Jimmie Bernal was born on February 23, 1962, in Chicago, Ill. Widely known for his roles in Mas Sabe el Diablo, Te Quiero Pecas, and Complices, Bernal got his start in acting during his early 20s. His role as Matt Terry in Gallito Ramirez catapulted him into fame and fandom, while his subsequent lead role in Te Quiero Pecas secured his status as a dynamic and incredibly popular actor.

During his late 30s, Bernal stepped back from acting to focus on furthering his other interests, including a career in diving, and close and executive protection, before returning to the screen to star in Complices, followed by other key roles.
Transitioning from his largely Latin American screen career, Bernal recently took a critical role in Nickelodeon’s Every Witch Way.

He lives with his wife and children in Florida, where they raise and breed Arabian horses, and foster social outreach
