Meet Javier Botet The Man Whose Rare Genetic Condition Has Made Him One Of The Most Sought After Actors In Horror

If the brilliance of special effects has been a gift to the horror film genre – Spanish actor Javier Botet has been an even greater gift. Due to a rare childhood genetic condition, the actor does not require computer processing to bring nightmarish monsters to life, just make-up.

Botet was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome, at the age of six, which caused him to grow 6 feet, 6 inches, but weigh in at a mere 120 pounds. In addition to his lanky stature, the condition affects his limbs and fingers, which are longer than average and have the ability to contort in various ways. Botet’s diagnoses proved to be a gift for the aspiring actor and science fiction/ supernatural fan. He has now become a household name for Hollywood horror productions such as Slender Man (Slender Man), xenomorph (Alien: Covenant), Crooked Man (The Conjuring 2), Faceless Man (The Crucifixion), Keyface (Insidious: The Last Key), Mama (Mama), and now Mara (Mara), to name a few.
