Bárbara LennieBárbara Lennie is a Spanish actress, born in Madrid on April 20th, 1984. Even though she was born in Spain her family moved back to Buenos Aires, Argentina where she lived until she was six years of age before returning to Spain. Lennie graduated in from the Royal School of Dramatic Art. Beginning at the young age of only 15, she participated in many films including All The Songs Are About Me, Girl in the Park, Everyday is Yours and More Pain than Glory.

She received critical acclaim for her role in Thirteen Roses directed by Emilio Martinez Lazaro and The Skin I Live In from the legendary Spanish director Pedro Almodovar. She was nominated for the Goya Award for Best Actress for Obaba. On television, she played a small yet memorable role in Red Eagle which led her to the current part in Isabel where she plays one of the Queen’s rivals Juana de Avis. Lenny also joined the fifth season of Love in Difficult Times from 2009 to 2010, in the role of Rosa Fernandez, an ambitious aspiring actress.

While in school during a boring economics class a stroke of luck led Barbara to participate in More Pain Than Glory by Víctor García León. Perhaps it was this role that prompted her to direct herself towards a life in the cinema.

A year later came the Mexican Every Day Is Yours, in which she shares the bill with Emma Suarez, as well as the acclaimed The Thirteen Roses by Emilio Martínez Lázaro, who works with many famous and talented actresses of his generation.

But it has not all been films that has highlighted the career of Bárbara Lenny. Her acceptance and recognition by the general public came from television, thanks to the series Countdown starring singer and actor Dani Martin, El Canto del Loco.

In it, Barbara portrayed a policewoman who is hard, strong and determined in her professional life, but a bundle of nerves and indecision when it comes to her personal life. After the end of the second season of Countdown, when it was announced that there would be no more episodes, Barbara went back to work on the big screen with The Wretched.

She also starred in the debut of Jonas Trueba's All The Songs Are About Me. To her credit the film also highlights a small role in The Skin I Live In by acclaimed Pedro Almodóvar.
