If the magic of VFX and CGI is considered a gift for the horror genre – then the Spanish actor, Javier Botet, is an even better gift.
Unfortunately, having a rare hereditary disease, I doubt this will help Javier become a monster that comes out of nightmares, just need to dress up and not require any complicated techniques.
Javier was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome when he was only 6 years old. Although 1m98 high but he weighs less than 55kg. In addition to being thin, this syndrome also affects the limbs and Javier's fingers – they are long and can even contract in different directions, in short, very strange.
Javier Botet's looks are both lovely and scary
In order not to suffer the future of disease, Javier proved to the world that, how the movie industry and especially horror movies need him.
For years, Javier has become a familiar face in Hollywood horror movies, such as the roles of Slender Man (Slender Man), xenomorph (Alien: Covenant), Crooked Man (The Conjuring 2), Faceless Man (The Crucifixion), Keyface (Insidious: The Last Key), Mama (Mama), and now Mara (Mara).
From an early age, Javier was particularly interested in the demons and monsters. He often draws mastery to horror, even to Madrid to cultivate more painting skills.
While studying in Madrid, he discovered his passion for cinema and began making short films. However, colleagues and directors helped Javier realize that, with this appearance, he needed to go to the camera or not … charge.
"In the past, I did not expect to be born to act," Javier told B.P.
Javier's long and slender fingers are truly unique, horror movies don't need special effects
The turning point for Javier when he came to Texas in 2009 to promote the movie "Rec 2". Accidentally known Argentine director Andrés Muschietti, he offered to invite Javier to join "Mama."
Only one year later, Javier caught the eye of renowned director Guillermo del Toro as well as many other popular horror film makers.
Javier confidently affirmed, no matter how far the imaging technology went, he was not afraid of being replaced because "They are no different from how scary, animated films make viewers lose their fear."
He thought that the monsters that he played were scary and practically 100 times, it was tangible and could be touched.
Here are the most frightening monsters and demons in the silver screen, which we don't know is Javier:
The Conjuring 2
The Last Key
The Other Side Of The Door
The Walking Dead
