Julio Cedillo

Raised between Ft. Worth and Mexico, Julio César Cedillo is best known for his showcase performance as the title character in THE THREE BURIALS OF MELQUIADES ESTRADA, which marked Tommy Lee Jones' directorial debut and went on to win two Palme d'Or awards at the 58th Cannes Film Festival. The TORONTO SUN describes Julio as "Significantly, charismatic as the title character and the DALLAS MORNING NEWS hailed him as giving a "sensitive nuanced performance as a lonely northern Mexico Vaquero."

Julio recently wrapped production in a supporting role on FRONTERA, and independent feature starring Ed Harris, Michael Peña and Eva Longoria. He also appeared guest star in Season Three of the AMC series hit THE WALKING DEAD.

Julio enjoyed a blockbuster summer after working in COWBOYS AND ALIENS opposite a star-studded cast alongside Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Sam Rockwell. It was one of the most anticipated films of the year, helmed by "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau, produced by Stephen Spielberg and Ron Howard.

Returning to the independent film world, Julio landed at the Sundance Film Festival for his efforts as Coach Chapa in the feature film titled Benavides Born. The film set in South Texas was chosen to compete in the Dramatic Competition joining a select group of notable actors and films. It later gained wide distribution and was released as ALL SHE CAN. It made it's temporary stop on HBO LATINO.

Julio has had a bountiful career spanning two decades working in television and film opposite some of the most iconic actors such as George C. Scott, John Goodman, and Kris Kristofferson to name a few. Some of his favorite directors include Billy Bob Thornton, Gregory Nava, Bertrand Tavernier and Wes Andersen.
