Gabriel Goity

Gabriel Goity (born c. 1960) is an Argentine theatrical, film and television actor. He was born in the small Argentine town of Palomar.

Gabriel Goity left Palomar and moved to Buenos Aires with his family. His grandparents in particular instilled a love in him for drama. His grandfather was a film and theater lover and he would often take Goity to the movies and to watch plays.

Goity was undecided about what he wanted to become in life until 1981, when he went to see the Cyrano de Bergerac play in Buenos Aires. He became inspired by the work that actor Ernesto Blanco did on the play, and decided to take acting seriously, becoming a student at the prestigious Conservatorio de Arte Dramatico, where some of Argentina's most famous actors have also graduated from.

Goity began acting in film soon after graduating from the conservatory, and he made multiple films in Argentina, often in the role of the melancholic character. Most of his jobs during the earlier stages of his career, however, were on theater plays.

Goity admits that some of his plays have not been generally seen with good eyes by Argentine theater critics; such was the case of one play, where he starred alongside Cristina Banegas: the play was so critizized, that the producers and cast decided to make mock promotion of it, telling the public to come see Argentina's worst critizized play on their newspaper ads.

Despite the many movies and plays that Goity had done, it wasnt until 2004 that he became famous, when hired by Telefe to play Uriarte in the television Spanish soap opera, Los Roldan. In Los Roldan, Goity played a middle-aged man who is in love with a transvestite (but who ignores that his love interest is a man), faces a marriage crisis and opposes Tito Roldan, head of the family that moves next to Uriartes mansion.

Goity shared credits in that soap opera with Florencia De La V, Claribel Medina, Lola Berthet and Miguel Angel Rodriguez, among others.

Soon after the soap opera ended, Goity said of his newly found popularity that "(he) went from signing one autograph each week to signing fourteen autographs each day!

Goity is currently starring in a play named Adentro (Inside").
