Happy Birthday: Enrique Murciano

enriquemurciano.jpgHappy Birthday actor Enrique Murciano

Born: July 9, 1973 in Miami, Florida, USA

On his first audition, 1997, he landed the role of Alejandro in Speed 2: Cruise Control (1997). The role only involved one line, but it took six months of shooting.

His big break came three years later, when a two-day stint on the set of the Academy Award-winning Traffic (2000) turned into several weeks work as the role of DEA agent Ricky, placing him in several pivotal scenes with Luis Guzmán and Don Cheadle. After the short-lived TV series Spyder Games (2001), Enrique landed the role of Sgt. Lorenzo Ruiz in the much-acclaimed Ridley Scott film Black Hawk Down (2001). It was during the shooting of that film that he was introduced to Jerry Bruckheimer, a meeting that led to his role in Without a Trace (2002).

Happy Birthday: Fred Savage

Happy Birthday: Douglas Booth

Born: July 9, 1992 in Greenwich, London, England, UK

QUOTES:

I like to wake up late, around 11 A.M., especially if I have been out the night before. Then I go to brunch with either my friends or my girlfriend. I then like to just chill out: read the papers, read some scripts and then take it very easy. If it’s sunny, I go for a walk with my dog, Niles, in the countryside.

I fell in love at 14 and I remember that mad, tense feeling and all the mad things you do for the person – all those extremes and all the stuff you don’t mind putting up with.
