Early life[edit] Molina was born in Paddington, London. His father, Esteban Molina, was a Spanish immigrant from Madrid
Madrid
who worked as a waiter and chauffeur.[1] His mother, Giovanna (née Bonelli), was an Italian house-keeper who cleaned rooms in a hotel and worked as a cook.[2][3] Molina grew up in a working class district in Notting Hill[4] that was inhabited by many other immigrant families.[5] Molina decided to become an actor after seeing Spartacus at the age of nine, and attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.[6] He also auditioned and was accepted as a member of National Youth Theatre. Career[edit] Molina appeared with Leonard Rossiter in the sitcom The Losers (1978).[7] Molina made his film debut with a minor role in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) as Indiana Jones' ill-fated guide, Satipo, during its iconic opening sequence. However, his big break came with Letter to Brezhnev (1985), which he followed with a starring role in Prick Up Your Ears (1987), playing Joe Orton's lover (and eventual murderer) Kenneth Halliwell. He was originally cast as Arnold Rimmer
Arnold Rimmer
in the TV sitcom Red Dwarf, but was replaced by Chris Barrie. In the early 1990s, Molina was a ubiquitous presence on British television, with his highest profile role being the lead in the first two series of El C.I.D.
El C.I.D.
Subsequent film roles included Species, Dudley Do-Right, Chocolat, Not Without My Daughter and Enchanted April. With a mid-western American accent, Molina starred alongside Betty White
Betty White
in the US television series Ladies Man, which ran from 1999–2001. He has worked twice with Paul Thomas Anderson, first in Boogie Nights (1997) and then Magnolia (1999). Molina gained wide recognition for his portrayal of Diego Rivera

and SAG award nominations. He played himself alongside Steve Coogan

in Coffee and Cigarettes (2003) and gained further commercial recognition when he portrayed the villain Doctor Octopus

in Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 2
(2004), which became one of the highest-grossing films of that year. For the latter, Molina was nominated for a Satellite award as Best Supporting Actor. He reprised his role in the video game adaption. In 2006, Molina portrayed Touchstone in Kenneth Branagh's film version of Shakespeare's As You Like It
As You Like It
and appeared in Ron Howard's adaptation of The Da Vinci Code. Molina provided the voice of the villain Ares in the 2009 animated film Wonder Woman.[8] Molina's stage work has included two major Royal National Theatre productions, Tennessee Williams' The Night of the Iguana (as Shannon) and David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow (as Fox). In his Broadway debut, Molina performed in Yasmina Reza's Tony Award-winning play 'Art', for which he received a Tony nomination in 1998. In 2004, Molina returned to the stage, starring as Tevye in the Broadway production of Fiddler on the Roof. For his performance he once again received a Tony Award nomination, this time for Best Actor in a Musical. Molina received his third Tony Award nomination for Red in 2010, for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play. In 2007, Molina narrated a 17-part original audiobook for Audible.com called The Chopin Manuscript. This serialized novel was written by a team of 15 best-selling thriller writers, including Jeffery Deaver, Lee Child, Joseph Finder
Joseph Finder
and Lisa Scottoline. The novel won the 2008 Audiobook Of The Year Award form Audio Publishers Association.[9] On 1 April 2010, he opened at Broadway's John Golden Theatre

and Sheik Amar from Prince of Persia.[citation needed] In July 2010, it was announced that Molina had joined the cast of Law & Order: LA as Deputy District Attorney Morales.[12] He previously guest-starred in a two-part crossover in 2005 in two other Law & Order franchise shows, Law & Order: Special

Victims Unit and Law & Order: Trial by Jury. Molina is a patron of the performing arts group Theatretrain. Molina is also a longtime member of the Los Angeles
Los Angeles
theatre company The New American Theatre, formerly known as Circus Theatricals, where he often teaches Shakespeare
Shakespeare
and Scene Study along with the company's artistic director Jack Stehlin. Molina stated in an interview in 2013 that he owes his stage and film career to the Indiana Jones
Indiana Jones
series. "I'm very, very proud of that, I have to admit I didn't think at the time, 'Oh, this is going to go down in movie history.' I'd never been in front of a camera before," Molina said about his short but memorable appearance in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Molina recalls getting the job as a "gift from God" and goes on to say "I've publicly thanked Steven many, many times. That job saved my bacon, in more ways than one." About his now famous line in the film Molina stated that "I've never had a problem with people coming up to me about it. They'll shout that line to me, 'Throw me the idol, I'll throw you the whip!' I'm delighted that people still remember it."[13] Personal life[edit] He married actress Jill Gascoine in 1986 in Tower Hamlets, London.[14] He has a daughter, London
London
based photographer Rachel Molina (born 1980), from a previous relationship, and two stepsons, from Gascoine's first marriage. He is also a grandfather. Molina resides in Los Angeles, California, and announced in 2004 that he had become a U.S. citizen.[15] He is fluent in English, Spanish and Italian. In addition to acting, Molina is an Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) advocate. He donates towards AIDS

concludes with a magnificent set-piece in which Doctor Octopus finally manages to gain control of his tentacles, drowning himself along with the fusion reactor in the Hudson River. However, during a scene set at the Daily Bugle in Spider-Man 3, there's a newspaper front page mounted on J. Jonah Jameson's wall which reads "Doc Ock still at large", accompanied by the tagline, "Police expand manhunt." At the time of Spider-Man 3's release, many took this as a hint that, somehow, perhaps Doc Ock had survived his cataclysmic fate at the end of the movie. The more likely reality is that it's just a smart way to reference the events of the previous movie and keep them in our mind, as well as the fact that only Spidey and MJ are truly aware that he's dead: to the authorities, he's still missing and/or at large. Plus, it reinforces how unscrupulous Jameson is, clinging desperately to the Doc Ock story to sell more newspapers. It's still a fun easter egg whatever the explanation, though. ^ Goldberg, Lesley (May 5, 2016). "Ryan Murphy Anthology 'Feud,' Starring Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon, Set at FX".
