Xolo Mariduena is an American child actor best known for his starring role as Victor Graham in the comedy-drama television series Parenthood.
Born in Los Angeles, California, Mariduena was barely three days old when he got his first taste of behind-the-scenes action in a radio station studio. He has grown up watching artists perform firsthand, which sparked his intense interest in becoming a performer in his own right.
Fulfilling that passion, Mariduena started acting professionally in 2011. His natural talent helped him quickly secure an agent, and he landed dozens of roles within his first year.
Those included several television commercials, a recurring role on Parenthood which became a series regular role in Season 4 and a principal role in a major motion picture.
Mariduena's unique look is a gift of his multicultural background (he is of Mexican, Cuban and Ecuadorian heritage), and his unique name means "Dog Star" in the indigenous Nahuatl language.
In addition to acting, Mariduena enjoys Shotokan karate, dancing and singing.
