Life and careerEdit

Born in Lisbon, Huerta grew up in Madrid and he studied economics before giving up studies in favor of an acting career.[1] He was one of the busiest character actors of the 1960s and 1970s and worked his way up from uncredited bit parts to leading roles even if usually in low budget films.[2] The portly, bearded and bald actor appeared in more than 100 films, mainly spaghetti western films, splitting his time between leading roles as the sympathetic sidekick of the hero and character roles such as Mexican bandits, bartenders and sleazy businessmen.[2] Declined the spaghetti western genre, after 1977 he significantly slowed his activities.[2]
