Xolo Mariduena was an American actor who was best known for playing the role of adopted son Victor Graham, on "Parenthood" (NBC 2010-15). Born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, Mariduena, whose first name means "dog star" in the Aztec language, was surrounded by the film and television industry as a kid. Mariduena knew almost immediately that he wanted to perform, however, his parents waited until he was older before allowing him to pursue his passion. Around the age of 9, Mariduena started auditioning for TV commercials. He started booking roles immediately, and it wasn't long before a TV casting agent took notice. The agent was looking for a 10-year-old boy to play the part of the adopted son on NBC's hit drama "Parenthood." Mariduena quickly landed the part after his audition, and became a recurring character soon after. Mariduena joined the series during its third season in 2012, and played the role of Victor on 51 episodes. During his three-year run on the show, Mariduena continued to land additional film and TV work, having appeared in an episode of "Major Crimes" (TNT, 2012- ), as well a small role in the 2013 comedy, "Dealin' with Idiots."
