Jaime Federico Said Camil Saldaña da Gama, known professionally as Jaime Camil, is a Mexican-Brazilian actor, singer, and television personality. He is best known for his roles as Fernando Mendiola in La fea más bella and Rogelio de la Vega in Jane the Virgin, the latter of which he was twice nominated for the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
Camil's entertainment career began in 1993 as a radio commentator on Radioactivo 98.5 before becoming a small-screen host on El show de Jaime Camil (1995), TV Azteca's Qué nochecita con Jaime Camil (1996), and Televisa's Operación triunfo (2002). In 2009, he co-hosted Aventura por México with Javier Poza, and in 2010 he hosted the Mexican edition of the game show, El Gran Show.
Camil is also a singer, releasing his first album, Para estar contigo, in 1999. His second disc, Una vez más, was produced in 2002 with the singles Dime and Muriendo por ti rising to #17 and #24 Billboard's charts. In 2014 he stood on the other side of the microphone for the first time, directing the music video Perdon for the group Barston.
Camil is most recognized for his work in the telenovela industry. Beginning in 2000 with Mi destino eres tú, he has held roles on shows including Mujer de madera (2004), Las Tontas no van al cielo (2009), Los Exitosos Pérez (2009-2010), and the show that secured his notoriety, the romantic comedy telenovela La fea más bella (2006-2007).
2012 brought Camil's most memorable and technically challenging roles as Juan Carlos in Por Ella Soy Eva. La fea más bella and Por Ella Soy Eva comprised two of the three highest-rated telenovelas since Mexico started keeping records. A year later, his guest appearance on an episode of Devious Maids helped propel it to the third-highest-rated show of the series.
His film debut was in Delfines in 1997, but it wasn't until 2003 when film producers noticed his talent in acting. He co-starred in three different movies filmed in just a year; Puños rosas (rel. 2004), Zapata (rel. 2004) and 7 Días (rel. 2005), for which he was awarded the 2006 Diosa de plata as Best Supporting Actor. Camil has also voiced the role of Barry in the Spanish-language edition of the animated movie Bee Movie and dubbed the voice of Elliot in the Spanish version of Open Season. Camil's stage credits include the Broadway-bound musical The Mambo Kings (2005), Latinologues (2005), West Side Story, for which he won the Palmas de Oro award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical, and El diluvio que viene, which won him the APT and ACPT awards for Best Actor in a Musical.
From 2014 to 2019, Camil played the role of Rogelio De La Vega, the biological father of Jane Villanueva, and, fittingly, a telenovela star, in the CW network comedy, Jane the Virgin. For this role, he was twice nominated for the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and was a four-time Teen Choice Awards nominee for the Choice TV Actor in a Comedy, winning the title in 2018.
In 2018, he also starred in the main role of Panchito Pistoles on Legend of the Three Caballeros based on the 1944 film, as well as taking over the role of the TaleSpin character Don Karnage in the 2017 DuckTales reboot. He also voiced the character Globgor in the final season of Star vs. the Forces of Evil in 2019.
He is co-founder and spokesman of the Short Shorts Film Festival Mexico, as of 2006. He earned a license in business administration from Universidad Anáhuac; studied acting in New York, Los Angeles, and Mexico; and took classical opera training in Italy.
