Ed Gonzalez Moreno*
*Actors' Equity Association


Ed Gonzalez Moreno is an On-Screen and Stage actor based in New York City with almost a decade of experience. Ed’s most recent On Camera work includes guest star spots in Law and Order: SVU and FBI. His most notable film work was in the Indie Hit “The Alternate” where he received multiple “Best Actor” wins for his performance. He played the overprotective older brother “Hector” in the indie film Freshman Year featured on NETFLIX, and will be returning for the sequel beginning to film this summer! He’s also been featured on ABC’s To Tell The Truth hosted by Anthony Anderson. 


Ed Began his journey working in the Bay Area Theatre scene where he earned his way into the Actors Equity Association. Some of his most notable roles include “Luce” in Aurora Theatre’s Exit Strategy, “Demetrius” in SF Shakespeare Festival’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, “Hippolytus” in Cutting Ball Theatre’s Phaedra, and “Alcibiades” also in Cutting Ball Theatre’s Timon of Athens.


During Ed’s time in the Bay Area he took the opportunity to give back to schools by collaborating with Theatre companies and becoming a Teaching Artist. In this work he was able to bring Theatre to communities that have had no previous experience with Live performances. 


Ed is very energized to work with Bridgette again on this breathtaking piece. He previously worked with Bridgette in TheatreFirst’s Bagyó.


Other notable Theaters that Ed has worked with are Berkeley Rep, New Conservatory Theatre Center, SF Playhouse and TheatreFirst.
