Luis Gerardo Méndez (born March 12, 1982) is a Mexican actor and producer born in Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes. Having previously mostly appeared in smaller films and on television, Méndez shot to fame through his starring role in 2013 comedy film The Noble Family, which for a few months was Mexico's highest-ever grossing film. The following year, he played a role in the movie Cantinflas, and as of 2015 he is co-producing (with friend Gary Alazraki) and co-starring (with Mariana Treviño) in Club de Cuervos, which is Netflix's first ever original production in Spanish.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Born and raised in Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes in the heart of central Mexico. Méndez was asked about his sexuality following a 2014 interview where he used a masculine form to refer to his past relationships. He responded that the comment was taken out of context, that he does not talk about his private life and that the day someone's sexuality stops being news society will make an important step forward.[2] As of January 2016, he was in a relationship with Pablo Chemor.[3]

Awards and nominations[edit]

For his role as Javi Noble in The Noble Family (2013), Méndez was nominated for the Ariel Award for Best Actor.[4] He won a Latin ACE Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his role in Cantinflas (2014).[5]
