BiographyEdit

Bó broke into acting aged 16 in 1959, in the film ... y el Demonio creó a los hombres, and costarred in several films directed by his father and starring Isabel Sarli. In 1971 he appeared in Así es Buenos Aires, and achieved greater fame as one of the protagonists in the Superagentes ("Super Agents") saga of spy-adventure films (1974-1983). He played villain roles for two movies in a series of nine sword and sorcery films that Roger Corman produced in Argentina during the 1980s, in association with Aries Cinematográfica Argentina: Deathstalker (1983) and the classic B-movie Barbarian Queen (1984).

Bó started to distance himself from acting after the release of the comic-based comedy film Las Puertitas del señor López (1988), and turned into film production. He helped produce two movies directed by Jorge Polaco: the controversial cult film Kindergarten (1989), which was deemed as obscene and bordering on pornography, and banned by a judge's order at the time of its release, being only officially released in 2010; and the black comedy Siempre es difícil volver a casa (1992), which was a critical and commercial failure at the time of its release, but has slowly gained some critical reappraisal over the years.

Except for a few roles on TV series or documentary interviews, and a supporting role in a new Superagentes film (Los superagentes, nueva generación, 2008), Bó has been mostly retired from the filmmaking world in any capacity, focusing instead in being interviewed and appearing in film retrospectives and showings dedicated to his father Armando's body of work.
