Despite being relatively new in the industry, Diego Tinoco stands out as one fast-rising actor currently having a smooth ride in Hollywood. Tinoco is not only talented, but he is also handsome, a role model to many budding actors, as well as someone whose wide range of abilities promises a long and productive career in Hollywood. 2015 was the year the actor formally launched his acting career. Even though his resume features more supporting roles, he has been quite impressive on the screen. Being someone who is ready to learn from his superiors and grow his game, Diego’s major acting influences include Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Leonardo Dicaprio, and Al Pacino. He is already looking forward to sharing screen time with these Hollywood elites and maybe hang out with them for some time.
Diego Tinoco’s Bio (Age & Ethnicity)
Since Diego became a household name, he hasn’t really spoken much about his family background and personal life. Nevertheless, some sources reported that the actor was born on the 25th day of November 1997, in Anaheim, California, to Quito (mother) and Borrelia Michoacan (father). As regards his ethnicity, he is a Latino (half Mexican on his father’s side) and (half Columbian on his mother’s side). The actor has an elder brother whose name is yet to be disclosed publicly.
Currently, information about the names of the academic institutions he passed through are unavailable, however, Tinoco once shared that the best time of his life was in his 8th grade. In his younger age, the actor was diagnosed with vitiligo and he would often get teased because of his patchy skin. Fortunately, the disease disappeared as he grew up.
Outside the busy streets of Hollywood, Diego Tinoco is equally active on social networking outlets such as Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and Facebook. He boasts thousands of followers on these platforms.
Career as a TV Actor
Making a living through acting was not something Diego Tinoco wanted to delve into as a child. Despite boasting an impressive acting resume, he still aspires to become a successful musician sometime in the future. Tinoco reportedly developed a strong interest and passion for acting after he came across actor Leonardo DiCaprio on the screen, who inspired him to pursue a career in the movie industry.
Today, the American actor’s career is on the upward side and there are no signs he is ready to quit or switch careers. Diego Tinoco has had roles in the following Hollywood productions as On My Block (2018, as Cesar Diaz), Teen Wolf (2016, Mateo), Welcome to Valhalla (2017, as Diego), Drizzle of Hope (2015, as Marco).
To date, the Latino screen actor is best known for his role in the Netflix exclusive teen comedy-drama series, On My Block, wherein he played Cesar, a member of the California gang, Los Santos, who began the series as a reluctant new member of the gang although the group tried to relieve him of duties but failed. Diego’s character’s outer and inner conflict about his family ties is the film’s primary obstacle.
Before the actor scored a role in the show, he worked with restaurants and Postmates (an American logistics firm that runs a network of couriers who deliver goods locally) for about seven months.
Diego could possibly be single as information regarding his love life is missing on the map. Although he doesn’t give his fans the impression that he is dating any girl in real life, he is friends with Sierra Capri, his On My Block co-star and on-screen girlfriend and their fans would love to see them become a real-life couple.
According to unverified sources, Diego Tinoco was previously in a relationship before he moved down to Los Angeles to give his acting career a chase. He is said to have called off the relationship to focus more on his growing career.
Although Diego Tinoco is a Latino, the hunk doesn’t really have blue eyes and blonde hair but that has never stopped his shine. The actor, who has an athletic build is 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighs 60 kilograms in body mass. He sports dark brown eyes and black hair.
