Esteban Serrador (April 30, 1903 Santiago-June 6, 1978 Argentina) was a Chilean actor.
Serrador had a prolific career spanning over four decades, and was one of the most well-known actors in Chile during his time. He began his career in the 1930s, appearing in numerous films including "El Húsar de la Muerte" (The Death Hussar) and "Subterra" (The Underground). He also worked extensively in theater, starring in plays such as "La Casa de Bernarda Alba" (The House of Bernarda Alba) and "La Loca de Chaillot" (The Madwoman of Chaillot).
In addition to his acting work, Serrador was a prominent figure in Chilean cultural circles, and was involved in the founding of the National School of Dramatic Art in 1941. He was also an important influence on many young actors and filmmakers, and helped to shape the direction of Chilean cinema throughout his career.
Despite his significant contributions to the arts in Chile, Serrador's legacy has been somewhat overshadowed by his controversial political views. In the 1970s, he became involved with the far-right movement in Chile and was a supporter of the military coup that brought Augusto Pinochet to power. This has led to criticism of Serrador's work and his legacy in recent years.
