Santiago Segura Silva (born July 17, 1965) is a Spanish film actor, scriptwriter, producer and director.

Santiago was born in the Carabanchel neighbourhood in Madrid. After studying Arts at the Complutense University of Madrid, he decided to pursue a career as a film-maker and in 1989 he directed the short Relatos de medianoche with a budget of 7000 pesetas (60 dollars). In 1992 he went on to direct his first professional short Evilio, and followed up with Perturbado in 1993.

He became most famous for Torrente: El brazo tonto de la ley (1998), which he both directed and acted in as lead character José Luis Torrente. The film brought him to stardom, its popularity leading to a sequel - Torrente 2: Misión en Marbella - and a computer game (Torrente: El juego) being produced. Torrente 2: Misión en Marbella earned €22,838,500 at the Spanish Box Office, becoming the highest grossing Spanish film of all time.

Torrente 3: El Protector, the third film in the series, is due out this year (September 30), and its advertising campaign parodies Batman Begins, using the phrase Torrente Acabao (which literally means "Torrente Finished").

He has since made his way into American culture by making appearances in movies such as Hellboy, Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London and Blade 2.
