Isabel Mestres Núñez (El Masnou, Barcelona, December 10, 1947) is a Spanish actress.[1]


After studying at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona, Mestres began her working career as a designer.

However, at the same time she began to make incursions into independent theaters that eventually led her to study dramatic art.

In 1974 she moved to Madrid to make her film début with Jorge Grau's No Profanar el Sueño de los Muertos. That same year she participated in La Regenta, by Gonzalo Suárez. Over the next decade she worked on interesting titles that gave her the opportunity to work with some of the best directors of the moment such as Elisa, vida mía (1977) by Carlos Saura, Salomé (1978) by Pedro Almodóvar, Jugando a papás (1978) by Joaquín Coll Espona, Cuernos a la catalana (1979) by Francesc Bellmunt, La muchacha de las pangas de oro (1980), by Vicente Aranda, Los últimos golpes del Torete (1980), by José Antonio de la Loma, Gary Cooper, Who Art in Heaven (1980), by Pilar Miró and Truhanes (1983) by Miguel Hermoso.

Mestres also appeared in in the Opera Prima by José A. Zorrilla. Also remembered was her role as "Salome" in Franco Zeffirelli's classic series Jesus of Nazareth, which had an extensive cast of stars.

From the beginning of the 1980s, she also began to work in television, and participated in Cervantes (TV series) (1981), Los gozos y las sombras (1982), Don Baldomero y su gente (1982), Los desastres de la guerra (1983), Anillos de oro (1983) and Vísperas (1987). In addition, between 1982 and 1987, she presented the television program about current events in film, De película.

Mestres' appearances from 1987 onwards became increasingly spaced out, and she finally shot her last film in 1996.

In the 1990s, she performed in some theater productions such as La casa de los siete balcones (1990), by Alejandro Casona, with Mary Carrillo, Trap for birds (1990), by José Luis Alonso de Santos, A moon for the bastard (1994), by Eugene O'Neill and Destino Broadway, (1996), with Amparo Baró and Luis Prendes.[2]
