UK-born Spanish Film Academy chair Yvonne Blake to be replaced
08 May 2018 @ 15:34

BRITISH-BORN Spanish Film Academy chairwoman Yvonne Blake will not return to her role following her stroke in January, and the job is likely to go to her current second-in-command.

Celebrated costume designer Ms Blake, 77, is expected to be out of action for some time as she recovers, meaning her deputy, Mariano Barroso, has announced she will be replaced next month.

She has been named Honorary Chairwoman, but the executive role will be subject to election on June 9.

The closing date for candidates' applications was on Friday (May 4), and only Barroso has put his name forward.
