Biography

Discovered by a talent scout while attending college in his native Chile, Cristian de la Fuente was a popular television actor in South America before breaking into the U. S. markets with appearances in several independent films. He eventually worked his way up to supporting roles in Hollywood features like "Basic" (2003) and popular television shows like "CSI: Miami" (CBS, 2002- ) and "Soñar no cuesta nada" (Venevision, 2005). In 2008, he was tapped to participate in the sixth season of the wildly successful American edition of "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ) - a critical move that raised his international profile more than any film possibly could.
