Wesley Guimarãe Actor Wes Guimarães Actor Andrea Antezana Photographer

Hi there!

I'm Wes. I was born in Rio de Janeiro, with proud Latin American roots and Afro-Brazilian heritage. A global citizen, I'm a multi-ethnic and multidisciplinary artist currently working from the West Coast (USA).

Oh, and about that last time, I got you: Guimarães = /Gi·mAH·rUH'es/

About me

craftsman and passionate collaborator, I lead my work with kindness, empathy and driven curiosity. The work of the modern actor is to uplift our communities through the unwavering light of the truth, and that's what I bring to the table.

When I was about sixteen years old, I moved to Italy to attend one of the United World Colleges, representing Brazil and my culture in an international community. That experience brought me to the United States to pursue a career in the arts. I graduated cum laude from Amherst College with a B.A. in Theater & Dance, and went on my way to build community and create work that represents and uplifts my heritage, ancestry and communities.

When my Brazilian Samba meets the American Soul, I'm all about that ancestral power that can't be controlled.


My work exists within the intersections of borders, cross-cultural identities and a strong sense of community.

In May 2022, I earned my MFA in Acting from the American Conservatory Theater, in San Francisco. The first brother from Brazil to ever do it, fam. It's about that, you feel me?



Let's connect!
My team or I will get back to you as soon as possible :)
