Meet Raúl Castillo: A Chicano Leading Man.
Whether it was as the charming Richie on HBO’s acclaimed series Looking or on an off Broadway stage acting with Emmy nominee Sandra Oh, we know the moment you witnessed Raúl Castillo’s tremendous talent, you knew he was the type of leading man you’d always wanted, and the type of leading man Hollywood has been missing. Raúl, a multifaceted stage & screen actor who honed his craft in New York City, hails from McAllen, Texas and is the proud son of Mexican parents from Tamaulipas. We sat down with Raúl to talk about recent projects like the 2018 Sundance hit We The Animals (in theaters now), a future arc on Starz’s VIDA, and upcoming indie film El Chicano, where he stars as the lead in this new Latino superhero feature! With only about 3% of film roles going to Latinxs (USC), Castillo’s presence on screen is necessary and all the more rewarding to witness. Good news is, you can #NetflixAndChill with Raúl tonight... by binge watching shows like Seven Seconds & Atypical!
