Rick Gonzalez

Rick Gonzalez was born in 1979, June 30 in Brooklyn, New York. The actor has both Dominican and Puerto Rico blood in his veins. Rick's parents were immigrants from South America and they met in New York where the father of the actor proposed to his wife. The couple decided to live in Bushwick, one of the areas in Brooklyn, as it was the best they could do in terms of their finances and ensuring the best possible environment for their son to grow up in. Rick went to elementary school and to high school while growing up in Brooklyn. Since an early age, the boy was very active in terms of participating in various plays and any other acting-related event his school produced. He also spent a lot of time doing impressions of his family members or close friends. The teachers noticed this in a boy and talked to him about it saying that he has a lot of talent and should consider a career in movies and TV shows. The actor agreed to suggestions and tried applying for High School of Performing Arts, a school which specializes in performing arts and is located in the Lincoln square. Rick Gonzalez got accepted and immediately started to work hard towards his goal. He finished the school in 1997 and this was the time when he started to pursue a job in the world of actors.
