Born in Santiago Chile, Pancho moved to the United States with his mother at age 8. Pancho’s first challenge was learning English. His ability to pick it up quickly was foreshadowing to his innate ability to memorize lines and learn dialects. At age 11, he found his first love, skateboarding. It taught him dicipline, determination and above all confidence. So much so, that at 18 Pancho became the 1st Little Person professional skateboarder in the world.
At age 28, after touring the world skating, Pancho moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting.. While the roles for Little People can be few and far between, he brings to acting the same discipline and preserverance he used with skateboarding.. “ In order to earn the big bucks you have to pay your dues,” he says.. Pancho has explored various techniques with teachers including; Art Evans, Robert Rusler, Matthew Barry, BoJesse Christopher and at the Upright Citizens Brigade. This year, after 3 years of studying at the at the world renowned Actors Studio, Pancho became the 1st Little Person lifetime member ever.
