Cobra Kai frontman Xolo Maridueña was born to his parents Omar G. Ramirez and Carmelita Ramirez Sanchez. He got chosen as the DC superhero Blue Beetle.

The 21-year-old appears on the fifth season of the Netflix karate drama, where he plays the part of Miguel Diaz. His performance caught the eye of DC Films chief Walter Hamada and Galen Vaisman, Warner's executive, as they hope to cast him on their next venture. 

Indeed, the film is already making rounds as the first movie led by a Latino actor, putting immense pressure on his shoulder. He talked about the extraordinary audition process that only began with a zoom chat with Hamada. 

With no exceptional credits backing his name, he wondered how such a high-level individual knew his name. Despite his nervousness, he kept calm when they said they had him in mind for a pivotal role in the DC universe. They desired more than a fresh face as it would be a multiple-movie project.

He did not even read a single life from the script when he got finalized and shook their hands to close the deal.

Although the experience was overwhelming, he is nothing but excited while he remains focused on the fifth season of Cobra Kai premiering Sept. 9.

Producer Omar G. Ramirez And Radio Host Carmelita Ramirez Sanchez Are Xolo Maridueña's Parents

American actor Xolo Maridueña is born to his loving parents,  music producer Omar G. Ramirez and his wife, radio host Carmelita Ramirez Sanchez. The pair have not disclosed their ages, but we do not think they have much of an age gap. 

His dad came from East Los Angeles, where he became one with his roots after creating beats for hip-hop musicians. His artistry has not remained limited to his culture but takes inspiration from images, politics, and sounds from the world around him. 

Indeed, his underdog story intersects with fashion and music as he does not wish to get defined by race and class inequalities. After working for two decades, he becomes an educator and activist who collaborates to extenuate his horizons while providing musical productions for films and other performers.

Meanwhile, his mum began as a marketer and promoter for Delicious Vinyl. Her task force got elevated when she moved to The Idea Botanica to become its director for corporate relations and sponsorships. But her interest in radio remained since the 1990s as she got a job as an on-air host and producer on The Wake Up Show. She familiarised herself with the Hip Hop radio program while overseeing their marketing department. 

Her operations changed from advertising to self-confidence as she wanted to nurture Latino artists and seek their development through various exhibitions and programs. 

Indeed, her interest in the arts continued when she became the executive director of Boyle Heights Arts Conservatory. The corporations supported many budding youths in creating pathways to music, arts, and entertainment industries while being one of the most inclusive and reflective institutions. Although she forged her radio career, she liked to be in the environment as she operates as the station manager for KQBH 101.5 FM.  

What Is Xolo Maridueña Ethnicity? Does He Have A Sibling?

21-year-old Netflix actor Xolo Maridueña is from a Latino ethnicity as he is the middle child of three siblings. He has two sisters, a younger one named Oshun and an older Talia.

Since childhood, the trio has been thick as thieves as he used to make satirical jokes before getting famous. He had a good time making fun of their rubbish picture-taking skills when they took a practically blurry one while vaccinating in New York. You can watch the picture on his Instagram, xolo_marid, where his verified handle supports three million people.

Besides, the Los Angels native is of Hispanic lineage as they have a mixture of Cuban, Ecuadorian, and Mexican blood. He had a knack for singing since he was young, coming from an incredibly artistic family. 

Getting introduced to the hip-hop culture, he began acting at age ten as casting directors saw something special in him. 

His venture has him graduating from Cathedral High School, California, early so he could enroll in the Young Actors Space and get a head start. 

By 2011, he had made his professional debut at ten as he even got an agent to make his work easier. He was accepted for numerous roles in his debut year and became a regular in television commercials. 

Oshun, the youngest of the clan, followed her brother's footsteps to join the film fraternity and got booked by the agents for Acura, My Little Pony, and Salad Gig. Her enamoring voice got her a voice acting role for Disney XD's Future-Worm while doing ADR work, including the Netflix series Jessica Jones.
