Style Icon XIV: Andy Garcia

Just to prove that, if I have one foot in the past, I am still looking forwards: Andy Garcia is in the still from his wonderful film The Lost City (2006)in which he stars and directs. The co-stars include the delectable Inès Sastre; Bill Murray and Dustin Hoffman. Slated by the mainstream critics, it is still, to my mind, a great film: centring on the 1959 revolution in Cuba and its consequences.

Born in 1956 in Cuba, the family later moved to the USA. Garcia first found full recognition when he played Vincent Mancini in The Godfather Part III (1990) and he was nominated for a best supporting actor Oscar ; he was also in The Untouchables (1987) and the more recent Ocean's Eleven -Thirteen film series.

  1. His clothing in the Ocean's series is a bit frightening. I wonder what he's like off-screen? He was also very good opposite Kenneth Brannaugh in "Dead Again."
