Many believe that the era of computer graphics has simplified the work of cinematographers as much as possible, once and for all solving the problem of creating monsters, aliens and fantastic creatures.

Then get to know Javier Botet, whose name won't tell you anything, but the characters he played are perfectly familiar.

Actor Javier Botet was born in the Spanish city of Ciudad Real, near Madrid, but thanks to his rare physique and undoubted acting talent, he now lives and works in Hollywood. Javier suffers from a rare genetic disease — Morphan syndrome, because of which his weight at two meters tall does not exceed 56 kg.

Javier's disease is expressed not only in the absence of a fat layer and elongation of the limbs — the actor's joints have increased flexibility, which an ordinary person can develop only with years of hard training, and even with special data.

This day completely changed the life of Javier, who finally understood what his vocation was.
