Early Life and Career Beginnings

Victor grew-up in New York where his father worked at an auto shop while his mother was a seamstress.

During the making of that film, it was suggested to him by the director that they expand it to a full feature, leading to the creation of “Raising Victor Vargas”. The comedy film follows the story of a teenager as he tries to manage his eccentric family, while also trying to win the affection of a girl. The film was screened during the 2002 Cannes Film Festival and was successful, leading him to gain a nomination during the 19th Independent Spirit Awards for Best Debut Performance.

Rise to Prominence

He continued working on independent films in the next few years, and then had another lead role in the film “Haven”, which was aired at the Toronto International Film Festival; set in the Cayman Islands, it follows the story of differing people whose lives intersect, creating a chain of violence and chaos. In 2005, he portrayed skateboarder Tony Alva in the biographical film “Lords of Dogtown”. To handle the role, he had to do surfing and skateboarding tricks, so learning the craft. The more complicated tricks were performed by stuntmen though, preferring a method acting approach to the role.He tried to skate a huge ramp during the second week of training and fractured one of his orbital bones as a result. He later stated that at the very least, he earned respect from the skaters in the cast

. Over the next few years, he had more roles, such as in “I’m Reed Fish”, ‘Bonneville”, and “Adrift in Manhattan”. In 2008, he played the role of a Private in “Stop-Loss”, a war film starring Channing Tatum and Ryan Philippe, which follows the story of young soldiers who are left psychologically scarred after their experience during the Iraq War.
