About me.

Enrique Dueñas is a Southern California-based actor, working mostly in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. He fell in love with acting at a very young age, knowing that he wanted to be a storyteller, he just was not sure how to successfully take on that task. From reciting his favorite lines or reenacting scenes to make his family laugh, Enrique knew that there was a place for him to bring the art form to the world. He began to look at characters differently on screen, wondering what made someone so evil, or why they act the way they do, subconsciously trying to break down every character he watched. It was only a matter of time before this desire of his became fantasy, so off he went into the real world. Enrique played football hoping that he would potentially go to college and continue his education in a field he hardly had any interest in or if that did not work, the Marine Corps seemed a good fit. Then fate came and put him through an injury, breaking his femur, in fact. He was removed from Football Weights, which gave him the opportunity to focus on a little class called Beginning Drama. He then decided that this is where he was meant to be.

After High School, Enrique continued his education in the arts by going to community college after community college until he finally hit the university and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre in 2021 from California State University, Fullerton. He chose Musical Theatre because he wanted to be a triple threat so that he can always be working, though Acting is his true love. Thanks to his training, Enrique can not just act, but can sing with a full Bari-tenor range and can dance full original Jerome Robbins' choreography like West Side Story, and of course do more. Enrique's ultimate goal has always been Film, telling stories on the big screen that can reach and touch the entire world, bringing love, understanding, wonder, humor, and tears to every household. This is where he needs to be, on a stage or screen, telling the stories of everyday people and bringing us all together.
