Ban­deras swaps film for fash­ion with col­lege stint

The China Post - - ARTS -

An­to­nio Ban­deras has swapped film for fash­ion, at least tem­po­rar­ily.

The “Mask of Zorro” star is study­ing at Cen­tral Saint Martins, the Lon­don col­lege that trained de­sign­ers Stella McCart­ney and Alexan­der McQueen.

This week, Ban­deras tweeted a pic­ture of him­self sur­rounded by dressmaker’s dum­mies and the words: “The 2nd week of stud­ies at Cen­tral St Martin be­gins. In­tense, ex­cit­ing, se­ri­ous and fun all the same time.”

The col­lege con­firmed Thurs­day that the ac­tor is tak­ing a spe­cially crafted short course in fash­ion. The course lasts sev­eral weeks and is due to end be­fore full-time stu­dents re­turn in Oc­to­ber.

The 55-year-old Span­ish ac­tor told a Bri­tish TV show ear­lier this year that he as­pired to study fash­ion.

His re­cent roles in­clude the vil­lain in “The Sponge­Bob Movie: Sponge out of Wa­ter.”
