Argentinian TV series “Wild angel” (Muñeca brava) was released in 1998 and became a real telekhit — especially in Russia. Since then it’s been more than 20 years, but many still with trepidation remember the soap Opera and replaying the words from the theme song of the series Сambio Dolor. And if the female leading role Natalia Oreiro we continue to hear a lot in the media (she regularly comes to Russia with concerts and even cooperated with Russian fashion brands), about her co-star Facundo Aran fans know very little. In honor of the 47-th anniversary of the actor we wanted to learn what happened to his life after the resounding success of “Wild angel”. As it turned out, the actor continues to act in serials, has three children with his lover, he enjoys surfing and a lot more! This and many other things in our material.

Thanks to the TV series, Haran for many was the sex symbol of the generation 90: his big blue eyes (which seemed always on the wet spot from an overabundance of feelings) were forced to melt millions of girls around the world.
Life after “angel”
After filming “Wild angel” with Facundo Arana fell a lot of suggestions to work: every Argentine Director wanted to see the actor in his series. In 1999, he starred in the TV series Good neighbors (Buenos vecinos), and in 2001 in the TV series “Iago, dark passion” (Yago, pasión morena).
“Iago, dark passion” Aran played passionate love is no longer with Oreiro and Canellos Neira. The show was crazy ratings, and he even received the award “Martin Fierro”. After Facundo starred in several projects, but none of them became as popular as “Wild angel”.

2002 was issued to Facundo is so rich that he decided to take a gap year and go in a big trip to Argentina — it was the first vacation. 10 years of hard work. Returning from a trip and accumulated energy, the actor started to act in serials and in parallel participated in the theatrical production of “visiting Mr. green”.

From 2007 to 2011 Haran again for a time ceased to appear, but then came back on the TV. The latest work of Facundo to date, began shooting in the TV show “you want to be there”, which ended in 2017.
Making another break in the filming (for some reason we have no doubt that Arana will be back on TV, and maybe even again paired with Oreiro!), Facundo devoted himself to the theatre. Now the actor is busy in the play “Love letters” (Cartas de Amor), which plays along with the iconic Argentine actress Soledad Silveira.
The production tells the love story of Andy and Melissa, who fell in love with each other as teenagers, but were separated, and life was a touching correspondence.

Facundo Arana is very inspired and proud of this performance, which is placed on the stage of the theatre in the Argentine city of Mar del Plata.
We have a very beautiful piece, we love each other, and to come here for the theatre season — a real gift, especially because the Lido theatre where we’re playing now, was empty. Therefore, we feel the blessings, feel part of a wonderful event when this season will come alive in another theatre. We exit the theater and interact with the audience, and it means to experience the theater every minute of the day,

Surfing is another passion. which he devotes a lot of time. And the passion on the Board shares the wife of Facundo, a 42-year-old Maria Susini, and their three children. It’s a hobby actor masterfully combines with the work: evenings at the theater, and a surfboard on the waves.
For the second year in a row we combine sand and surf with my work in the theater. Children spend the whole day in the water, engaging, and learning with amazing speed. Talking and spending time with five players — that’s all I could ever dream of. Surfing the whole family is a dream come true. I still can’t believe it,
