On this occasion, Roberto Leal has welcomed the famous Víctor Elías, Ana Guerra, Aida Folch and Canco Rodríguez. Let's get to know the latter a little better.

Juan José Rodríguez is better known as Canco Rodríguez (Málaga, 1977), but above all he is more known for the character he played in the series Aída: the former drug addict Barajas and best friend of Luisma (Paco León).

This year, several actors from Aída wanted to celebrate the anniversary of the series on social media, a spin-off of Seven Lives that started in 2005 and continued until 2014. "18 years ago today, the series that changed my life premiered. "What I learned and lived through those years was incredible, but the greatest gift was finding a second family. Always grateful to the entire team that made this dream possible. And thanks to all the followers of the series who carried it along," Canco wrote in Instagram along with some photos.

Beyond television success, in those years Rodríguez met the dancer Marta Nogal, whom he married in 2017 and with whom he now has a son.

Before being Barajas, the actor had found small and sporadic roles in series such as Ala... Dina! o Tell me how it happened and in films like The Party (2003) or Isi/Disi: Amor a lo bestia (2004).

Once the Aída era closed, Canco Rodríguez landed a leading role in the renowned series Elite Corps and in the two film installments of Brain Drain and Operación Camarón. In cinema, he has already accumulated more than a dozen appearances in feature films.

Nothing resists him, not even theater and musicals: Today I can't get up, The Hole or The Jury are some of his main works on stage. In fact, his current stint on Pasapalabra coincides with the show El Rock
