Stevan’s career as an actor is well documented with the actor having a good number of films and TV series to his name, not the least of which is the well-known TV series titled Control Z. His role in the aforementioned series is what the Mexican actor is best known for but this article explores the lesser-known facts about the actor’s life and career in general.
Yankel Stevan was Born in the Mid 1990s
Yankel Stevan was born Yankel Jacobi Stevan Salido on October 25, 1995. His birth sign is Libra while his birthplace is Distrito Federal, Mexico City, Mexico. Given the fact that he was born in Mexico, Yankel Stevan enjoys all the rights, privileges, and responsibilities of a Mexican citizen.
The young Mexican actor belongs to the Hispanic ethnic group and was born to a Mexican couple named Enrique Stevan and Aldara Salido. Aside from the identity of his father, there isn’t much to write about the Mexican model’s father, including his source of income.
His mother on the other hand is an equally well-known Mexican model whose career as a model includes working with several reputable publications both in Mexico and abroad. Yankel Stevan is most likely the only child of his parents as there is no information with regards to any sibling, living or dead.
The actor’s family moved to Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico when he was still very young and he proceeded to spend the majority of his childhood there. Details of Yankel Stevan’s formal education background is limited to the fact that he graduated from an as yet unidentified local high school in Mexico.
Some publications claim that he is a college graduate but there is yet no record to support the fact.
Yankel Took the Modeling Route to Acting
These days, the Mexican actor is gaining so much worldwide popularity for his role as Raúl in the popular Netflix-owned TV series titled Control Z. However, like a good number of other universally recognized actors in the world today, Yenkel Stevan took a route that has become quite well-traveled in the entertainment industry.

This paved the way for his first major TV series role when he appeared as Santiago in 6 episodes of Sincroniá in 2017.
Yankel Stevan’s acting career is still young and has been primarily restricted to Mexican Telenovelas but if the awesome positive feedback he has been receiving for his role as Raúl in the popular Netflix series Control Z is anything to go by, it most certainly won’t take long for him to get international recognition and begin collaborating with other international actors and actresses.
