Who is Noel Guglielmi, the actor who almost always plays ‘Héctor’ in all series and movies?

Noel Gugliemi (52) is an American actor who has extensive experience in a number offilms and series. He began his career at the age of 29 after being one of the cast members of ‘Get Real’, directed by Simon Shore. The Californian made the big leap with his participation in the first film of ‘The Fast and the Furious’, where he played the character of ‘Hector’, a fan of racing illegal cars.

In fact, this name has become his second identity within the acting world. This is demonstrated by the filmography of this American actor who has been called ‘Hector’ in more than 30 series and movies. Most of his roles are associated with a Latino character who is part of a gang. However, he has never revealed the reason why he always has this identification in his work as an actor.

His most notable roles

As for his professional career, it is worth mentioning his appearance in great series such as ‘CSI: Miami’, ‘Without a trace’ or ‘The Walking Dead’, although in this last production he was called ‘Felipe’. He returned in the seventh installment of ‘The Fast and the Furious’ with the identity of ‘Hector’ as well as in ‘Mula’, ‘The Purge’, or ‘Street Kings’ , but with another name. In total, he has participated in more than 50 productions since its inception in 1999.

Also, Guglielmi has featured the music world after being being involved in the music video of ‘The lover’, by Nicky Jam.

The actor, who is married, has a close connection with religion leading to a number of speeches he has given in churches and schools, very different from the role he performs as an actor.
