Rosa María Sardá has passed away in Barcelona at the age of 78, as reported by the Film Academy. The Catalan has not been able to win the battle against the disease. His resume is engraved with gold letters for having been able to win two Goya Awards for Best Supporting Actress, for ‘Sin shame’ and ‘Why do they call it love when they mean sex?’ In addition, he received in 2010 the Academy Gold Medal. His connection with the awards for the seventh Spanish art was total, among other things because he had presented them up to five times.

At first he said he was controlled, but he was very pessimistic about his evolution: «Cancer is invincibleIt is not a fight, it is a matter of those who are in charge having more or less sense when scheduling certain medications or whatever, but it is not a ‘match’ to see who wins, because cancer always wins ». Only a month and a half after these words he has passed away.

The interpreter was never afraid of death and faced the death with the acid humor that characterized her, as she demonstrated in a talk with ‘El País’: «When I wrote this I did not know that I would be condemned to die of cancer. But the bug is still there, I have a new treatment, but I am very tired. Next year I will see what I do. Maybe I stop the medication and that it lasts whatever, after all, I’m 78 years old. The only thing left for me to do is die. But as the last sentence of my book says, complicado how complicated it is to die in the first world. And how expensive.
