Born: October 9, 1964 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico

Married to:
Lorenza Newton (1986 – present) (2 children)

I remember the worst experience of my life, even above the kidnapping of my father, was shooting Mimic (1997) [del Toro’s first Hollywood feature, in 1997, which was severely compromised by producer interference]. Because what was happening to me and the movie was far more illogical than kidnapping, which is brutal, but at least there are rules. Now when I look at Mimic, what I see is the pain of a deeply flawed creature that could have been so beautiful.
