“Before considering acting as a profession, I wanted to be a writer. I loved writing and reading fiction as a kid. I still haven’t given up on that dream. I’ll definitely have a few books and scripts coming down the line.”

“I was so excited and hungry to start moving the puzzle pieces in my life that would later lead to my acting career. At first, it was scary, but the ball started rolling, and the hustle took over.”

“I would rehearse scenes every weekend with classmates, force my roommate to read scenes with me, and study films as much as possible. It was difficult to attend auditions throughout the week and maintain my work schedule, but somehow, I made it work.”

“I’d like to say [the fame] hasn’t affected me much, but that’d be a lie. Being put under any spotlight heightens reality a little bit and changes the way people view you as a person.”

“Many people try to gain something from you. You have to learn who you are as a person and what you want out of your life so you don’t get misguided by someone who has ill intentions for you. It’s important to focus on your career and loved ones, and enjoy the ride.”

“My parents are my biggest inspiration. They came to this country with absolutely nothing and created a life that many could only dream of having. Their work ethic and the genius financial decisions they’ve made throughout their years together are something I truly admire.”

“The best advice I’ve gotten from [my parents] is to focus on one bit at a time. Don’t try to take on the whole world in one sitting. They taught me it’s a long game and to be patient.”

“It’s important to focus on your journey. Learn from others, but focus on your own game of life. The truth is no one has this all figured out.”

“I moved out to L.A. for good when I was eighteen and a half. And then, I booked ‘On My Block’ when I was nineteen.”

“I like roles that are complicated and dark. I grew up watching tormented characters who have a hint of goodness. It’s more of a challenge to play because I’m not a villain in real life. So, I would want to play a character that is far from myself so that I could be challenged.”

Handsome, talented, and down-to-earth. That’s how his fans describe Diego Tinoco as their favorite actor. Well, that’s totally right, agree?
