Amaury Nolasco : Fernando Sucre
Date Of Birth: December 24th, 1970 Hometown: Puerto Rico
Amaury Nolasco, a native of Puerto Rico, studied biology as a full-time student at the University of Puerto Rico. Initially he intended to enroll in medical school and become a doctor, but he was approached by a director and immediately cast in his first television commercial. After several acting gigs, Nolasco moved to New York, where he trained at the American British Dramatic Arts School. Classically trained in Shakespearean drama, the young actor focused on dialect technique, character work and stage presence.
Shortly thereafter, Nolasco began guest-starring on hit television shows such as “Arli$$,” “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “ER.” His additional television credits include guest-starring roles on “George Lopez,” “Eve” and “CSI: NY.” Nolasco garnered his first supporting role in a studio film as “Orange Julius” in the hit sequel “2 Fast 2 Furious,” bringing charm to the role as the rival who challenges Paul Walker’s character in the opening car race. Nolasco went on to co-star opposite Bernie Mac in “Mr. 3000” and co-starred in the comedy “The Benchwarmers” opposite Rob Schneider and David Spade.
This summer Nolasco co-starred in director Michael Bay’s live-action blockbuster “Transformers” and completed production on the upcoming crime drama “The Night Watchmen,” opposite Keanu Reeves, Forest Whitaker and Hugh Laurie.
When not filming in Dallas, Nolasco lives in Los Angeles.
