Eduardo Noriega was born in Santander in 1973. He studied music and piano at his local High School of Music and in 1990 attended his first acting lessons, making his first appearances in the staging of works such as Federico García Lorca’s Yerma, directed by Román Calleja. In 1992, he travelled to Madrid to study theatre at the Real Escuela Superior de Arte Dramático (RESAD); starting to work right from his very first year in short films by directors like Alejandro Amenábar or Mateo Gil. In 1994, he made his feature film debut as an actor (Historias del Kronen, by Montxo Armendáriz), having stayed among the leading Spanish actors ever since.

Alejandro Amenábar’s Tesis (Thesis, 1996) opened the doors to success for him, and he once again worked with the same director in Abre los ojos (Open Your Eyes, 1997). The list of prestigious filmmakers to have directed Eduardo Noriega includes Pedro Olea (Más allá del jardín, 1996), Rafael Moleón (Cuestión de suerte, 1997), Antonio del Real (Cha cha chá, 1998), Miguel Santesmases (La fuente amarilla, 1998), Alfonso Arandia (Carretera y manta, 1998), Mateo Gil (Nadie conoce a nadie, 1999), Marcelo Piñeyro (Plata quemada, 2000), Guillermo del Toro (El espinazo del diablo, 2001), Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón (Visionarios, 2001), Daniel Calparsoro (Guerreros, 2002), Marc Recha (Les mans buides, 2004), Miguel Courtois (El Lobo, 2004) and Serge Frydman (Mon ange, 2005).

His most recent films are Che Guevara (Josh Evans, 2006), Alatriste (Agustín Díaz Yanes, 2006), Vantage Point (Pete Travis, 2007), Transsiberian (Brad Anderson, 2007) and Lolita’s Club (Vicente Aranda, 2007).
