When and where was René Monclova Born?

Son of Puerto Rican actors Myrna Vázquez and Félix Monclova

René Monclova was born into a family of actors. His mother Myrna Vázquez was a prominent actress and activist of the '50s and the '60s. His father Félix Monclova was no slouch either and appeared in such movies as Preciosa, Heroína, and Sanchez. Both his parents died in their 40's but their influence rubbed off on their three sons, all of whom became artists in some form.     

René's older brother Eugenio Monclova had a successful career, capped off with a starring role alongside Michael Sheen in the 2016 drama film The Vessel. He currently teaches drama. His other brother, Hector Ivan Monclova, is a writer.

Career

With his early exposure to drama, courtesy of his parents, René spent time on television sets where his parents were filming. He starred in his first stage play at 10 in the production of Sacrificio en el Monte Moriah.
