Rosa Romero has enjoyed an ongoing collaboration with Hyde Park on Hudson director Roger Michell and producer Kevin Loader’s Free Range Films; she was previously line producer on the team’s acclaimed movies Venus, Enduring Love, and The Mother. Also for Mr. Loader, she was line producer on Armando Iannucci’s In the Loop, Julian Jarrold’s Brideshead Revisited, Andrea Arnold’s Wuthering Heights, and Alex de la Iglesia’s The Oxford Murders. The latter earned her a Goya Award (Spain’s Oscars equivalent) for Best Production Supervision.
Ms. Romero speaks five different languages. She was born in Barcelona, where she began her production career with the Catalan television channel TV3. She subsequently produced short films and documentaries. Her first narrative feature as producer, Boom Boom, directed by Rosa Vergés, won the Goya Award for Best First Film. She later reteamed with Ms. Vergés on Souvenir, after producing Marion Hänsel’s Sur la terre comme au ciel (a.k.a. Between Heaven and Earth) and Félix Rotaeta’s Chatarra, both starring Carmen Maura.
After relocating to the U.K., she worked as production and/or location manager on such features as Phil Davis’ I.D., Jake Scott’s Plunkett & Macleane, and Mike Figgis’ Hotel (on-site in Venice).
In addition to the movies previously mentioned, Ms. Romero’s features as line producer include Michael Winterbottom’s Code 46; Christopher Smith’s Severance; Dan Wilde’s Alpha Male, starring Jennifer Ehle and Danny Huston; Ben Palmer’s sleeper hit The Inbetweeners Movie; Michael Radford’s La mula [The Mule], and, currently in production, Kevin Macdonald’s How I Live Now, starring Saoirse Ronan.
