Édgar Ramírez Arellano was born Mar. 25, 1977 in San Cristóbal, Táchira, Venezuela. During his tenure at Andrés Bello Catholic University, Ramírez explored what would become his two passions in life: journalism and acting. Following graduation in 1999, Ramírez worked for the grassroots organization Dale al Voto, which motorized young people in Venezuela to vote. Soon enough, however, Ramírez turned his attention to his other dream and began acting professionally. His first recurring role came with the telenovela "Cosita rica" (Venevisión 2003-04), on which he played the character Cacique Chacón. From there, he appeared in action-dramas and thrillers like "A Dot and a Line" (2004), "Domina" (2005), and "El Don" (2006) before making his Hollywood debut with a small part in "The Bourne Ultimatum" (2007). The role served as a stepping stone for more high-profile productions, namely Steven Soderbergh's "Che: Part One" (2008) and Olivier Assayas' "Carlos" (2010), for which Ramírez earned multiple nominations. He continued on to appear in American films like the fantasy epic "Wrath of the Titans" (2012) and the Academy Award-nominated political drama "Zero Dark Thirty" (2012). Around the same time, Ramírez began landing starring roles, such as in the romantic drama "An Open Heart" (2012), the biography film "The Liberator" (2013), and the action-thriller remake "Point Break" (2015). His work at the forefront of Hollywood continued from there, with projects like "Joy" (2015), "The Girl on the Train" (2016), "Gold" (2016), and "Bright" (2017), the lot of which paired him with major stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Emily Blunt, Matthew McConaughey, and Will Smith. Next, Ramírez landed the central role in the second season of Ryan Murphy's anthology series "American Crime Story" (FX 2016-), which focused on the murder of iconic fashion designer Gianni Versace. Ramírez was nominated for an Emmy for the part.
