Early lifeEdit

Ituño was born in Basauri, on June 18, 1974. She studied acting at the Basauri Theater School and also graduated in urban-industrial and political sociology from the University of the Basque Country.[1]

CareerEdit

Ituño's first appearance was in the Basque film Agur Olentzero, agur (Goodbye Olentzero, Goodbye) which was released in 1997.[2]

In 2001 she got a role in the soap opera Goenkale. In this television series, she played Nekane Beitia, a lesbian policewoman from the fictional village of Arralde. She played the role until 2015, when the show was canceled. This role increased her visibility in the Basque Country.[3][4]

She continued to work as an actress, starring in the films Loreak (Spanish submission for the Academy Awards) and Igelak, released in 2015 and 2016 respectively.[5][6] In 2017, she starred in the television series La casa de papel (broadcast on Antena 3 and then acquired by Netflix) in the role of Raquel Murillo, a police inspector.[7][8]

In addition to her film, television, and theater roles, she is also a singer in three bands: Dangiliske,[9] EZ3, and INGOT.[citation needed]

On 26 September 2017, she was a presenter of the Basque Film Gala and the EITB Gala for the 65th edition of the San Sebastian International Film Festival.[10]

She tested positive for COVID-19 in March 2020. She subsequently made a full recovery.[11]

It was announced in May 2020 that Ituño will make her English language debut in the British animated short film Salvation Has No Name, due for release in 2020.[12]
