Diego Luna stars in "Contraband," opposite Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale, as Gonzalo.

Audiences worldwide took note of Diego Luna with his starring role in Alfonso Cuarón’s Academy Award-nominated "Y Tu Mamá También," opposite Gael García Bernal. The two lifelong friends have joined with producer Pablo Cruz to form the production and distribution company Canana Films. Canana more recently released "Rudo y Cursi," written and directed by Carlos Cuarón, reteaming the two actors onscreen as well.
Canana’s other feature projects thus far have included Gerardo Naranjo’s "Drama/Mex" and Luna’s directorial debut, the documentary "J.C. Chávez." The latter, exploring the life of legendary boxer Julio César Chávez, world-premiered at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival. Canana’s "El Bufalo de la Noche" ("The Night Buffalo") and "Sólo Dios Sabe" ("Only God Knows") both premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and were directed, respectively, by Jorge Hernandez Aldana and Carlos Bolado. Luna also starred for the company in Agustin Diaz Yanes’ "Sólo Quiero Caminar."
Luna began his professional acting career on the stage, at age seven. At age twelve, he made his television debut in "El Abuelo y Yo," which led to roles in such shows as "El Premio Mayor," "El Amor de Mi Vida," and "La Vida en el Espejo."
Luna continued his stage work in such productions as "De Pelicula"; "La Tarea," based on Jaime Humberto Hermosillo’s movie of the same name; "Comedia Clandtina"; and "El Cantaro Roto," for which he accepted the 1996-1997 Masculine Revelation Award from the Association of Theatre Reviewers. Under the direction of Antonio Serrano, Luna performed Sabina Berman’s "Molière." He recently produced "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare" in Mexico, after winning the 2001-2002 Best Comic Actor award from the Association of Theatre Reviewers for starring in the same show.
Luna's early movie appearances included Julian Schnabel’s "Before Night Falls"; Luis Estrada’s "Ambar," Erwin Neumaier’s "Un Hilito de Sangre"; Gabriel Retes’ "Un Dulce Olor a Muerte" (which took second prize at the Havana Film Festival); José Buil and Marisa Sistach’s "El Cometa"; and Fernando Sariñana’s "Todo el Poder" and "Ciudades Oscuras."
Luna has since been seen in such movies as Gus Van Sant's "Milk," Steven Spielberg’s "The Terminal"; Julie Taymor’s "Frida"; Kevin Costner’s "Open Range"; Gregory Jacobs’ "Criminal"; David Attwood’s telefilm "Fidel"; Hugo Rodríguez’s "Nicotina"; David Trueba’s "Soldados de Salamina"; Oliver Parker’s "Fade to Black"; and Harmony Korine’s "Mister Lonely."
Mr. Luna has also starred in a number of short films made by students at CUEC and CCC, including Javier Bourges’ "El Último Fin Del Año," which won a Student Academy Award.
