About Oscar Isaac

Oscar Isaac is one of the most popular Guatemalan-born American actors in the world. He is considered one of the Latino actors who has broken stereotypes and built an audience both within Spanish speaking countries, and America, as well as other English speaking regions, as well as in the UK, Australia and Canada. He is known for his versatility as an actor and while he was born in Estrada, Guatemala, he was raised in Miami, Florida by his Guatemalan mother and Cuban father. His family settled in the United States when Oscar was just five months old.

Guatemalan-born American actor Oscar Isaac has an estimated net worth of $10 million dollars, as of 2022. In 2017, Isaac was named the best actor of his generation by Vanity Fair.

When he was growing up he was always passionate about performing, both as an actor and also as a musician. However, early in his career it was a struggle to earn money from his profession and for a time he worked as an orderly at the same hospital as his father, who is a doctor. As a musician, Oscar began playing in punk bands while he was still in high school. He is a singer and also plays the guitar and soon became the lead vocalist of his own band, the Blinking Underdogs.

As a mischievous youth, he was expelled from Westminster Christian, a private grade school, for being behind various pranks including setting off a fire extinguisher in the school gym. Mostly, he would play up and devise pranks to make the other students laugh. At that time, he was also becoming more involved with his acting work, and after being expelled, he realized that he needed to invest his efforts professionally. Playing for laughs may have made him feel good at the time, but as a Guatemalan American who had big dreams for his future, he realized that he needed to invest his efforts more wisely. He began performing in small local plays with the Area Stage Company in Miami.

His first role in a major film was in 2005, when he was cast as the role of Joseph in The Nativity Story. Previous to this, he had been cast in small roles including in All About the Benjamins (2002) and the Ché Guevara biopic Guerrilla (2011). As it was early in his career, Isaac opened up to allowing himself to be cast in television series although that was not his true passion. He wanted more than anything to become a movie star and to this day he has only appeared in two TV series, Law & Order: Criminal Intent for a single episode, in the beginning of his career in 2006, and Star Wars: Resistance for four episodes in 2018 and 2019. In more recent years he has also appeared in the mini series, Show Me a Hero, Scenes from a Marriage, and Moon Knight.

Isaac’s persistence and dedication to be cast in big movies came to fruition when he appeared in 2008’s Body of Lies, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Russel Crowe. Then, in the 2009 film Balibo, he played the role of former president of East Timor, José Ramos-Horta. Set in the backdrop of the Indonesian invasion of East Timor in 1975, Balibo is based on the true story of Australian journalists the Balibo Five, who were captured by Indonesian militia (civil military). For his portrayal, Isaac won the Australian Film Institute Award for “Best Supporting Actor”.

Another notable point in Isaac’s career has been his starring in the Coen Brothers’ folk music-themed comedy-drama, Inside Llewyn Davis in 2012. Isaac gave an excellent performance and received a Golden Globe Award nomination. Since then his career has improved tremendously and, in 2014, he appeared in five movies including Ex Machina and A Most Violent Year. In 2015, he appeared as Poe Dameron Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and he reprised the role as a voice actor in video game Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as well as stared in Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, as well as the TV series, Star Wars: Resistance.

Through his appearances, Oscar Isaac is credited as having broken stereotypes and broadened audience acceptance of Latino Americans in starring roles in American movies. One of the reasons for his success, is that he is considered incredibly attractive making multiple lists of “Hottest Man” and “Sexist Man Alive”.
