The movie is not his first gig in Hollywood, though. He has had other roles in productions such as “Narcos: Mexico” and “The Forever Purge.” He began his professional acting career in 2006, mainly appearing in Spanish movies. Born in Mexico, not much is known about his personal life.

Tenoch Huerta Is a Father

Although Huerta essentially keeps his personal life as private as possible, he often posts pictures of his family and some sweet dedications to them. Photos of his oldest daughter are probably the most shared of all his family members, as he likes to showcase some of his activities with her.

While attending the screening of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the Mexican actor gave a rare glimpse into his personal life by mentioning his daughters during his interaction with People magazine. Although the girls’ names remain unknown to the public, his statement at least gave them their ages. He said:

“I have two girls. One is two and a half [and] the other is nine. It’s a great experience and I feel really blessed with this new representation and the new role that women are taking in movies, in politics, in the academy, science everywhere,”

Tenoch on Namor’s Chemistry with Shuri

According to Rolling Stone, some viewers of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” thought Huerta’s character in the film, Namor, had a romantic chemistry with Shuri, the character played by Guyanese-British actress Letitia Wright. However, Huerta does not feel that it was a romantic relationship between the two, saying:

“I don’t feel it was a romantic touch [between them]. I think it was more a human, intimate touch. I mean in the history of their kingdoms, the history of their people, they share the same root, and the threat comes from the same place for both of them, for the same reason.”

However, the positive for those fans is that he did not completely shut down any possibilities of romantic chemistry in future films.
