Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Edgar Ramirez possessed the innate skill of being able to capture the grit and fierceness behind the characters he played onscreen. The Venezuelan-born actor first gained recognition in his home country by appearing on soap operas and in independent films. Soon after, Ramirez made waves stateside with hard-edged supporting roles in big-budget Hollywood features, including the action-biopic "Domino" (2005) and the spy thriller "The Bourne Ultimatum" (2007). In 2010, Ramirez turned in a star-making performance in the miniseries "Carlos" (Sundance Channel). His chilling and epic portrayal of the Venezuelan terrorist and murderer earned Ramirez rave reviews, and much like Antonio Banderas and Javier Bardem before him, cemented his place amongst some of the most riveting and fearless actors to come from Spanish-language cinema.
