Biography

Already a star in his native country of Spain through his collaborations with the revered director Alejandro Amenábar, Eduardo Noriega's breakout role in America came with his 2008 performance in the crime thriller, "Vantage Point. " In the film, Noriega played a Spanish cop named Enrique who's unwillingly thrust into the investigation after an American President is assassinated. Despite earning mixed reviews by critics, "Vantage Point" went on to earn over $150 million at the international box office, leading to his collaboration with Arnold Schwarzenegger in "The Last Stand" (2013) and establishing Noriega as one of the most promising young actors to come out of Spain since Javier Bardem.

Bonus Trivia

.

"When you work in the States, they have everything. The director has everything in his hands to use in order to make his films. If you do a movie in Spain, you have to take off the Steadicam because it’s too expensive. In Spain, you shoot with a really, really low budget and less time." - from Examiner.com, March 7, 2013
