Biography and career[edit | edit source]
Gabriel Rodriguez was born in Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela. After spending part of his childhood in South America, his family settled in the United States. Rodriguez discovered his interest in acting while interviewing for a U.S. Border Patrol position. When asked how he would handle certain situations, he started acting out the scenario instead of answering, which the interviewer praised him for.
Wanting to improve his acting skills, Rodriguez started studying scenes while also attending classes with Lori Wyman and Marc Macaulay. He also attended classes at the University Center of the Performing Arts in Davie, Florida, and HB Studios in New York City.
During his career, Rodriguez has appeared in TV shows like Burn Notice (with John Pyper-Ferguson), The Walking Dead (with Michael Cudlitz), Power (with J.R. Ramirez), The Blacklist (with Diego Klattenhoff and Arnold Vosloo), and Ozark (with Kiley Casciano). He has also worked on films like True Memoirs of an International Assassin, Shaft (with Isaach De Bankole), and 3 from Hell.
