American actor Valente Rodriguez has managed to amaze everyone through his brilliant acting performances. He entered the entertainment industry as a young man with a sheer interest in acting. He got his breakthrough role in 1993 through the movie Blood In, Blood Out—he played Frankie’s role.
Apart from that, he is also known for portraying Ernie’s role in George Lopez (2002-07) and Principal Camillo in McFarland (2015). Not only has he achieved fame through his acting, but also through his directing as well as producing talent.
Now, let’s have a look at Rodriguez’s Wikipedia, biography, family & personal life, as well as movies and TV shows credits!
Valente’s Wiki: Bio (Age), Family, Plus Height
Hailing from Edcouch, Texas, the well-known American actor was born in 1961. He is currently 59 years old but will turn 60 a few days later when he celebrates his birthday on the 14th of February. Also, his zodiac sign is Aquarius.
Although Rodriguez is a public figure, he has not disclosed any whereabouts about his family life. Nonetheless, as per Article Bio, it is known that his parents were migrant workers, he is the youngest of eight children, and he is of Mexican descent.
Likewise, his IMDb profile says that he attended the University of Texas-Pan American for his higher-level and acting studies.
However, apart from that, the actor is yet to give an insight into his parents’ and siblings’ details and his height and weight details.
Is Rodriguez Married? Wife?
Much like his family life details, The Red Queen star has not revealed anything related to his romantic life in the media and public.
The reason behind it might be his low-key social media presence. The actor hardly uses any other social media platforms besides Instagram. On his Instagram handle, too, he rarely shares pictures, and mainly, hasn’t shared pictures with any woman who can be regarded as his possible partner or wife.
As a result, it can be said that Rodriguez is possibly single and is yet to find a perfect partner with whom he can share the wedding vows.
Acting Career: Movies & TV Shows
After receiving financial help worth $2000 from the University of Texas-Pan American’s theater department head, Marian Monta, the now successful actor headed towards Los Angles to pursue his interest in acting.
In 1988, he finally made his debut in the acting sector through the movie Salsa, in which he appeared as Chuey. In the same year, he also guest-starred as Fred in The Golden Girls (TV Series) and as Raoul in Falcon Crest (TV Series).
Following that, he played some short roles in several TV shows and movies before landing on the role of Frankie in 1993’s Blood In, Blood Out. His performance in it amazed everyone, and his career received a boost.
Thereafter, he made his presence felt through his brilliant performances in several movies and TV series. Some acting projects credited to his name include 1994’s Beverly Hills, 90210, 1997’s Dharma & Greg, and 2001’s Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.
In 2002, he played in George Lopez as Ernie. The show and its cast members received a healthy response from the viewers and critics. As the show moved on to more seasons, Rodriguez even had to gain weight and go through weight loss to fit the character as required by the show’s storyline.
The show bid farewell in 2007, and all of its stars went on to star in other acting projects, including Valente. Since then, he has made his appearance in numerous TV series and movies.
Till now, he has more than 60 acting credits in his IMDb profile. The most recent ones are 2018’s A Dog & Pony Show, 2019’s Adam Ruins Everything, and 2020’s Bullet Ride.
Furthermore, the numbers will be increasing soon as he has joined the filming of Proof Sheet (Movie) and Dad Stop Embarrassing Me (TV Series). In these two acting projects, he will be portraying the role of Guillermo Benavides and Manny, respectively.
With such a flourishing career that started in the late 1980s, it must be sure that he has accumulated a hefty amount. Nothing can be said as of now, as the actor is yet to disclose his net worth.
