Wikipedia has an article about:

Antonio Banderas is a Spanish film actor, who performed the voice of Puss in Boots in Shrek 2, Shrek the Third, Shrek Forever After, and Puss in Boots.


As a kid, Antonio Banderas wanted to become a professional football (soccer) player until he had a broken foot since 15 years old. He went on to join in some drama classes, eventually joining a theater troupe that toured all over Spain. His work in the theater, and his performances on the streets, eventually landed him a spot with the National Theatre of Spain.

Antonio's first film apperance was in Pestañas postizas, a 1982 spanish film, but did not start acting in American films in 1991. Popularity came to Banderas since his apperence in Philadelphia (1993).

His voice role as Puss in Boots in Shrek 2, Shrek the Third and the last film in the Shrek franchise, Shrek Forever After, helped make the character popular on the family film circuit.
