Venezuelan star Édgar Ramírez originally planned on being either a diplomat or a journalist. But he was always interested in performing as well and helped out a friend by appearing in a short film. Oscar-nominated screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga saw it and encouraged Edgar to make acting a career. Because his family traveled so much when he was a child, Ramírez speaks Spanish, English, German, French and Italian fluently, allowing him a lot of flexibility when picking films.
01 Quote: Edgar Ramirez
“The place to work for an actor in the world. I will be always very excited and interested in you know, exciting projects.
You know, regardless of where they are and in which language you shoot them and in which country you shoot them. For me it’s, you know, it’s about the characters and about the stories and the complexity of the stories.”
Though he’s frequently required to gain or lose weight for his roles. Edgar loves to keep himself in shape. Really having fun while starring in the updated remake of the crime thriller ‘Point Break’, which involved a lot of extreme sports. For the role, he learned to surf, rock climb, and snowboard.
In his spare time, the star has become a bit of a fashionista. Known for accentuating his sharp suits with high end accessories. Sadly, in 2014, his LA apartment was broken into, and the thieves made off with Ramirez’s very expensive watch collection. Luckily, he’s since bought new ones, and invested in a safe.
