Bio

Jonathan Del Arco is an Uruguayan-born American actor best known for his recurring television roles as Hugh the Borg in Star Trek: The Next Generation and as Dr. Morales in The Closer and its spin-off Major Crimes.

Jonathan previously collaborated with The Closer producing team of Michael Robin and Greer Shephard on James Duff's The DA, and on Ryan Murphy's Nip/Tuck, where he made a splashy showing as the transgender character Sophia Lopez who went through the change over the course of the show's first season.

In 2012, Jonathan filmed a pilot with Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas for Lifetime Television and has been a part of the television landscape with memorable appearances in countless television shows including The Sopranos, 24, Dollhouse, American Dreams, Crossing Jordan, Huff, The Division, First Monday, Sisters, Grosse Pointe, Star Trek: Voyage, Pearl, The Mommies, The Wonder Years, Blossom, Boy Meets world and Miami Vice.

He also appeared in the films True Right, The Mambo Kings and Lost Angels. He earned cult status among Star Trek fans worldwide with his portrayal of the loveable Hugh Borg on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Jonathan was born in Uruguay and came to the states at the age of 10 when his parents settled in Port Chester, a suburb of New York City.

When he was old enough to ride the trains on his own, Jonathan would trek to the city to catch the latest plays and enrolled in acting classes.

When he turned 18, he joined the company of the Broadway hit Torch Song Trilogy and toured the country along with Golden Girl Estelle Getty in what was then considered a highly controversial gay play. Many other Broadway and off Broadway plays followed before Jonathan settled in Los Angles to pursue a television and film career.

While in Los Angeles, Jonathan found a new passion – politics and social activism. He worked for environmental causes, gay rights, state initiatives, and two presidential campaigns before landing at GLSEN (The Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network) where he works as a consultant running the West Coast fundraising operation for the national organization.

GLSEN works to ensure safe schools for all children regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity and to curb the hateful results of bullying in our schools.

He also served as an Obama Celebrity Surrogate for the 2012 Presidential Campaign, giving speeches across the country on behalf of the President.
