Rodolfo Beban died this Saturday night at the age of 84. The sad news was reported through social networks in a statement issued by the Argentine Association of Actors and caused a profound impact on the entertainment world.
“It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to the actor and director Rodolfo Bebán. His extensive artistic career includes unforgettable works in film, theater and television“, Said in a tweet the entity, to which he had been affiliated since 1962.
“We accompany their children, family and loved ones in this difficult moment,” he added.

As reported, the renowned actor died on Saturday night and his relatives confirmed that there will be no wake.
A journalistic report published on Friday in America had said that Bebán had been hospitalized for years in a nursing home; and that he would have been suffering from depression.
Born in Ciudadela in 1938, Bebán lived his childhood in Morón where he became a fan of the “gallito”, although he also had a football sympathy for Independiente. During adolescence he discovered his passion for the theater. In an interview with Clarín in 2014, Bebán recalled how his beginnings in acting were.
“I entered the theater following a friend, because in my mother’s house the word ‘theater’ was forbidden… I was separated from my father, who was an actor (Miguel Bebán). When I told her I wanted to be an actor, when I was 14 or 15 years old, it almost killed me. The point is that one day I went with my friend to the back of the Morón theater and we read that on the little door it said ‘Extras are needed for Fuenteovejuna’. He wanted us to go in and I didn’t want to know anything. But he swelled me up so much that he convinced me. And we did it, we didn’t say text, but we were there, on stage, it was incredible, ”he recalled.

Bebán said that his mother never found out about that episode and he decided to continue because of what would be his great passion. “Later I entered the theater school, where María Elena Sagrera, Bianco and Labat gave us classes. They were romantic that they were, lovers of this profession,” he recalled.
In the interview, Bebán stressed that having worked in theater with Alfredo Halcón (Filosofía de vida, in 2012) was “a luxury, a gift from heaven that the profession gave him”, and that “he never considered himself a gallant”. “Being a leading man gave me and took things from me. But I’m not one of those who deny,” he admitted.
With consecrated titles on the small screen such as Malevo (1972) or Four Men for Eva (1966), he acknowledged in that report that he owed his notoriety to television, despite having gone through independent theater, working in Europe and working for years to improve his training. “I did the Moreira on television. (Leonardo) Favio wouldn’t have noticed me if he hadn’t seen me on TV. And I swear that when he chose me, the only ones who believed that I could do it were Favio and I, nobody plus”.

During the success of the novel “Love has every woman” he had memorable television couples with Bárbara Mujica and Thelma Biral. Claudia Lapacó also participated, with whom Bebán married in 1966 and had two children. He was then in a relationship for 18 years with Gabriela Gilli.
