Spanish-Argentine actor Alberto Ammann is in a long-term relationship with fellow film actress Clara Mendez-Leite. It is not sure when the couple started dating, but their Instagram accounts speak volumes of their adorable chemistry.
Ammann first shared pictures of his girlfriend on his Instagram on November 5, 2015. He Instagrammed a silhouette photo of hers and disclosed they spent time together in Almería, Spain.
Though he became vocal about his partner in 2015, his girlfriend's Instagram suggests that their union stretches as far as 2012.
They had worked together in the 2012 movie, Invader; Ammann portrayed the role of Pablo while Leite had served as an assistant makeup artist. And during the premiere of the movie, the couple shared PDAs on the red carpet. The Mars actor shared the throwback picture from the event on his Instagram in December 2016.
The lovebirds started making public appearances at red carpet events in 2014. They attended the Gijón international festival's opening ceremony in November 2014 and graced the premiere of La Deuda at the Malaga Festival in April 2015.
They also attended the Spanish Film Awards 'Goya' in Madrid, Spain, on December 3, 2018.
Apart from the pictures from red carpet events, the duo also awes their fans with casual photos and love-filled messages for each other.
For Instance, on Ammann's 42nd birthday (October 20, 2020,) his partner uploaded a cute picture featuring the two. What was adorable than the photo was her captions that stated, " Today is the birthday of the person I love the most. Today, and all other days, I celebrate you! @albertoammann"
Reciprocating the affection, the Goya Award winner replied and thanked his girlfriend in the sweetest way possible. He wrote, " Thank you, my love!!"
Runs An Acting School with Partner
Ammann runs an acting school, Escuela para el Arte del Actor, with his girlfriend, Clara Mendez-Leite.
The duo founded the institution at La Palma, Madrid, in 2017. The school offers 4-year comprehensive training in interpretation and dramatic art and also seminars for both students and professional actors.
Ammann provides classes within the subject of interpretation in the first and second year. He also teaches a subject in the third year.
And not only does the Argentine actor run business with his partner, but he also teams up with her for movies. He starred with her in the 2020 series Tales of the Lockdown.
When His Gay Character Turned Heads
After achieving tremendous success and Goya Awards for his portrayal of Juan Oliver in the Spanish film Cell 211 in 2009, Ammann impressed fans with his acting stints on Netflix's original series, Narcos, and Narcos: Mexico.
He portrayed Hélmer “Pacho” Herrera — a real-life gay Colombian drug trafficker who was fourth in command in the Cali Cartel (active from 1977 to 1998.)
Impersonating the character, Ammann turned heads while he shared a kiss with another male character played by Maurho Jimenez Mora in the first episode of Narcos season 3 in September 2017.
