Becker Returning to Mexico’s Silver Screen in La Ultima Muerte

He’s appeared in guest-starring roles on American television shows like House, M.D. and CSI: Miami… And he’s even starred in films like English as a Second Language. But it looks like Kuno Becker is returning to his Spanish-language roots.

The 34-year-old former telenovela star is starring in the Mexican science fiction thriller La ultima muerte, a story that deals with controversial issues like the death penalty and organ cloning in a futuristic context.

After spending a decade in Hollywood, the Mexican actor is returning to his native country’s silver screen “captivated” by the project, directed by compatriot David Ruiz, a.k.a. “Letxe,” a well-known music video director who has worked with Miguel Bose, Ricardo Arjona and Alejandra Guzman.

“I try to work where I feel they’re offering me a good story,” said the actor on Tuesday while discussing his role as Christian, a young man who suffers from amnesia and is being sought by the police on suspicion of murder.

The film will debut in Mexico this Friday. It will then be screened in other countries throughout Latin America, as well as the United States and Spain, in the coming months.

Becker  began his acting career in 1996’s telenovela Te sigo amando.
