Alfred Castillo, Jr.
Alfred Castillo, Jr. is an actor, writer, producer and director. Born and raised in Houston's East End, Alfred always enjoyed acting and entertaining his friends throughout his youth, but was driven by his family to achieve academic success. Alfred honored his parents by graduating from High School with honors and received his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Houston, Magna Cum Laude. He is a licensed professional engineer in both Texas and California and worked for the Dow Chemical Company/Olin Corporation for nearly 20 years. He is currently employed by Sysco as a Strategic Sourcing Manager.
Although an engineer by trade, Alfred is an actor/performer by heart. Nearly 15 years after graduating from college, Alfred began taking acting classes and landed his first commercial. He signed on with Neal Hamil Agency in 2012 and his acting career was officially launched.
Alfred has appeared in nearly 300 local/regional/national commercials/web videos and industrials, has worked as a model on more than 30 Print projects and has had roles in nearly 30 feature/short films including Walk by Faith, Closer to Home, Joy Comes in the Morning, Pastor's Daughters and Beyond the Vows, just to name a few. He is currently represented by Pastorini Bosby Talent Agency in Houston, TX.
He has been happily married to his college sweetheart Diana for 21 years. Together, they have three children, Josiah, Jaden, and Jeselle and live in Katy, TX. His family has also appeared in commercials and he has roped them into his productions as well. In his spare time, Alfred enjoys church ministry as a Youth Sunday School Teacher, Going on Mission Trips, real estate investing, fishing, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
Writer Producer Director
As a born again Christian, Alfred found it increasingly difficult to find acting work in films without compromising his faith. It became apparent that God was calling him to rise up and create faith based, family friendly content. Without any training or instruction, Alfred stepped out in faith and used the knowledge he acquired in the industry to begin writing and networking with other like minded filmmakers. In 2014, Alfred established his film production company, ROCA Production Films. Shortly after, he collaborated with SCOOT PRODUCTIONS to produce and co-direct his first feature film, entitled La Cadena. The film has been picked up for world wide distribution by Burning Bulb Publishing. Alfred continues to act and write and is set to produce and direct additional feature films in the near future.
