Early lifeEdit

Aarón Díaz Spencer was born in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico to an Irish-American mother (surname Spencer) and a Mexican father (surname Díaz).[1][2] Diaz speaks English and Spanish fluently and lived for several years in Palo Alto, California. He finished high school in Palo Alto, before returning to Mexico to study at the exclusive Televisa Acting School Centro de Educación Artística (CEA).[citation needed]


He made his acting debut in the popular teen drama Clase 406, playing the role of Kike González.[3] In 2004, he followed Clase 406 with another teen drama titled Corazones al límite co-starring Sherlyn and Sara Maldonado. He then played the role of the older Andrés Romero in the telenovela Barrera de amor starring Yadhira Carrillo. He starred along former flame Sherlyn in Mexico's own version of Grease entitled Vaselina.

Diaz signed on in 2006 with Pedro Damian, (creator of Clase 406) to be Alexander Von Ferdinand, the main male protagonist for the teen telenovela called Lola...Érase una vez, co-starring Eiza González and Grettell Valdez which premiered on February 26, 2007 on "Canal 5" in Mexico.

In 2008 he debuted as a designer and entrepreneur with the clothing brand 'Perra'.[4]

Apart from acting, Díaz is also a singer and he released his first album titled "Enamórate de mí" in June 2009. His second album self-titled "Aaron Diaz," was released in 2011.

In 2010/2011 he was the main protagonist alongside Angelique Boyer and Sebastián Rulli in the latest version of the telenovela Teresa, playing the role of Mariano.

In 2010 he released a 2011 calendar with exclusive, artistic, and original photos of himself.[5] The success of the first calendar caused him to release a 2012 version in December 2011.[6]

In November 2011, Díaz made his debut in an American television show in the ABC series Pan Am,[7] playing the role of Miguel, a dashing, charming, and wealthy entrepreneur in the episode 'Unscheduled Departure'.

For the first time in his career, Díaz starred in an antagonist role in the telenovela, El Talismán,[8] where he played the role of Antonio Negrete, alongside Blanca Soto and Rafael Novoa.
