We first stumbled across our latest addition to handsome Spanish men, Miguel Ángel Silvestre, while watching the American television series, Sense8. Miguel played the rather gorgeous gay actor, Lito Rodriguez.
Miguel Ángel Silvestre was born on April 6, 1982 in Castellón, Comunitat Valenciana, Spain as Miguel Ángel Silvestre Rambla. The son of María Lidón and Miguel Angel Silvestre ( a physiotherapist and a bank manager) in Castellón de la Plana, 33 year old Miguel originally began his career as a tennis player. Unfortunately a shoulder injury forced him to rethink his career, so he went on to study drama, physical theatre, modern dance and acrobatics. Rumour has it that it was his aunt who introduced him to drama.
Viewers of Spanish television will know him best in his role as Alberto Márquez in Velvet, a part he has been playing since 2013. Apparently it is available on Netflix for those who cannot access Spanish television channels. That’s Christmas sorted then.
Miguel first entered the world of acting in 2002 in Raval de Castellón theatre in the play Verdadero oeste, as Sam Shepard. In 2003, he starred as Mario Fraty in Porn, at the Teatro Art in Brut.
In 2004, he starred in the play Noches de amor efímero, in the television series Mis Adorables Vecinos. He was also cast in the movie, a golpes, by the director Juan Vicente Córdoba and as Javi in the movie Vida y Color by Santiago Tabernero and additionally gained his first role ina television series – Motivos personales.
In 2005, his film career continued in the movie La distancia, playing a boxer – a role which gained him two awards.
Miguel supports various charitable causes, including SocialBid , Massivegood , supporting the Sahara.
As if his sporty background, acting talent and dashing good looks weren’t enough – Miguel also loves dogs – and one in particular, Pistachio. Press play on the image below to see just how much.

From 2005-2010, Miguel Angel Silvestre was in a relationship with actress Belén López , whom he met filming the series Motivos personales. In 2011 he began dating the actress Blanca Suarez. Although they parted in 2014 they remain good friends. Miguel went on to enjoy time with Canarian model Miriam Pérez. He is apparently now single.
If Alan reads this and notices my suitcases at the front door, he will realise I am leaving him. Leaving him for Miguel. Sorry Alan – but Miguel is single right now. Wonder how he feels about women in their forties… … …
