Juan García Tienda in Viridiana (1961)
Juan García Tienda was a small-part actor, active in Spanish films at least from the mid-1950's to the early-1960's.

He has 5 known credited roles, in one of which he is identified with a photo credit, confirming his identity. He also has his best-known role, curiously uncredited, in Luis Buñuel's classic, Viridiana. On his IMDb profile his name is mis-spelled as "Tiendra".

No biographical details are currently known.

With so few known roles and those spread out over 7 years, it would seem possible that he may also be a generico. He has very distinctive features - wild eyes with a large mole between them, bad teeth, unkempt receding hair and in most of the films I've seen he always gives rather animated, crazed performances.

Filmography

Mañana cuando amanezca (1955) credited as "Juan Ga. Tienda", as Gregor.

Unfortunately only currently available in very poor quality, but it at least confirms his role and credit.

Viridiana (1961) as José, the leper.

This was Juan's biggest role and certainly the most famous film he appeared in, but he is curiously and rather unfairly uncredited (other roles of equal size are). It is also his most restrained performance, though you wouldn't know it from the images. As for the wedding veil and corset, your guess is as good as mine!
