Gael García Bernal was born on November 30, 1978 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. He began his career starring in Mexican soap operas but left at the age of 19 to study at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London.
He considered acting as an “odd job profession” until Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu offered him a role in Amores Perros.
He has portrayed Argentine revolutionary Che Guevara twice, first in the TV miniseries Fidel and in The Motorcycle Diaries, for which he received a BAFTA nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role.
