Biography by Sandra Brennan

Early in his acting career, Jordi Molla was in danger of being forever cast in pretty boy roles. Slender, short, and possessing a rugged and shaggy handsomeness, Molla changed that when he played a luckless small thief in La Buena Estrella (1997). Molla's other notable roles are in Bigas Luna's Jamon, Jamon (1994) and Montxo Armendariz's Kronen Stories (1994).
