Today in 1962 Hispanic actor Emilio Estevez was born in Staten Island, New York. Estevez is part of one of the few Hispanic acting dynasties in Hollywood. His father is the Martin Sheen (Ramon Estevez) and his younger brother is Charlie Sheen (Carlos Estevez).
Estevez made a name for himself in 1980s as part of the ‘Brat Pack’ that were involved in popular films like St. Elmo’s Fire and The Breakfast Club. This tireless Taurus proved he didn’t need a Brat Pack to act, he also performed in fan favorites like the Repo Man, The Outsiders and Young Guns. Estevez went on to act in the Mighty Ducks film franchise – he is often mistaken for the current Anaheim team coach.
Today the actor is seen less on screen then behind the scenes as an aspiring director.
