WHO IS EDUARDO VERÁSTEGUI?
Not only has Eduardo Verástegui appeared on television, film & the stage, he has also worked behind the camera, producing award-winning films. Eduardo possesses a diverse range of creative talents, which he has showcased across the board in entertainment.
Born and raised in northern Mexico, Eduardo left home for Mexico City at the age of 18 to pursue a career in entertainment. Following many modelling engagements with prominent fashion organisations such as Versace and Calvin Klein, he toured the world with Latin pop sensation Kairo and is an acclaimed solo artist.
In 1997, he began acting in Mexican soap operas, and also appeared in several Spanish-speaking feature-length movies and music videos such as Jennifer Lopez’s Ain’t It Funny. He followed this success landing the lead role of Thomas Fuentes in Twentieth Century Fox’s film Chasing Papi. Additional credits include CSI:Miami and Charmed. He most recently starred in For Greater Glory: The True Story of Cristiada.
Voted as one of the “most beautiful people in the world” and cited as “the fastest rising Latino star”, Eduardo changed his mind about his celebrity lifestyle after he discovered it was making him unhappy.
After Chasing Papi, Eduardo made the conscious decision to move away from his heart-throb image and concentrate on film roles which respect both men and women. “I had twelve years of a successful career under my belt, but I only experienced emptiness, lies and illusions until now,” he said. Turning down roles in movies which conflicted with his beliefs he co-founded the production company Metanoia Films, the Greek word for “conversion”. His first feature film, Bella, which he produced and starred in, won the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival’s People’s Choice Award.
