Iñaki Godoy’s Age and Background
Born on August 25, 2003, to Edin and Katy Godoy, Iñaki’s experiential childhood can be credited to the unencumbered support lent by his parents. The 20-year-old was raised to embrace all aspects of his Mexican heritage. With a flair for engaging and speaking from a young age, Iñaki’s mother enrolled him in different sports to quench his curiosity.
While the television personality excelled on the soccer field, his parents soon discerned that his talent wouldn’t suffice there. At age four, Iñaki’s mother signed him up to join a musical theatre for children called Stage Company. This decision ultimately impacted the trajectory of his profession and life. Brought up in Mexico City with his younger sister, Mia, Iñaki’s youth had been full of adventures.
Iñaki Godoy’s Profession
Soon after Iñaki was enrolled in musical theatre, he realized his true passions were acting and the performing arts. After improvising in his first production of ‘Alice in Wonderland,’ he longed to feel the thrill of the craft repeatedly. By nine, the star knew that he wanted to pursue acting professionally. With the support and encouragement of his parents, Iñaki connected with his teachers and managed to gain the right direction to kickstart his career. Soon after following up with social media sites and auditions, he secured a role in the television show, ‘Cocina De Hacienda.’ While his first gig brought the excitement and promise of pursuing acting professionally, it also included the harsh and tiresome conditions of working on a set.
Despite the rigorous early hours and biting cold that set the tone for his shooting days, Iñaki was hooked. Even though the young actor had to drive out to the city’s outskirts and wait in the car for lack of a trailer, he still found the process fascinating and was engorged in the craft even more. While his sheer dedication made it impossible for him to resist the profession, the filmmaking process kept Iñaki on the hook. In addition to acting and expressing, learning new things and making friends became integral to his decision to pursue a career in the industry. Iñaki also attended a camp called Pali Adventures in Southern California. Here, he honed his skills in a myriad of artistic pursuits.
Not just this, the camp also gave the young actor the platform to showcase his skills as an improv expert. By age eleven, he was cast in a recurring role in ‘La Querida Del Centauro.’ Throughout the show’s filming, Iñaki made lifelong friendships and understood how filmmaking can give people a family. In addition to this, he appeared on ‘Go Youth,’ ‘MexZombies,’ and ‘No Abras La Puerta.’
While Iñaki maintained his skills in front of the camera, he also hoped to expand his portfolio. During this time, he started writing and directing and even managed to produce two short films, ‘Blinded’ and ‘Casiarte.’ Soon after, he secured pivotal roles in ‘Who Killed Sara’ and ‘The Imperfects.’ During the pandemic, Iñaki was able to work on other opportunities, too. He ended up taking screenwriting workshops at SOCAPA and managed to pen several scripts. Iñaki’s casting in ‘One Piece’ has now propelled him to explore different aspects of his abilities and skills.
Is Iñaki Godoy Dating Anyone?
While his cogent skills in acting and filmmaking have supplied him with enough passion and determination, they have also made Iñaki’s schedule rigid and full. As such, the young actor finds it difficult to date. So, as far as we can tell, Iñaki is currently single. He is often busy with work commitments and other engagements to exponentiate his career. Therefore, he has little time to devote to dating.
When Iñaki’s schedule is not lined up, he likes to become proficient in other things. The actor receives singing training and even enjoys learning the piano. Not just this, Iñaki is highly active. Recently, the television star took an 80-day trip across the Caribbean with his sister, Mia. So, even though Iñaki’s schedule permits him little time to explore a romantic relationship, it is apparent that the actor is still setting several milestones!
