If you’ve watched the latest Netflix series On My Block, you should be familiar with the name Jason Genao. He acted as that annoying Mexican smarty-pants who loves to show off simply because he knows a little plus and minus. You probably know him better as Ruby Martinez.
Jason Genao Bio (Age)
At first, he had a bit of struggle with the name thing. He didn’t know which to settle for between ‘Jayson’ and ‘Jason’. In fact, a few of his earlier projects like Ladrones were accredited to Jayson in 2015. Afterwards, he made up his mind and stuck to Jason. So, we will start by addressing him by his chosen name “Jason Genao” which is pronounced “Jay-son Ja-nay-oh”.
The On My Block actor was born on the 3rd of July, 1996 and is of Dominican-American descent. He was raised in Jersey City, New Jersey but currently lives in Los Angeles, California, United States. Jason schooled at William L. Dickson High School and speaks English, Spanish and French fluently.
Jason Genao has always wished to become an actor, it was his childhood dream and he acted in a lot of school plays while in high school. However, for reasons best known to him, he stayed away from the camera for a while. It all changed after he watched a French movie, his passion was reignited. Jason soon kicked off his career with Ladrones. Even after he joined the cast, Jason desired to do more than the ordinary. Thus, he enrolled in an acting school in 2016.
After making his first screen appearance in 2015 as Wiliams Reeves in Ladrones, he went on to have his debut TV show in Law & Order. This was in 2016. From there, he moved on to the French film La Vie en Rose. The big break came still in 2016 with the Netflix musical drama, The Get Down. His performance in that movie was jaw-dropping. Thereafter, Jason appeared in the action film Logan in 2017 which massively increased his fan base. That’s not all, he featured in the TV program Noches on Platanito then, the famous On My Block in March 2018.
