Vincent Castellanos

Vincent Castellanos was born in Havana, Cuba, where he was raised by his grandparents and surrounded by a loving family. His world was turned upside down when he came to the U.S. as a child, to live with his parents. Left alone while his parents worked, he would ‘call’ people on the phone, having conversations with the characters from his imagination. Eventually he found dance, then acting, landing guest star parts on NYPD Blue, Six Feet Under, Twin Peak and other TV shows, as well as, the role of Mateo in “Anaconda” with Jon Voight, who inspired him to become an actor and Jennifer Lopez, who became a good friend. We talk about his 30 year career in entertainment as an actor, writer, director, how at the age of 50 he decided to go back to school to earn his certificate in Interpreting and Translation, and the unexpected joys of second acts.
