Mexican performer Alfonso Herrera's career took him from television stardom on the series "Rebelde" (Televisa, 2004-2006) to his own five-year tenure as a member of RBD, the most successful Latin American pop act in history, before returning to acting on television in America on "Sense8" (Netflix, 2015-17) and "The Exorcist (Fox, 2016- ). Born Alfonso Herrera Rodriguez on August 28, 1983 in Mexico City, Mexico, he initially wanted to become a pilot, but reversed his decision and enrolled at the Centro de Educacion Artistica, an incubator institution founded by the Latin American media giant, Televisa. After graduating in 2002, Herrera worked in theater before making his feature debut as a spoiled wealthy teen in "Amar te duele" ("Loving Hurts You"/"Loving You Hurts," 2002). He found greater fame on television, first on the Televisa telenovela "Clase 406" (Canal de las Estrellas, 2002-2006) and then on "Rebelde," a frothy drama about prep school students who form their own vocal pop group. Audience response to the series spurred Herrera and his castmates to form a real pop act, RBD, which became phenomenally popular in Latin America and the United States, selling millions of albums and minting Herrera as a bona fide singing idol. Acting, however, remained his primary focus, and after RBD announced its final world tour in 2009, he returned to television and features, where he established himself with turns in dramas like the police procedural "El Equipo" (Canal de las Estrellas/Canal 2 del Televisa, 2011) and the political comedy "The Perfect Dictatorship" (2014). In 2015, he made his English-language acting debut as the lover of a closeted Mexican actor on "Sense8," which was soon followed by the crime drama "El Dandy" (TNT, 2015-2016), a joint production by Televisa and Sony Television. The following year, Herrera was cast as a priest investigating supernatural phenomena in "The Exorcist," a dramatic series inspired by the bestselling novel by William Peter Blatty and the iconic horror film by William Friedkin.
