ADAN CANTO has quickly made his mark in the US after firmly establishing himself as a go-to acting talent in his native Mexico.  Starring as Dominic in the ABC Comedy Mixology, Canto plays a carefree New York bartender whose charm, charisma, and swagger overwhelm anyone around him.  Created by the writers of The Hangover, Mixology tells the story of ten individuals at a bar; the entire season depicts the events of a single night as they all fall in and out of love. On the film side, Canto will join the star-studded cast of the next installment of the prolific X-Men films in “X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURES PAST” as the mutant Sun Spot.  Directed by Bryan Singer, the ensemble cast includes Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, and Halle Berry among many others and it will be released by 20th century FOX on May 23rd


Canto made his stateside debut as a series regular in the Kevin Williamson drama, The Following, a critically acclaimed series on FOX in 2013.  Canto’s character, Paul Torres, was a seemingly-normal man who is revealed to have a very dark side. Canto joined Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy as part of the ensemble cast and left an impactful mark with viewers during the first season.


His previous credits include the play “Todo Sobre Mi Madre” (“All About My Mother”), an adaptation of Pedro Almodovar’s Oscar-winning film. The play was first adapted for the London Theater and was later translated into Spanish and performed in Mexico.  Canto played Mario Del Toro, a playful actor portraying the role of Stanley Kowalsky in ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ (as a play within the play). Canto also starred in the Mexican film AMAR NO ES QUERER (“TO LOVE IS NOT TO WANT.”) The film followed the story of Jackie (Adrian Louiver) who has yet to realize her lifelong dream of working with cancer-stricken children. When her husband falls into a coma after a car accident, she decides to fulfill that dream. Before coming to the states,  Canto starred in the romantic comedy CASI 30 (“ALMOST 30”) as Sid, a young man who begins questioning his life path as he is about to turn 30.


Additional acting credits also include the 2009 Panamax thriller “SIN MEMORIA” (WITHOUT MEMORY) and “TE PRESENTO A LAURA” (“AND PRESENTING LAURA.”) On the television side, Adan scored a series regular role on “Estado De Gracia” (“State Of Grace”) for Canal Once (Mexico’s equivalent of the BBC Channel) and guest star roles on “Los Minondo” and “Me Mueves” (“You Move Me”), also for Canal Once.  Canto made his film debut at age nine in Garcia Marquez’s classic “Like Water for Chocolate”


Canto’s other passion is music. Growing up with his artistic mother, he became a professional singer at 16.  Canto formed the Delcanto Jazz Band  in 2011 which has an established fan base in Mexico.  The band stays true to the classic sounds with a Frank Sinatra feel to many of the songs. Canto also wrote and composed original songs including “Me Cuesta Vivir”, which was featured in his project “TE PRESENTO A LAURA.”


Canto hails from the small town of Acuña Mexico across the border from Del Rio, Texas.   He currently divides his time between New York and Los Angeles.
