Demian Bichir: There Is A Personality Thing Going On

Posted: Updated:

Demian Bichir says he's like a shark, always moving forward.

Bichir is the Mexican actor who was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar two years ago for his starring role in "A Better Life."  He was in the summer hit "The Heat" with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.  And now he's starring in "The Bridge" on the FX network.

Bichir, who joins Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day LA, compares himself to a shark because he can't stay still.  He's always on the move.  He's gone back and forth between Mexico and New York City, and now to L.A. where he films "The Bridge."  (He says his location shoots take him from Van Nuys to Long Beach and everywhere in between.)

All the moving around in his personal life has made maintaining stable relationships one of the biggest challenges of Bichir's life.  But he does have a daughter who loves to move around, so that's a plus for him.

On "The Bridge," Bichir plays Marco Ruiz, a detective with Mexico's Chihuahua State Police investigating the gruesome murder of an American judge whose body is found on the bridge connecting El Paso, Texas, to Juarez, Mexico.  Ruiz teams up with an El Paso PD detective (played by Diane Kruger) to catch a serial killer operating on both sides of the border.

Fun Facts About Demian Bichir:

  • Bichir was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in A Better Life.
  • He began his acting career at the age of 14 in the telenovela Rina with Ofelia Medina. His second acting role was as an adult in Vivir enamorada – both telenovelas were during his years with Televisa.
  • The following year he obtained a role in his first movie, the American production Choices of the Heart.
  • His American debut occurred in the movie In the Time of the Butterflies (2001) starring Salma Hayek, based on the real life of a group of sisters that fought against the government of a Dominican dictator.
