Becker was born in Mexico City to Manuel Becker Cuellar and Maria del Rocio Bebbie Paz. His paternal grandfather was a wealthy businessman and his maternal grandfather was Spanish. His maternal grandmother was the sister of famous Mexican actress María Félix. He is of German and Spanish ancestry. He has two siblings, Gunther and Karine. Becker's career as an artist began at an early age, although not as an actor but as a musician. When he was six years old, he intended to become a professional violinist. After obtaining a scholarship, he traveled to Europe and began his studies at the Mozarteum in the city of Salzburg, Austria, where he spent several years taking violin lessons with internationally famous teachers such as Denes Zsigmondi and Ruggiero Ricci. At seventeen Kuno made the decision to set aside his career as a violinist, in order to pursue what he now considers his greatest passion, acting.
