Enrique Murciano

 

 

 

          

 

 

Born Enrique Ricardo Murciano on July 9, 1973, in Miami, he spent the first few years of his life in Mexico

before his family returned to Miami. He is a graduate of Christopher Columbus High School (1991)

and Tulane University (1995). He did manage to cement his status as a hero at the tender age of 10,

as you can see from the article below!

 

 

 

 

He started to study law at Boston Law School before leaving to pursue his dream of acting in 1997.

His first audition won him the role of Alejandro in Speed 2: Cruise Control. Though he only had one line,

it took six months to film. After guest appearances on Suddenly Susan and The Pretender in 1999, what was

supposed to be a two day stint on the movie Traffic evolved into several weeks of work as DEA Agent Ricky and

put him into several pivotal scenes.

 

 

         

 

 

In 2001 Enrique was cast in the short lived MTV soap opera Spyder Games before being cast as Sgt Lorenzo

Ruiz in Blackhawk Down a project that also introduced him to producer Jerry Bruckheimer. It was a meeting

that lead to his most notable role to date Special Agent Danny Taylor in Without A Trace.

 

 

        

 

 

While still working on Without A Trace Enrique continued to work on films including Miss Congeniality 2,

The Lost City and the Spanish language film Mancora. Since the cancellation of Without A Trace, Enrique has

had guest appearances on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Medium, as well as a starring role in the Lifetime

         movie Marry Me. Enrique currently has a recurring role on NCIS as Special Agent Ray Cruz affectionately

nicknamed "C.I. Ray" by NCIS regular character Tony Dinozzo.

 

 

     

 

 

Enrique's latest project is a new feature film adaptation of the stage play Water and Power both written by Richard Montoya.

The film should be released sometime in 2013, we are all looking forward to seeing Enrique on the big screen once again!
