Héctor Pastor Bidonde (2 March 1937 – 19 January 2024) was an Argentine actor.

Born in La Plata, he was a shift worker in a tool and dye factory when, in 1954, he was offered a part in Carlos P. Cabral's play Amarretes. He was accepted in the Buenos Aires Province Comedy, in 1964, and performed extensively in the theatre before being offered his first film role in Mario David's La rabona (1978).[1]

Numerous supporting roles followed, among them as that of an unhappily married husband in María Luisa Bemberg's Momentos (1981) and of a hard-line chief of police in Roberto Denis' Luna Caliente (1985). His roles for director Héctor Olivera as the scheming Suprino in Funny Dirty Little War (1983) and as Dr. Falcone, the father of a student abducted by the police in the fact-based Night of the Pencils (1986) made him prominent in Argentine film.[2]

Bidonde returned to the theatre and to Argentine public television in subsequent years. Among his notable later film performances was one in Daniel Barone's Alma mía (1999).[3] Politically active in left-wing politics in Argentina, Bidonde was elected to the Legislature of the City of Buenos Aires in 2003 and was Socialist Workers' Movement candidate Vilma Ripoll's running mate for the 2007 presidential election.[1]

Bidonde died on 19 January 2024, at the age of 86.[4]
