magazine (Latin Edition) calls Guy Ecker one of Latin
most beautiful people. The Entertainment Critics Association in New
York, and the Association of Critics and Commentators of the Arts
in Miami, awarded him “Best Leading Actor” for
his heartwarming performance as Sebastian, in the acclaimed novella “Café con
aroma de Mujer (Coffee with the scent of a woman). His role as Demetrio,
a troubled tequila producer on an emotional roller-coaster ride of
hate and rage against the woman he married in “La Mentira",
another hit novella, earned him yet another “Best Leading Actor” award
receiving his degree in International Business at the University
Guy abandoned all his side jobs, which included ballroom
dance instructor and horse trainer to become an actor in Hollywood.
He began his acting career in the late 1980’s when he was cast
in three low budget independent films.
Guy soon began to pursue a career in the Latin Market. He was asked
to change his name. Although Guy was born in Brazil, raised in several
Latin American countries, and spoke fluent Spanish and Portuguese,
he was not considered a Latin among Hispanics. His parents are from
Wisconsin and Illinois and he is too American looking.
But Guy persisted, and within a very short time he made the cross-over…without
changing his name.
Guy’s first leading role in Latin America was of a historical
figure named Geo Von Lengerke. His performance in the mini-series “La
Otra Raya del Tigre” (The Tiger’s Other Stripe) was all
the network needed to see. They had been working on “Café con
aroma de mujer” for a long time, and Guy was just the actor
for the role. When his second project hit the air, not only was it
an overwhelming success, but it opened the door to an international
market. Guy began receiving attractive offers from all over Latin
agreeing to three more projects, the novella “Guajira” (a
region of Colombia) “La Mentira” and “Salome”, both
in Mexico, Guy has managed to keep the Hispanic audience captive,
and gain the admiration of loving fans in places like Italy, Russia
and Israel. Some of his projects have had the highest ratings in
Latin American history and have been sold to over 90 countries. His
appearance at events in places like Mexico, Ecuador, Spain, Miami
and New York, have caused the type of commotion and hysteria only
associated with rock stars.
