Christian Camargo

Christian Camargo (born July 7, 1971) is an American actor, perhaps best known for his role of Brian Moser in the Showtime drama Dexter. Camargo was born Christian Minnick in New York City, New York, the son of former soap opera actress Victoria Wyndham and grandson of actor Ralph Camargo. He is a 1992 graduate of Hobart College. He was the Program Director of WEOS, the college's public radio station. Camargo is a graduate of the Juilliard School of Drama (Group 25: 1992-1996). He went on to perform in the 1996 Broadway production of David Hare's Skylight with Michael Gambon (Theater World Award). From there, Camargo went to England to join the inaugural company of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre on the Southbank. He met his future wife, English actress Juliet Rylance, there. Camargo's grandfather, Ralph Camargo, was a Mexican-American actor who talked his daughters into changing their names to something Anglicized because he felt he had lost roles due to being Latino. Camargo decided to change his name back from Minnick because of pride in his Mexican-American heritage and wanting to bring back a name that he felt was connected to his profession.
