SPANISH actor Antonio Banderas delighted fans in a new trailer for his upcoming role in season two of National Geographic’s Emmy-nominated series, Genius.  

Telling the story of one of Spain’s greatest artists, Pablo Picasso, the 57-year-old filmstar sports a silver crop as he takes on the role from 40s onwards in the artist’s life.

In one scene during his training he is told ‘you have talent, but no discipline’ by a mentor.

Speaking at a conference in Budapest, where it is being filmed he said he’s pleased with the serious approach to the artist’s life, including his womanising antics.

“So far we are very happy, working hard but we have a long way to go,” said Banderas, before adding, “If I don’t portray him properly, I may not be able to go back to my hometown.”

The Picasso mini-series debuts on April 24.
