Bgcheck Background Checked


I was born and raised in Mexico City where I performed several times at the National Theatre in Mexico and won awards for Best Actor from institutions such as the National Autonomous University.

I was trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and by Actor´s Studio Member and Benicio del Toro´s coach René Pereyra.

I moved to Chicago 3 years ago to continue my acting career and have worked in theatre at the Goodman Theatre, Victory Gardens, Theatre Wit, Athenaeum, among others; I´ve done Netflix episodics and Voice Overs for Paw Patrol, Illinois Lottery, Sloan as well as commercials for TV. Currently, I am rehearsing a show for Teatro Vista, one of Chicago´s most renowned theatre companies.

I am proudly represented by Gray Talent Group and have been passionate about training actors for 10 years!

Vicki is an amazing voice teacher! She worked with me for a few months preparing me for a singing class in school. I had never worked on singing before and three months later, I feel completely prepared and excited to start this course. She is very patient and supportive, I highly recommend her as a voice teacher!!

So far, lessons with Ben have been VERY good (and productive! I'm naturally a reserved person, but He has gotten me to push beyond my comfort zone (that is "be louder"), which in retrospect has also helped me build my confidence in other areas. So at this point I look forward to having lessons, because I am growing in my understanding of how to use this God-given gift; a gift that's meant to be shared (not hidden away in silence).

"Julia was my college audition coach to get into acting school, and I am confident that she is the reason I got into the schools I did. I met with her on Skype once a week for about a year/year and half. She coached me on all of my monologues and even gave me acting coaching on songs. She helped me find almost all of my monologues, and was particularly helpful in coaching me on scansion and Shakespeare! Not only did she do all of this, but going through the college audition process herself and being trained at Juilliard, she prepared me for what to expect before I went in to my first audition. She is an absolutely wonderful teacher and would highly recommend her to anyone going through this experience. I am now a Sophomore Acting Major at Syracuse University which was ranked the number 8 acting school in the world this year. I also got into drama schools in Europe. Thank you Julia!! <3"

"With a background as an actor, writer, and director, Zach brings so much to the table. He truly understands the actor's process, offering invaluable guidance and insight, and knows how to bring out an actor's most genuine, connected, and truthful work. His approach is broadened and strengthened by the fact that he deeply understands the anatomy of a script, and can break down the beats of a scene like no one else. I cannot recommend Zach highly enough."

"Jeremy Kruse is a working actor and an excellent coach who showed me how fun and rewarding a career in film and television could be. Being a student of Jeremy's for almost two whole years, I looked to him as both a mentor and a friend. He taught everything from breaking down a script to being typecast for a role; even going as far to recreate the physical conditions of an audition space. Since departing from the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, he's been supportive of my own endeavors as a rising actor, both putting me in touch with a voiceover coach and encouraging me to take up improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade. I began working with Jeremy my first year of highschool and have witnessed firsthand how well his contagious enthusiasm and cultivated professionalism influences his pupils, no matter their age or level of experience. Now four years later, I can say with confidence that were it not for Jeremy Kruse and my class with him every Saturday for 80 weeks, I wouldn't be as devoted as I am today to pursuing acting as a career."
