Mexican actor Romualdo Bucio Bucio, known by his pseudonym Agustín Bernal, died Monday.  The famous film villain suffered a myocardial infarction at his ranch El Caulote located in Parácuaro, in the state of Michoacán.  The 59-year-old actor suffered from a heart problem, as the organ grew abnormally and had several cardiac complications throughout his life.

Agustín Bernal made more than 150 works, among them many action films in the seventies and eighties of the last century and numerous "video home" tapes, a popular Mexican genre close to the B series, with crazy themes based on local stereotypes.  Bernal shared credits with the Almada brothers, Jorge Reynoso, David Reynoso, Jorge Luke, Sergio Goyri and Valentín Trujillo.  He also directed the company Producciones El Caulote.

Among his most recent films are El patrón (2015), No returns (2013) and El Cartel de Zacatecas (2005).  He also acted in a television series about the life of the singer Jenni Rivera (in 2013) and in an episode of The Monster (in 2007).

"I am very sorry for the news of your departure, always, countryman!"  expressed through his Twitter account the governor of Michoacán, Silvano Aureoles.  The National Association of Interpreters of Mexico also expressed through their Facebook account their deep sorrow for the death of the actor.  "They called him the RAMBO MEXICANO, and in the industry of" video-home "it was a name that always stood out," Mexican filmmaker Francisco Javier Padilla, with whom he worked in Suave Patria, stated in his Twitter account.

Besides the cinema, Bernal tried his luck in politics, recently he held a municipal office in Parácuaro, the town that saw his death and birth.  His remains now lie in the family crypt in Michoacán.
