Joseph Julian Soria

Joseph Julian Soria is one of those faces you have probably seen before in cop shows and gang movies. Early on in his career, like most Mexican actors, Joseph was typecast into roles of gang members and tattooed up thugs, but as his career progressed, there were more chances for the actor. This led to Joseph Julian Soria starring in a Netflix series called Gentefied, where he plays the character of Erik.

Born to Mexican parents, who immigrated to Los Angeles, California, Joseph Julian Soria took his first breathe on this earth on 28 August 1986. From a pretty young age, Joseph decided he wanted to try his hand in the world of entertainment, and after finding an agent, the actor’s career was up and running.

Joseph Julian Soria was only 18 years old when he got his first movie role, and the actor knew this was something he was comfortable doing. With his boyish appearance, it is hard to imagine the actor being anywhere near 33 years old, but he is making the most of it. So, after almost 16 years in the show business, the actor is involved in one of his biggest roles to date with the Netflix series Gentefied.

Joseph Julian Soria Plays Erik in the Netflix Series Gentefied

According to the description for the series, “Gentefied centers on three cousins who band together to keep their Grandfather’s popular Boyle Heights taco shop in business as the neighborhood becomes more gentrified. Throughout the show’s first season, the cousins confront their differences in their connections to their community, their heritage, and their commitment to the family business, all while navigating larger themes of gentrification and the marginalization of Latinx’s in America.”

Heavy stuff, as you can see, but the show is a comedy where the topics of identity, culture, and heritage come head to head with the topic of gentrification and also the question to either join them and be called a sellout or leave years of business behind. Joseph Julian Soria plays the character of Erik in the series, and he is the grandson of Joaquin Cosio’s character Pop, whose shop is going to be a victim of gentrification.

But the story of Erik takes him through a different path, a path he takes to impress his ex-girlfriend Lidia, played by Annie Gonzalez. Lidia is all about her Latinx identity; she is a liberal and progressive, someone who cannot be in a relationship with someone who doesn’t follow her views. Erik’s identity and what he would do to be with what he considers to be the love of his life is going to be the big part of his arc in the first season of Gentefied.

Gentefied will be available for streaming from 21 February 2020 only on Netflix, and the show stars Karrie Martin, plays Ana Morales, Carlos Santon, plays Chris, and Juaquin Cosio, who plays Pop.

After years of playing the bad guy and appearing in various movies and TV shows playing a thug, the actor was finally given a chance to appear in a hit show in a recurring capacity. The casting process was bad for the actor because he was sweaty from a gym workout, and he himself said everything that could go wrong, went wrong.

Still, Joseph was able to land the role of Hector Cruz in the show, where he appeared alongside his TV-wife, Alyssa Diaz, who played the role of Gloria Cruz. Starting with the 6th season, the actor played the role of Hector, and soon he was promoted to be a series regular in season 7. This show also helped the actor curry a lot of favor towards his career and helped show himself in a different light than the tired roles of his past.

Army Wives opened a lot of avenues for the actor, and he also started to get a lot of meaty roles due to the character of Hector Ruiz. Filly Brown was a much-hyped film he was part of; then, the actor also appeared alongside Kristen Stewart in the movie Camp X-Ray. The actor is also a part of the Sony streaming service show The Oath, executive produced by 50 Cent. But Gentefied has the potential of becoming the biggest role of his career to date.
