NERJA Town Hall has expressed its regret for the death of the actor Manuel Gallardo, on Friday, August 21, and wants to convey its condolences to family and friends for the loss of this great actor.
Gallardo contributed with his performance to make the Verano Azul Series one of the most popular series, both nationally and internationally, in the history of television.
Manuel Gallardo, known for his portrayal of the character of Javier, Javi’s father – played by Juanjo Artero – in the series Verano Azul, has died in Madrid at the age of 85, after suffering a stroke.
