Joaquin is definitely a part of the second group. He’s always loved performing and it’s the only thing he’s ever wanted to do.
2. He Has Theater Experience
Joaquin’s on-screen work is what most people know him for, but it’s the stage that truly has his heart. He told Suavv, “I am 100% a stage actor. I’ve always been a theater actor, since I was young, it has always been my passion. It’s cathartic, therapeutic, it has a conscience and a key role in our history. And, it’s fun! I got involved in film and TV very late in life, at age 38 was my first movie, which came out of people knowing I was a stage actor. I said yes just out of curiosity, and then suddenly, years later I’ve been in over 40 films and tv shows.”
3. He Loves Being At The Beach
Joaquin works very hard, but he also makes time for fun. When he isn’t busy working, he enjoys being outdoors and soaking up the sun. He particularly loves hanging out by the water and the beach is one of his favorite places to hang out. Luckily for him, Mexico has no shortage of beautiful beaches.
4. He Has Almost 100 On-Screen Credits
Even though Joaquin got a late start to his on-screen career, he has certainly made up for lost time. Since making his on-screen debut in 2002 he has managed to get 90 credits. At the rate he’s going, there’s a very good chance he’ll reach 100 in just a few short years.
5. He Loves A Good Script

6. He’s A Fairly Private Person

7. He’s A Voice Actor

8. He Looks Forward To Roles That Don’t Perpetuate Stereotypes
When most actors think of their dream role, they automatically envision a specific character or genre. For Joaquin, his dream opportunity looks a little bit different. During his interview with Suavv he said, “I do look forward to a meaningful role from Hollywood that breaks away entirely from stereotypes. A role that transcends any pre-conceived notions about Mexicans and Latinos and is valued for its story and complexities, not for what it contributes to a narrow view of what being a Mexican is. I have had those in Mexico, but in the US I would love to be a part of a film that tells a fascinating story about a character that just so happens to be Mexican and is treated with respect and without stereotypes.”
