Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

The daughter of Spanish singer and actor Antonio Molina, Ángela Molina became a world-renowned actress in 1977 after starring in directorial icon Luis Buñuel's final film, "That Obscure Object of Desire." She portrayed the gorgeous flamenco dancer Conchita--or at least half of Conchita; due to a conflict with the original actress, Buñuel alternated two women in the role, sometimes switching mid-scene. The resulting effect was met with great critical acclaim for Buñuel and sent Molina soaring into the limelight. She appeared in dozens of films throughout the late '70s and early '80s, such as the ensemble drama "Traffic Jam," starring comedy star Alberto Sordi; the American basketball film "Streets of Gold," starring Wesley Snipes; and the 1985 crime drama "Un complicato intrigo di donne, vicoli e delitti," a performance that won Molina the prestigious David di Donatello Award for Best Actress, making her the first foreign actress to win the Italian honor. Among her many credits in Italian films, she was seen by English-speaking audiences as Mexican starlet Rosaura Revueltas in the Jeff Goldblum biopic "One of the Hollywood Ten," and as Angélica in Emilio Estevez's 2010 father-son drama "The Way,"...
