David Castillo was introduced to the entertainment industry by his parents, at the early age of seven. He had seen a breakfast commercial in which the children were driving a spaceship, something that made him want to be like them. His initial trajectory of commercial work led to appearances on several national TV series such as Hospital Central, Ana y los 7 and Manolito Gafotas (this last one based on Elvira Lindo’s homonymous character, where he played the role of Yihad for thirteen episodes). His jump to the film industry took place in Carlos Saura’s El Séptimo Día, and then came his great role in Miguel Albadalejo’s Cachorro as Bernardo, a nine-year-old boy who, by circumstances, ends up living with his homosexual uncle.
In 2005 David joined the original cast of Aida, a very successful prime time sit-com that aired for almost ten years, where he played the main character’s youngest son. Landing this role earned him great national popularity.
Later in 2011 he focused on developing a theater career, taking part in shows such as Münchhausen, Naturaleza muerta en una cuneta (2012-2013) or Emilia (2014). In 2015 he was chosen to be part of the Young National Classical Theater Company. One of the last theatre works for David is “Lulú”, that has had a big tour inside Spain, arriving to most of the main cities.
David is very keen on music, a passion that has led him to DJ in many private parties, clubs or festivals around Spain. His large and faithful group of fans follows him to these events and on his Social Media, a reason why many brands have shown interest on him.
He has participated in the filming of “Los Nuestro Dos”, the second season of the Telecinco miniseries and in the Antena 3 series “Amar es para Siempre” in its seventh season. He is part of the cast of the Amazon Prime series, El Cid, the first series of this Spanish production platform released at the end of 2020.
