Hector Bonilla Passed Away At The Age Of 83

Hector Bonilla, an 83-year-old veteran actor, died of natural causes on November 25 in Mexico City, Mexico. His son, Fernando Bonilla, verified the tragic news of his father’s death on social media by writing a moving eulogy.

“I genuinely want to speak about my father and keep talking about him.” But I believe the finest description of my employer I’ve ever read was written by Victor Hugo Rascón Banda in 1993 for The Process, in a review of the play The Foreigner. I’d want to share these with you. This was my father: “Bonilla is a popular and well-liked performer among university students, intellectuals, bankers, housewives, and laborers.”

He went on to say:

“It is a remarkable example of ubiquity; Announces Bacardi, performs in the soap opera Trapada, directs The Foreign, models clothing in the magazine Varón Mexico, stars in the film Snakes and Stairs, and oversees a critical cultural project coupled to this city with the regent.” And it’s all happening at the same time.”

Although neither Hector Bonilla’s son nor any other representation revealed a reason for his death, many outlets reported that the legendary Mexican actor was suffering from kidney cancer. After the news of Bonilla’s death became public, condolences began to flood online, with the Mexican government’s Secretary of Culture tweeting about it.
