Alfredo Ruiz


Welcome to my corner of the internet. I'm Alfredo, an American-Cuban actor who loves approaching character through physicality.

I'm currently working toward my MFA in Acting at Cleveland Play House/Case Western Reserve


If you're reading this, Ari Aster, I want to play the next cursed character in that A24 nightmare-comedy you've been dreaming of. If that doesn't work out, Joseph Kosinski, I would settle for Top Gun: Maverick II.


I'll be moving to NYC in the summer of 2024 to start working in the TV/Film industry. 

Some favorite films of mine I'm dying to be in the remake of:

American Psycho (Christian Bale)

Lars and the Real Girl (Ryan Gosling)

Whiplash (Miles Teller)

Jarhead (Jake Gyllenhaal)

Alfredo is thrilled to be studying at Cleveland Play House/Case Western Reserve's prestigious MFA Acting program (Ranked 12th in the world by The Hollywood Reporter). He will be graduating in May 2024.

Alfredo was recently nominated as "Best Actor" for his performance in the award winning short film 'Til Death at the international Indie Short Fest, Los Angeles. He was in the running with top performers from around the world, including Kevin Bacon.

In early 2021, Alfredo wrapped up his work as swing/understudy in Miami New Drama's historical, COVID-conscious, world premier of 7 Deadly Sins in Miami Beach. The production was honored with the DRAMA LEAGUE AWARD for OUTSTANDING INTERACTIVE OR SOCIALLY-DISTANCED THEATER. Alfredo performed in the roles of Miran (LUST by Nilo Cruz), John C. Calhoun (PRIDE by Carmen Palaez), and Andre (ENVY by Hilary Bettis).
