Jorge Garcia played the role of Hugo Reyes, more commonly known as Hurley.


Jorge Garcia was born in Omaha, Nebraska. He is of Cuban and Chilean ancestry.[1]

His first performance was as the villain in his school's seventh-grade musical production, based on the comic strip Drabble. It was after this that he began to seriously consider acting as a career. Once he completed college, he joined the Beverly Hills Playhouse and has been working steadily as an actor ever since. [source needed]


In February 2010, to coincide with the sixth and final season of Lost, Garcia and girlfriend Bethany James Leigh Shady created Geronimo Jack's Beard: A Lost Podcast and its accompanying blog, which presents the couple's reactions to the episode scripts as delivered to Garcia rather than to the episodes as filmed and broadcast.
