Lluís Homar i Toboso (born April 20, 1957) is a Spanish actor and theater director from Barcelona. He is best known for his roles in Pedro Almodóvar's Bad Education (2004) and Broken Embraces (2009), in Emilio Aragón's Paper Birds (2010), and for his portrayal of the robot Max in Kike Maíllo's film Eva (2011).


Homar was born on April 20, 1957 in Barcelona. He studied primary education at Escuelas Homar in Horta, a neighbourhood of Barcelona, and was an altar boy at the church of Sant Joan d’Horta. He studied law in the Autonomous University of Barcelona and took some courses at Institud del Teatre of Barcelona.

In 1974, he participated in a production of Othello with director Angel Carmona. A year later, he joined the theatre group Teatre del Escorpi and appeared in their plays including Terra Baixa and Quiriquibú.

In 1976, Homar joined with other actors to fund the cooperative theatre company Teatre Lliure of Barcelona, where he took part in over 30 plays and was artistic director from 1992–1998.

During this time, Homar also appeared in numerous TV commercials, and had minor roles in TV series such as Llibre dels fets del bon rei en Jaume (one episode) and Lletres catalanes (two episodes).

Homar finally appeared on the big screen in the 1981 film based on Mercé Rodoreda's novella The Time of the Doves, where he played the male lead opposite Silvia Munt. This was followed by roles in the films Bad Education and Broken Embraces, both directed by Pedro Almodovar, and to the lead role of pope Alejandro VI in Antonio Hernandez's film Los Borgia.

Homar's portrayal of the caring household robot Max in the sci-fi film Eva, directed by Kike Maíllo, brought him both the 2011 Goya Award and Gaudi Award for Best Supporting Actor.

He received critical acclaim for his performance as King Juan Carlos I in the Spanish TV production 23-F: El dia mas dificil del rey, about the days of the putsch attempt of 1981, and was also lauded for his portrayals of Roman politician and general Servio Sulpicio Galba in the TV productions Antena 3 Hispania, La leyenda and Imperium.

Homar lives in Canet de Mar.

A synopsis prior to the release of the film stated: "Caotica Ana is the story-journey of Ana during four years of her life, from 18 to 22. A countdown, 10, 9, 8, 7... until 0, like in hypnosis, through which Ana proves that she does not live alone, that her existence seems like a continuation of other lives of young women who died in a tragic way, all at the age of 22, and who live in the abyss of her unconscious memory. This is her chaos. Ana is the princess and the monster of this feminist fable against the tyranny of man."

During her election campaign governor Londsdale (Sue Flack) is shot at by a sniper as she speaks in public. John Ridley (Til Schweiger) confounds the first attack but when he is running for cover with his client in tow, they are still under fire and his colleague is hit in the open. Lonsdale urges Ridley to save his friend, although this means to turn his back on her for a moment. He complies eventually and hereby makes it possible for a killer (Chazz Palminteri) to approach Lonsdale and to kill her for Ridley to see. Ridley consequently retires as a body guard, henceforth being haunted by nightmares and left by his wife who couldn't cope with him any longer. Only years later he reluctantly agrees when his former boss persuades him to take on a last mission in Barcelona. Ridley is gobsmacked when he meets the chief witness he is supposed to protect for it is the very man who has ruined his life. However, the former killer Lee Maxwell (Chazz Palminteri) is about to die of cancer and is desperate to make it up with his daughter Catherine (Cristina Brondo). Seeking redemption by being a witness against the villain Victor Tolkin (Nick Brimble) the former killer has made himself a target. Ridley tries to fight them off but in the end it is revealed that his boss has doublecrossed him and that he has hired Ridley solely because he expected him to fail again. Supported by his old brother in arms Mark Graver ( Lluís Homar) and the increasingly weakened Maxwell, Ridley stands up to Tolkin's henchmen.
