“When I first moved to Los Angeles. I came across a couple of people who had given up on their dreams and wanted to make sure that everyone else did the same."
Actress and Venezuelan native, Doris Morgado (@dorismorgado), has worked alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest names on both the big screen and TV, but this wouldn't even be possible if she didn’t use the negative energy that seemed to surround her as fuel for her fire.
“I was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and my family is Cuban. I am a film and TV actress and I’ve been in movies like Logan, Snitch, & 2Gun just to name a few. In TV shows, I’ve been in CriminalMinds, NCIS, NCIS New Orleans, & Colony, just to name a few.”
“Some of my most valuable accomplishments that I’ve had so far in my career was working with Denzel Washington and Edward James Olmos in the movie 2 Guns. Working with Dwayne Johnson on Snitch and getting to portray the role of Desi Gutierrez in Criminal Minds.”
Rewind “When I first moved to Los Angeles. I came across a couple of people who had given up on their dreams and wanted to make sure that everyone else did the same. I was constantly told that I needed to go back to Atlanta because I didn’t have what it takes to be here. Lucky for me, I separated myself from them, looked within me and realized that my journey is different from everyone else’s and by listening to them I was selling myself short. In the end, everything worked out for me.”
“I’ve always been a huge fan of action films. I’ve done sports all my life so to be in an action film is my ultimate goal. Got a couple films coming up where I will be bringing my passion for being acting and my athleticism to the big screen. I’m also going to start producing some films.”

“You have to constantly work towards your goal. You always have to go after what you want even when it seems like nothing is happening. It’s like the analogy of the rock. Someone could have a huge boulder in front of them and constantly be hitting it with a hammer. In the outside it looks like nothings happening but on the inside the rock is cracking little by little and all it takes is that one last blow to crack the rock in half.”✨
