Santiago Ramos goes from winning a Goya to collecting unemployment

Andrés Guerra came to the community of Desengaño 21 at a time when he was not going through a good economic situation. He was 2004 and was one of the main characters from the second season of ‘There is no one alive here’. He appeared on the small screen for 56 episodes and left the television series in 2006.

Sixteen years later, the parody has colored the reality of actor Santiago Ramos, who played that family man and failed businessman, seized from head to toe by his shenanigans: the artist went from fame to collect unemployment. In addition, he suffers from a neurodegenerative disease and plays the ‘grandfather’ of the son of María Adánez, with whom he shared the stage in ‘Aquí no hay qué viva’. and now family.

Ramos’ popularity is prior to being a neighbor of Juan Cuesta (played by José Luis Gil), Paloma (Loles León), Ramon ‘Moncho’ Heredia ‘(Pablo Chiapella), Mauricio Hidalgo (Luis Merlo), or the janitor Emilio (Fernando weaver).

In 1985 he starred in the famous comedy ‘La Vaquilla’, by Luis García Berlanga. His role in the film ‘Como un relámpago’ earned him two Goya Awards in 1996: for best leading actor and the distinction for best male performance.

His filmography consists of seventy screenings, but his great passion is the theater. On stage, she shared the bill with actresses like Verónica Forqué in ‘¡Ay, Carmela!’, or Cayetana Guillén Cuervo in ‘La Test’. Her last project was not in 2012. Since then, she has had a hard time finding more jobs, both on television and on stage, and that led her to the unemployment lines in 2014.

«I have always defended myself with the TV»

«There is a lot of unemployment, few possibilities for the theater, where I have always defended myself. I have always defended myself with television, with the mixture of things that I can do, but the moment is tremendous and it is not over yet, “said the actor at the time.

He even dared to answer the question as to why we haven’t been able to see him in ‘La que se avecina’, as it was created by the same producers as ‘Aquí no hay qué viva’, the Caballero brothers: «It seems that it wasn’t my nature site. It was their thing: I was delighted to do it and do theater even at the same time », he said.

Ramos has suffered from Parkinson’s disease since 2015. He is cared for by María Adánez’s husband, the neurologist Ignacio Hernández Medrano. “He is wonderfully cared for”, they affirm different to this newspaper. The actor has not entrusted his health to Adánez by chance. At the beginning of the 2000s they only shared scenes, but love arose on the set of ‘There is no one alive here’. Specifically, Adánez is the daughter of Ramos’ second wife, a serial make-up artist.

Adánez and Hérnandez Medrano, who married in November 2021, became parents a few months earlier, in May.

Ramos has become the “grandfather” of little Claudio and the actress boasts about it on her social networks.

Santiago Ramos is away from the stage, now he is ‘grandfather Santi’.

In 2020, Santiago Ramos was recognized with the AISGE Actúa Award for his career as an actor.

He currently cares for the son of María Adánez, daughter of his second wife.
