Hello fans,

Today we're catching up with Ricardo Montalban. One thing I
was totally happy to see is that he has been married to the
same woman since 1944. That is something you just don't see
often inn Hollywood.

Be Well,
Anisa

                     RICARDO MONTALBAN

BIRTH DATE: November 25, 1920, Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico

BIRTH NAME: Ricardo Gonzalo Pedro Montalban y Merino


CLAIM TO FAME: Ricardo is best known for his rola as Mr. Roarke
in 'Fantasy Island'. 

FAMILY LIFE: Georgiana Young  (October 1944 - present) 4 children


INFO: Ricardo was originally a song-and-dance man in both Mexican 
and American movie musicals. After that genre faded he became a 
character actor, often relegated to 'ethnic roles.' In 'Sayonara'
with Marlon Brando he played Japanese, he won an Emmy playing a 
Sioux on the mini-series How the West was Won, and he was also 
sometimes cast as Arabs or Greeks. Usually, though, he played the 
"Latin lover," and eventually he broke through stereotype-casting 
to become known as just a damn fine actor.

TRIVIA: Wife Georgiana's sister was actress Loretta Young.

Had a 9 1/2 hour operation on his spine to repair an injury he 
received making 'Across the Wide Missouri'. He has been in 
constant pain ever since and for the most part he is confined 
to a wheelchair since 1993. 

For years, was a commercial spokesman for Chrysler automobiles.
You remember how he waxed eloquently about the "fine Corinthian 
leather"...

Agreed to reprise his role of "Khan" in Star Trek: The Wrath of 
Khan for only $100,000 because he loved the role so much.

"Star Trek" (1966). He played Khan Noonien Singh in the "Star 
Trek" (1966) episode "Space Seed" and Star Trek: The Wrath of 
Khan (1982).

In 1970, he founded the non-profit organization "Nosotros" whose 
goal is "to help fulfill the goals of persons of Spanish-speaking 
origin in the motion picture and television industry." 
http://www.nosotros.org

In 1999, he purchased an old Hollywood theater designed by the 
well known architect John C. Austin and built in 1927: "conceiving 
a plan to rebuild this theater to benefit the diverse community 
and to build a state-of- art school to compliment this live theater."

WHERE IS HE NOW: Ricardo has continued to work, doing many voice
roles in cartoons both for TV an dthe Big Screen. 

He usually delivers his lines from a wheelchair. In his most recent 
role, he played Grandfather Cortex in the Spy Kids films. He also

and the Council Chairman in the big-screen cartoon 'The Ant Bully.'

In 2003 he received the Catholics in Media Associates Lifetime
