Biography and career Edit

Joaquim de Almeida was born in Lisbon, Portugal. His parents were pharmacists, and Joaquim was the sixth of eight kids. When he was eighteen, he attended the theater course at the Lisbon Conservatory (School of Theatre and Cinema) for two years. When the Conservatory closed temporarily in 1974 because of the Democratic Revolution, de Almeida moved to Vienna for a year, and then to New York City where he studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.

During his time in Austria and New York City, de Almeida worked in gardening and as a bartender, until he got his first role on the 1982 film The Soldier. After that, he has appeared in films like Beyond the Limit, Only You, Desperado (with Carlos Gomez), Clear and Present Danger (with Harris Yulin and Raymond Cruz), Behind Enemy Lines, The Life and Death of Bobby Z, Che: Part Two, and Fast Five (with Yorgo Constantine).

In 1998, Almeida appeared in an episode of La Femme Nikita (with Eugene Robert Glazer). The episode was written by Michael Loceff. Almeida has also appeared in other television productions, including Miami Vice, The West Wing, CSI: Miami (with Vincent Laresca), Bones (with T.J. Thyne), and Wanted.
