Charles G. Rojas
Charles began his career writing music and sound design for television commercials. After two years of gaining insight into the production process, he decided to pursue acting. He dove headfirst into the theatre program at Santa Monica College and became part of the school's production of Once in a Lifetime by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman. The highlight of his studies was having Aric Martin, a Juilliard graduate, as his instructor for a semester. Charles was pushed to gain a sense of realism only attained through hard work, research, exploration, and commitment to the character. In the fall of 2016, he was cast as the lead role in the school's thesis film, With a Single Leg. Charles is thrilled to be a part of the amazing cast and crew of Salsipuedes Street and look forward to making an amazing film.
