Navarrese actor Pedro Osinaga died this afternoon at 81 years old in Madrid, the theater impresario Jesus Cimarro, personal friend of the artist, told Efe. The burning chapel with the mortal remains of the actor will be installed in the funeral home of the M-30 in Madrid, according to the same source.

Pedro Osinaga, who was born on December 15, 1936 in Pamplona, ​​has been one of the most popular Spanish actors to have toured with his company in numerous theater comedies, as noted by the jury of the XV Pepe Isbert Theater Award that was granted in June 2011.

Proof of this is that the actor starred in the comedy Sé infiel y no mires con quién, by English playwright Ray Cooney, for 14 years (1971 and 1985), a period in which he was seen by more than eight million viewers in more than 10,000 representations. Osinaga also worked under the command of Gustavo Pérez Puig in Estudio 1 of TVE in the mythical Twelve Men without Mercy (1973, in the then UHF channel), and was the only one of those twelve performers who was still alive. He appeared in films such as Don Juan (1974), Cuentos de las sábanas blancas (1977) and Réquiem por un empleado (1978).

He was always very close to his hometown, where he studied music and from where, after obtaining a scholarship, he moved to Madrid to start his artistic career in the world of zarzuela, mainly as a baritone. Between its last works figure the strange pair, of Neil Simon, that he carried out next to Joaquín Kremel.

Osinaga, who tried not to miss the Sanfermines, received the Gold Medal for Merit of the Fine Arts in 1999, and was awarded by the Association of Journalists of Navarre in 2010, among other professional recognitions. The actor confessed in 1988 that his professional career was possible because he left the position in the regional soccer team of Pamplona where he played to go to Madrid to make a career as an interpreter.
