Ramón Rodríguez’s Age, Ethnicity, and Background
Ramón Rodríguez is a 43-year-old actor born in Puerto Rico and raised in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. He went to the New York City Lab School for Collaborative Studies before transferring to The Leelanau School in Michigan. Before moving to New York University, where he received his degree in sports marketing, he played basketball at Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia for two years.
In an interview with People, the star opened up about how he became an actor, a profession he didn’t think was initially for him. He said, “I didn’t really decide to become an actor. It kind of happened through basketball. I had a friend of mine… he invited me to this Nike competition where you had to do tricks, so I went to the competition because they were giving away free sneakers. That was kind of exciting. I ended up winning this tricks competition, and Nike asked me to be a part of their commercials and a bunch of spots, and that put me in front of the camera. Then I started doing other roles in TV and films, then I started taking classes….. to really appreciate the craft, and then I fell in love with it.”
Since 2001 Ramón has also been in love with Salsa dancing which was introduced to him by his mother. He received his training in Salsa dancing from a famous Latin Dance company in New York named Abakuá. Ramón started his acting career in 2005 when he appeared in a direct-to-video film ‘Carlito’s Way: Rise to Power.’ Since then, the actor has starred in various productions such as ‘The Wire’, ‘Day Break’, and ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,’ ‘Pride and Glory’, ‘Surfer, Dude’, ‘The Taking of Pelham 123’, and ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’ and others.
