Roberto Luis Carnaghi Fernández (born May 13, 1938) is an Argentine actor who has appeared in film, television, and theater. He portrays Alfredo Bilder in Soy Luna.

Life and Career

Carnaghi was born on May 13, 1938 in Villa Adelina. He studied acting in the school of the Teatro Municipal de San Isidro and the National School of Drama, where he graduated in 1966.[2][3]

He began his professional career as a stage actor in the Teatro General San Martin.[2] His stage roles have included major roles in several plays of Shakespeare, including King Lear and The Merchant of Venice.[4]

Roberto Carnaghi got his start in advertising at the James Walter Thompson advertising agency. He was initially rejected, as his face was not up to standards, but he was eventually hired, and worked in nearly 100 advertisements, promoting brands such as Ford and Citroen.[3] His work allowed him to work in TV in the 1980s, as well as some minor film roles. He became famous with his roles on Tato Bores' talk show. He also worked for comedians Antonio Gasalla and Guillermo Francella.[5]

He worked on the 2006 Argentine telenovela Montecristo and his character referenced the kidnapping of babies of the Argentine guerrillas killed during the 1970s Dirty War. Although he is completely against such action, he tried to avoid making his character inherently evil, so he asked for his character to be married to an infertile wife.[3] In that year, he also received the Gold ACE Award for his 40 years of work.[6]

In 2012, he took part in the successful telenovela Graduados. Carnaghi and Mirta Busnelli played the parents of a Jewish family.[7] He received a Tato Award as a supporting actor and he was declared a "featured personality of culture" by the legislature of the Buenos Aires.[8][9] He received a similar recognition from his hometown of Villa Urquiza.[9]

In 2017, he joined the cast of Soy Luna for its second season in the role of Alfredo Bilder. For his eightieth birthday, a recognition of his life's work was shown at the Teatro San Martín.[10]
