Manuel Julian Cardona was born in Popayan on April 25, 1977. His early acting memories are of his role as Baby Jesus in pageants and processions around his native city, well known for this type of religious celebration. At age 9, Cardona moved to Cali and entered the Berchmans School with his brothers Juan Jose and Francisco. At 12, he landed his first commercial and began taking part in school plays. After finishing high school, Manolo moved to Bogotá where he studied International Finances and Relations at the Universidad Externado de Colombia. His brother Francisco convinced him to audition for a modeling agency and he was immediately added to their book. He quickly gained enough experience to be selected from a group of 600 candidates for a role in the TV series Padres e hijos, where he starred for three years while continuing his studies and professional training. His talented portrayal of Nicolas Franco got him seen on Colombian television and in 1999 he moved on to the Cenpro Television soap ¿Por qué diablos? starring Marcela Carvajal. Manolo then studied acting in Colombia and Spain under the tutelage of a number of renowned teachers including Fernando Piernas. (Source: www.proimagenescolombia.com)

Manolo is very happy with the results of his debut as producer. Working with Carlos Moreno (Perro come perro, Todos tus muertos) ensured narrative and dramatic cohesiveness. “All modesty and humility aside, I think El cartel de los sapos has created a new “before” and “after” in Colombian filmmaking. Our industry has come a long way but I think this film will prove to be a landmark for audiences and new generations, and for new directors and talent, to say “yes, we can make films.” Aside from the subject matter, because I know it’s going to be controversial, El cartel de los sapos -- the look of the film, the level of production, the acting and directing – is the perfect example of our ability to make a solid, compact film on a par with any world-class production.” (Source: www.proimagenescolombia.com)
