1981, Madrid

Javier was one of the children of ‘San Ildefonso’ — even singing for the first prize of the Christmas Lottery on two occasions, in 1993 and 1994. At a very young age he found his true vocation in the world of acting. With them aim of undergoing a thorough training he entered the Christina Rota school when he was 14 and it was there that the actress Raquel Perez became his teacher.

He would go on to gain a certain notoriety amongst a younger audience thanks to his work on the series Nada es para siempre (1999–2000) and Al salir de clase (1997–2001) being part of the final cast.

His career took a big turn when Pablo Malo cast him in Frío sol de invierno (2004). As a result he got the image of young, shy and emotionally fragile boy. For this reason, Pablo Malo recommended him to Gerardo Herrero who was looking for an actor to play the part of a twenty-something cocaine addict in Heroína, a title that made reference to the mother of a drug addict, a part performed by Adriana Ozores.

He finished 2005 with one shooting after another: Tu vida en 65”, La bicicleta and Días azules, for which El País de las Tentaciones dedicated a cover to him with the title ‘The summer of Pereira.’ Later he would go on to participate in Animales de compañía directed by Nicolás Muñoz, Aparecidos directed by Paco Cabezas and 8 Citas, directed by Peris Romano and Rodrigo Sorogoyen.

Some others TV projects have been Cuestión de Sexo, La República or Frágiles.

His latest movie projects included No tengas miedo by Montxo Armendariz, Stockholm by Rodrigo Sorogoyen, for what he got the Goya Award to the Best Emerging Actor in 2013 and Anochece en la India by Chema Rodríguez.

In 2013 Javier films Gran Reserva. El Origen (TVE) and the movie Serie Z with Samuel Gutiérrez. One year later he releases El Principio de Arquímedes under the direction of Carlos Panera y stars in the short film El Club de los 27 with Carlos Solano.

In 2016 he enters the cast of TV show Amar es para siempre (Antena 3).
