Juan Ferrer was an anonymous actor, an extra who worked as an actor in numerous amateur theater companies at a young age. In 1963 he had the opportunity to work in the movie "The Executioner" by Luis GarcÃa Berlanga, which became one of the best films of Spanish Cinema (FIPRESCI Prize at the Venice Film Festival in 1963). The appearance of Juan lasted just three minutes, and was merely testimonial. After that movie, he never came to work in films. His life has been spent in anonymity, living in Ariany, a small village in Mallorca (Spain), of just 800 inhabitants. Now, with 80 years of age, there is no single day that he does not remember those days of shooting in one of the best films in cinema history.
