Wagner Moura stars in "Narcos" on Netflix as Pablo Escobar.

Best known for his star making role as Captain Nascimento in the "Elite Squad" films (outgrossing "Avatar" in his native Brazil), Wagner Moura is Brazil's preeminent actor. Moura was born and raised in Brazil's northeastern state of Bahia, where he began his career studying journalism before embarking on a career in drama, most notably with his theatrical performance in the acclaimed "A Máquina," bringing him to the attention of Brazil's larger film and television industry.

Moura's extraordinary and natural acting talents quickly thrust him into the spotlight, where he made his feature film debut opposite Penelope Cruz in "Woman on Top" and a series of notable television roles in Brazil. Moura has gone on to star in over twenty feature films over the last decade as well as bringing Shakespeare's "Hamlet" to Brazil (where he personally translated and starred in the title role) for a three-year run.

Moura was recently announced as the star of "Fellini Black and White," where he'll play the famous Italian filmmaker. He'll be supported by a pedigreed ensemble that includes Abbie Cornish, Nina Arianda, William H. Macy and Peter Dinklage.

Moura is quickly duplicating his homeland success here in the U.S. where he recently starred in the feature film "Elysium," alongside Matt Damon and Jodie Foster.

Moura resides in Rio de Janeiro with his wife Sandra, who is a photographer and documentarian, and their three children, Bem, Salvador, and José.
