Yesterday I saw the 1992-movie Belle Époque. A great spanish movie featuring an 18-year-old Penélope Cruz and Maribel Verdú amongst others. Maribel really caught my eyes playing the sister to Penelope; Rocío. She was born in 1970 in Madrid and started her acting career at age 13. She also played the role of Mercedes in the amazing movie Pan’s Labyrinth.
Verdú is married to Pedro Larrañaga with whom she has 2 children. She won a Goya Award in 2008 for her lead role in Seven Billiard Tables.
