20 Best Young Hispanic Actors (Male & Female)

Best Young Hispanic Actors

Coming from Spain, South or North America, these young Hispanic actors and actresses have been featured in many movies and tv series in the last few years. They have shown their extreme talent and their popularity is growing by the minute.

Some of them were born in Latin countries and some of them have Latin descent and heritage, but were born in the USA. What we certainly know is that we are going to be seeing them in many movies in the future and therefore we are bringing you a list of the best young Hispanic actors, both male and female.

Froy Gutierrez 

This 24-years old Texas born tv actor has been noticed in a few well accepted tv series where we remember him for his supporting roles. Teen Wolf, Light as a Feather and Cruel Summer are good introductions to his future and we will certainly be seeing more of him.

His newest project is the sequel to the 1990s hit fantasy comedy Hocus Pocus where the three Sanderson sisters have been mistakenly summoned to modern day Salem by three young women.

Lino Facioli

Lino Facioli was born in 2000 in Brazil where he has lived for 4 years before moving to London with both his parents. He is a very well-known face, thanks especially to Game of Thrones where he played the weird Robin Arryn.

His last project is the brilliant comedy Sex Education where he plays Dex Thompson, a clever, but awkward and at times dramatic kid. We will certainly be seeing more of him in the future.

Xolo Mariduena

Xolo Mariduena had a significant role in the heartwarming and educative tv series Parenthood where he played Joel, the adoptive son of Julia and Joel Braverman. We didn’t have an opportunity to follow his career for a few years after Parenthood, since he has made only some guest roles in not so famous shows.

But it was 2018 that brought our attention back to him when he got one of the leading roles in an extremely well accepted and internationally acclaimed tv series Cobra Kai where he plays Miguel Diaz.

Michael Cimino

This Las Vegas born might become a big Hollywood star due to his great talent which includes both acting and singing. His last project, Love, Victor, was extremely well received and it is an important tv series that deals with some of the current problems of today’s youth.

Cimino plays Victor, a new student in town who has many issues to deal with. He is facing problems at home, needs to adjust to his new school, city and colleagues and on top of all that, he is struggling with his sexual orientation.

Marcel Ruiz

Ruiz was born in Puerto Rico and has been in front of the cameras since his early childhood. He moved to Los Angeles when he was nine where he continued his acting career. He was a commercial star at home and Los Angeles gave him an opportunity to expand his acting skills.

He is 18 years old and he is just starting his movie career so we can’t find him in many achievements yet, but we can check what he has to say in the series One Day at a Time, a hilarious sitcom which follows three generations of the same Cuban-American family living under the same roof. 

Rhenzy Feliz

Rhenzy Feliz is an upcoming young actor, born in New York City and we have until now mostly seen him in some interesting tv series, such as Runaways and Teen Wolf. He plays the leading role in Runaways, an intriguing sci-fi adventure where a group of teenagers discovers their parents are dangerous villains in disguise.

They team up and decide to atone for their parents’ bad deeds and discover the secret of their origin. Feliz was also cast as a voice in the big cartoon hit Encanto where he plays Camilo Madrigal, the talented “theatre kid” with the ability to shapeshift.

Michael Garza

Even though Garza can’t be seen in too many tv-series and movies, the ones he has filmed have received a lot of praise. He played a minor role of Eddie in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and Frank Armstrong in the suspenseful Wayward Pines.

He plays Ramon Morales, one of the leading roles in an interesting horror movie Scary Stories to Tell in the dark which sequel is in post-production at the moment. Garza is a promising young actor we are going to be seeing a lot in the future. 

Nathan Arenas

Nathan Arenas is only 17 years old and is one of the most promising young actors on this list. He has so many excellent roles behind him that we can’t wait to see what he is preparing for in the future. Born in Los Angeles and fluent in both English and Spanish, Arenas is a true child star.

We have seen him in numerous tv series, mostly for children and one of his last projects was in the role of Hollywood in a beautiful drama Blue Miracle. 

Isaak Presley

This young actor born in 2002 has mostly starred in teenage and family comedy and dramas where he plays witty characters, such as in Fuller House and Stuck in the Middle. One of his most famous and best roles is in the mini-series Wet Hot American Summer where he played Kyle.

He starred among some of the most Hollywood actors and actresses and comedians, such as Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo and Amy Poehler. The series follows the story of counsellors and campers on their first day at Camp Firewood in 1981.

Anthony Gonzalez

Gonzalez’s most famous role until now is the one where we cannot see him. He is the voice of Miguel, the gifted guitar player in the magnificent cartoon Coco, one of the most beautiful in the past few years. He has since starred in a few supporting roles in some interesting tv series, such as The Last Ship and Shameless.

We are still waiting for his breakthrough and hope that if not on the screen, we will still have the opportunity to see his name on a list of voices in another beautiful animated movie. 

Rico Rodriguez

When you are a part of a cast of one of the most popular tv series of all time, you might find it hard to decide which way to go after the big lights fade. Rico Rodriguez is an example of a child star who was adored by many for more than ten years.

The role of the over analysing Miguel in the hilarious Modern Family has gained him the popularity he certainly didn’t expect. And even though he showed that he can act, we are still waiting for a movie or tv series title that will bring him back on screen.

Jharrel Jerome

This is the name we should remember since Jerome has brought us some very intriguing and interesting roles in Moonlight, When they See Us and Mr. Mercedes. He is an Afro-American Hispanic actor, born in the Bronx and we are certain that we will be seeing much more of him in the future.

Tony Revolori

Revolori was born in Anaheim, California as Anthony Quinonez and is without any doubt one of the most wanted young Hispanic actors nowadays. We remember him as Flash from Spider-Man: Homecoming, Jib in Dope and Zero in The Grand Budapest Hotel. 

His most anticipated project is the tv series Willow, where we are going to witness new adventures of one of our most beloved 1980s heroes, Willow, from Ron Howard’s masterpiece of the same name. 

Auli’i Cravalho

One of the most wanted and famous Hispanic actresses nowadays is this young woman who made her debut on screen as the voice of Moana in the beautiful Disney cartoon of the same name. After that, she made some interesting appearances in several tv series, such as The Power and Acting for a Cause.

We are waiting to see her in the 2023 drama musical about a group of teenagers in 19th century Germany. This is a coming-of-age drama where the main characters are going to have to deal with discovering their sexuality. 

Camila Mendes

Everyone who has seen maybe only a few episodes of Riverdale, one of the hottest teen series in the last few years, has definitely noticed this dark haired and brown eyed beauty. She is one of the actresses who completely stole the show. 

With her portrayal of Veronica Lodge, she showed that she is capable of playing both rude and stubborn characters, but also mild and cute teenagers with a strong personality. There is no doubt that we are going to see her in many upcoming movies and hopefully she will be given the trust to show her talent. 

Isabella Gomez

This gifted Colombian actress is one we are going to hear from in the future. She is mostly famous for her role of Elena Alvarez in One Day at a Time, but her performances in Head of the Class and Matador have also been noticed.

Anya Taylor-Joy

Probably the greatest star of all on this list is this excellent young actress who has shown us her talent in numerous tv-series and movies. If asked, you would probably never think of her being Hispanic, but she was raised in Argentina, speaking Spanish as her mother tongue.

Her most famous role is as Beth Harmon, the chess prodigy in the tv series Queen’s Gambit, but we also loved her in Peaky Blinders and Split. She is one of the most promising young actresses and we will certainly be hearing from her in the future.

Jenna Ortega

This beautiful 20-years old actress has played in several teen shows, but the tv series where she convinced us of her acting talent is the psychological thriller You. She was cast in the second season where she played Ellie Alves, a teenage girl who becomes involved in a friendly relationship with the main antagonist Joe.

Ortega has some new projects in post-production, in both movies and tv series and we are certain that she has chosen something intriguing and interesting as some of her previous shows.

Bella Thorne

Thorne is an American actress of Hispanic descent who is maybe more interesting for her private life than acting skills, but she has starred in some fun flicks, such as Midnight Sun and Blended. 

She has many upcoming projects which shows that she is wanted and we hope that there will be some gems among them. 

Cierra Ramirez

Ramirez played one of the leading roles and an important role in a groundbreaking and extremely powerful tv series The Fosters, where she played the spicy and passionate Mariana Adams Fosters, the adopted daughter of a caring gay couple Stef and Lena who decided to provide a home and shelter to a number of orphans.

Even though she hasn’t made any special appearance after that, besides replaying Mariana’s role in Good Trouble, a sort of a sequel to The Fosters, she is still one of the most interesting Hispanic actresses who we hope to see in some more upcoming movies and tv series.
