Carlos pena Fact File

PictureCARLOS PENA: Trained in musical theatre since he was a young boy, Carlos Pena enjoys starring as Carlos, who is still struggling to find his musical voice yet loves to have fun and treats life like one big playground, in the new Nickelodeon live-action comedy Big Time Rush.

Born on August 15, 1989, to a Dominican mother and a Spanish/Venezuelan father, Pena spent the first part of his youth in Columbia, Mo., before moving to Weston, Fla. Once he settled in Weston, he joined a boys' choir and found himself at home in musical theatre. While developing his vocal skills, he also learned to play the guitar and piano. His first national job was in the Super Soaker Water Gun campaign where he appeared in numerous commercials and was featured on the Super Soaker packaging.

Soon after, Pena landed a recurring role on Nickelodeon's Ned's DeClassified School Survival Guide. In addition, he guest starred on E.R., Judging Amy andSummerland. He competed on the MTV reality show Making Menudo where he found himself among the final nine contestants vying to be in the next Menudo.

When this project came along, Pena was looking forward to his first year at the Boston Conservatory and had no desire to audition for the role. Thanks to his manager's tenacity, Pena finally sent in an acting piece to the producers, and a month later, he booked the gig. Now, Pena said, "I am thrilled to be on the show. It's the best of both worlds to act and have your own TV show and also to sing and record in the studio. Hopefully, we will one day sell out Staples and perform in front of 70,000 people!"

Pena is really into his character because he has so many sides. "He is the tough guy with the fun personality, and he has everyone's back," Pena commented. "But when he gets into the recording studio, this soft side of him comes out, and he is singing romantic ballads for the ladies."

His personal goals are to perform on Broadway and to be one of the few Latinos to win Best Actor at the Oscars. A certified rescue diver, Pena enjoys spending his time underwater scuba diving. A recent transplant to Los Angeles, Pena left behind his family in Florida, including his four dogs.
