Veteran actor and director Terence Hill has started filming in the province this week just after receiving a lifetime achievement award from the Almería Western Film Festival.
Hill, who was born Mario Girotti in Italy, starred in a string of spaghetti westerns during the 60s and 70s, as well as Italian action films. Now 77, he is the director, writer and star of a new film to be shot in various locations throughout the province, including Almería city, Tabernas and Carboneras.
Hill first came to the province in 1967 to film ‘God Forgives…I Don’t’, directed by Giuzeppe Colizzi and co-starring Hill’s long-time film partner Bud Spencer, who died in January this year.
