BIOGRAPHY OF RAYMOND CRUZ
Raymond Cruz, was born on July 9, 1961 in Los Angeles, California. Of Mexican descent, Raymond spends his adolescence in a community where crime and gang rivalry are the order of the day. The interest in American literature helps him to avoid delinquency, but the reality in which he grows up will always be part of his being, so much so that his most successful characters will trace the traits of the criminal gangs he came into contact with as a child. .
His interest in acting developed at school age. While on a trip to see the classic “To Kill A Mocking Bird“, Cruz decides to take theater lessons. The first film role will then come in 1987, with the comedy At the service of the heiress she offers herself. In 1992 he acted alongside stars of the caliber of Steven Seagal is Tommy Lee Jones in the cult film Trap on the high seas and, again in the same year, he is in the cast of Blood pact, a dramatic film that follows the stories of three Latin Americans struggling with problems related to drugs, criminal gangs and prison, realities that somehow evoke the vicissitudes experienced in childhood.
After taking part in the action movie Under the sign of danger (1994), directed by Phillip Noyce, in 1996 he gets secondary roles in two successful films: Something personal, signed by Jon Avnet, is The hour of violence, directed by Robert Mandel. The following year he is in the cast of the fourth film (after those of Ridley Scott,;James Cameron is David Fincher) dedicated to being xenomorphic Alien: cloning, signed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Other minor roles on the big and small screen followed, but the real turning point in Cruz’s career came in 2005, when he joined one of the most watched series in American cable history: The closer.
In the crime drama, the Mexican-born actor plays street gang lieutenant Julio Sanchez, a role he will keep until 2012. Also in 2005, he returns to the cinema with Havoc – Out of control, the film by Barbara Kopple in which, once again, we see Raymond dealing with a gang of drug traffickers. In 2012, Cruz returns to once again don the role of detective Sanchez, in the spin-off of Closer Major Crimes, division of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Busy with the TV series until 2018, Raymond will return to theaters again with the horror-thriller La Llorona – The Tears of Evil (2018). Directorial debut of Michael Chaves, follows the story of a social worker sucked into the realm of the supernatural.
