Who Is Brandon Larracuente? What Is His Ethnicity And Who Is His Girlfriend?

Brandon Larracuente is the dashing guy who played the role of Jeff Atkins in Netflix’s TV series, 13 Reasons Why. He is a talented actor who has been acting for about 20 years after he was introduced to the theatre at the age of four – he started at New Rochelle Opera House.

He made his screen debut four years later with the off-Broadway show named Desire. Since then, Larracuente has appeared in no less than ten feature films and TV shows. Aside from his work as an actor, he is also a model, brand ambassador, Instagram tutor, and more. Indeed, he is a multi-faceted young man but many of his fans often wonder what his ethnicity is.

The Truth About Brandon Larracuente’s Background and Early Life

He was born on November 16, 1994, at Pleasantville, New York. His dad, Israel Larracuente, is a retired homicide detective with the New York Police Department (NYPD) and his mom also worked as a police officer with the NYPD. Both of his parents are from Puerto Rico which automatically confers a Hispanic ancestry on Brandon. He is proud of his heritage and speaks both English and Spanish fluently.

Brandon Larracuente has such a good relationship with his father that the senior Larracuente is credited with informing most of his decisions such as prioritizing fitness. It is not known which high school he attended but it is on record that his father helped him through some of his most difficult times in high school, including bullying.

There is, however, no record as to whether Brandon went to college. But we know he started acting so early and has never really taken any considerable break throughout his acting career.

Growing up in a household with parents who are both police officers, Brandon Larracuente surprisingly developed a deep love for acting. This love has turned into a full-blown acting career that has cut across the theatre and screen.

A Detailed Walk Through His Career Timeline

Born in New York City, a city known as an economic powerhouse and a cultural melting point, Brandon Larracuente has made it his duty to passionately utilize acting to establish his mark. He began acting just fresh out of his toddler age. He was only four when he made his theatrical debut as a part of two operas. A lot of child stars would have phased out after a while but not Brandon. Though he did take a while after his debut performance at the New Rochelle Opera House, the young actor found his way back to the performing arts in no time.

At the age of 8, Brandon starred in an Off-Broadway show called Desire. Shortly after, he moved to Florida where he appeared in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and It’s a Wonderful Life both at the Orlando Repertory Theatre. In time, he began acting more important roles on screen, starring in a number of feature films and TV shows such as the indie film Missing 24 Hours (2011) as Christopher and a minor role in the crime data TV series The Glades in 2013.

He took on the Nickelodeon sitcom, Every Witch Way in 2014 as Joshua and NBC’s Constantine as Mateo Lopez in the same year. Although Brandon Larracuente seems to be more famous for his role in the Netflix TV series 13 Reasons Why (2017-2018) where he portrayed Jeff Atkins, his first big break no doubt came in the 2015-2017 Netflix thriller series Bloodline. There, Brandon filled the role of Ben Rayburn.

Brandon Larracuente is quite an eye candy in every sense of the expression. He stands at a height of 6 feet (1.83 cm) with a well-sculptured body. He has a muscular athletic build with bulging pectorals and biceps. This is obviously a result of his voracious appetite for the gym. His weight currently hovers around 75 kg.

There have been several rumors that Brandon Larracuente is gay. But there is no record or strong indication that he is. Besides, he has not come out to confirm any of the hearsay which is common among celebrities.

Contrary to the rumors about his sexual preference, the actor has a girlfriend with whom he displays a lot of affection both on social media and elsewhere. He even frequently acts with her on set. Her name is Jazmin Garcia.

Brandon Larracuente has been dating Jazmin Garcia since either late 2016 or early 2017. But, it was on the eve of Valentine’s Day 2017 that he made his relationship with Jazmin public. He did so by posting an Instagram picture of her with him in a rapturous romantic pose. With Jazmin Garcia in the picture and Brandon Larracuente not confirming otherwise, it should be safe to say he has a straight sexual orientation.

Brandon is still in a publicized relationship with Jazmin Garcia, and frequently posts about his love for her on Instagram. For a relationship that has become Instagram official, Brandon and Jazmin look absolutely happy with each other.

Meanwhile, while his popularity has gradually been on the rise, there hasn’t been any record of a past relationship for Brandon. So far, Jazmin is the only woman who has been linked to him romantically.
