My name is José Pescina, I was born in Mexico city in 1989. I grew up among my mother and my sisters, so I am always aware and respectful about women’s issues in the world, and proud of my first main female role as a oaxacan muxe in Carmín Tropical, a film directed by Rigoberto Pérezcano.
I studied acting at Centro Universitario de Teatro, UNAM in Mexico city. It is relevant to mention that, at this time, I was confused between becoming an actor or a visual artist. But cinema showed me a fascinating way to talk about life through fiction, and how subversive being an actor could be for a shy guy like me. Finally I made my decision and the charachters that I have been fortunate enough to portray never ceased to surprise me. About these charachters, I like their different textures, whether it is on cinema, theatre or tv. As the visual artist that I am inside defining the texture of a charachter is as important to me as choosing between a white canvas, a piece of wood or a cement wall.
I consider myself a curious actor, interested in controversial themes. So, when I have the opotunity to participate in a story, I like to think that I can hold a real dialogue with the audience that goes beyond the use of words.
