António Silva (circa 1930s/ 1940s)


Portuguese actor who appeared in more than 40 productions over his more than 50 years in acting. It was in movies that his popularity and ingenuity as an actor was established. He performed in dramatic as well as comedic roles in over 30 films including Wild Cattle (1934), As Pupilas do Senhor Reitor (1935), O Pátio das Cantigas (1942), O Costa do Castelo (1943), Amor de Perdição (1943), Camões (1946), O Leão da Estrela (1947), and Fado (1948).

António Silva was an employee at a drugstore, a cashier and a fireman, where he rose to the rank of commander, before he became an actor.

Between 1913 and 1921, he travelled with the António de Sousa company across Brazil, where he starred in Brazilian silent films such as Convém Martelar and Coração de Gaúcho in 1920, and in the same year he married Josefina Barco.

He died on 3 March 1971, aged 84, in Lisbon.
