Biography

Noriega was born in Santander, Spain. Eduardo is the youngest of seven brothers and the only one who decided to become an actor. While he was a child, he devoted himself to music. When he grew up he decided to leave his law degree and his love for music, and move to Madrid in order to become an actor. He acted in several short films of directors Alejandro Amenábar, Mateo Gil and Carlos Montero and he appeared in a short role in the well known Spanish film "Historias del Kronen". But it wasn't until "Tesis" when he had his first star role in a film that became one of most important successes in the history of Spanish films. Amenábar confessed in a T.T interview that he actually didn't want Eduardo in Tesis in the first place, thinking he was just a "pretty face", although his collaborators thought otherwise. In the end he called him again because he preferred him over the other actors in the casting. After that they became close friends, and worked on different projects together, such as the Spanish film hit, "Abre los Ojos" ("Vanilla Sky" in the Tom Cruise remake).

With Leonardo Sbaraglia, he has also acted in "Plata Quemada" ("Burnt Money") (2000), an Argentine film directed by Marcelo Piñeyro. Noriega went on to star in another Piñeyro film, "El Método" (2005), reuniting with "Plata Quemada" co-star Pablo Echarri. In 2001, he played the role of Jacinto in "The Devil's Backbone", a film directed by Guillermo del Toro and produced by Agustín and Pedro Almodóvar, about life in an orphanage in the last months of the Spanish Civil War. The film also stars Marisa Paredes and Federico Luppi.

In 2002, he starred as the main actor in "Novo", a French film directed by Jean-Pierre Limosin, where he appeared completely nude. In 2006, he played the role of Count of Guadalmedina in "Alatriste", the most expensive film in the history of Spanish cinema. Agustín Díaz Yanes directed the film, starring Viggo Mortensen, Javier Cámara, Ariadna Gil, Blanca Portillo, Juan Echanove, etc. "Alatriste" is based on five novels written by Arturo Pérez-Reverte. In 2008, he starred in Vantage Point, playing Enrique, a Spanish police officer assigned to protect the local mayor, and who plays an unintended central role in the investigation for the assassination of the American president.
