Photos with Rene Moran
Rene Moran was the first of three children. Born in El Salvador, to two young hard working parents, at the age of one his family picked up and fled to Los Angeles to escape the enduring realities of a Civil War. At the age of four, he and his family moved to Orlando, Florida. He regards to himself as a "Florida Boy" because of the formative years he spent in Orlando being exposed to the rich Caribbean culture. Salsa and Bachata taught him how to move, and Arroz Con Gandules kept his body nourished. Read more... difficult choice of leaving the family to move back to Los Angeles. Leaving home was a difficult decision to make, but looking back, it was also the best and most exciting decision as well. His first years in California were a journey of self-discovery. He would eventually find a job within the entertainment industry where he learned a lot about himself. He worked side-by-side with agents, managers, attorneys and casting directors, and built lasting relationships he would grow to cherish. He had never formally acted until he met Donald Pemrick and Dean Fronk of Pemrick/Fronk Casting. They introduced him to the world of acting and provided him with his first audition (and eventual booking) for a film entitled, "Stiletto." He then met Dani Wulff, his current commercial agent, who believed in him and encouraged him to pursue a career in acting. From his role in "Stiletto" he became a member of SAG and went on to book national commercials for Ford, Ihop, Nike (directed by David Fincher), and Miller Lite (directed by Antoine Fuqua). He would eventually go on to book roles for television shows such as Lie to Me (Fox), Shameless (Showtime), Switched At Birth (ABC Family) and various other full-length films and film shorts. Rene is constantly working at improving his craft. He's studied Meisner technique at Playhouse West, Improv at Upright Citizens Brigade as well as private coaching with Shari Shaw.
