Daniel Moncada stars in "Breaking Bad" on AMC as Leonel Salamanca.

Daniel Moncada, aka Danny Moncada, was born in Honduras and came to the Los Angeles area with his mother and two brothers. Though never officially in a gang, he still found himself enmeshed in the lifestyle alongside his older brother Luis Moncada. But soon, Danny was inspired by his brother to leave the gang lifestyle. He started working security on the movie sets.

Danny's big break came from the opportunity to audition for

a role on "Breaking Bad." His brother Luis had first auditioned for the role. The casting director told Luis they loved him but they were looking for real cousins or brothers for the parts. Luis said no problem, "I have a brother."

He came home and told Danny to shave his head, gave him a script and told him to memorize the lines. The two went back for the audition, and the rest is history.

Danny is immensely grateful for the opportunity "Breaking Bad" afforded him.
