Biography

Emilio Rivera fell in love with acting following his first theater experience in his third grade production of "Rumpelstiltskin." Though becoming an actor was very challenging for someone who grew up as part of a minority group in a poor section of Los Angeles, he persevered and even worked as a mechanical engineer while he pursued his dream. Eventually, he landed roles on both the big screen and small screen including Con-Air, Traffic, The Cable Guy, NYPD Blue, Beverly Hills, 90210, Walker, and Texas Ranger, just to name a few. His most notable role, however, is playing Marcus Alvarez on the FX motorcycle gang series Sons of Anarchy.
