Eduardo Cansino, Jr. (October 13, 1919 – March 11, 1974) was an actor, the son of Volga Hayworth, a Ziegfeld Follies showgirl, and Spanish-Andalusian dance master Eduardo Cansino, Sr.

He was the younger brother of actress Rita Hayworth and the older brother of actor Vernon Cansino (1922-1974). The Cansino family lived in a theatrical boarding house in Broadway where Eduardo Cansino, Sr. was appearing nightly with his sister Elisa as The Dancing Cansinos.

By 1929, however the family were having trouble finding a steady job on vaudeville so they moved out west to Hollywood. Eduardo Cansino, Jr. appeared in a fair number of films during the 1950s, but generally with small parts.



Eduardo Cansino died of cancer at age of 54, and is buried next to his brother Vernon at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
