Luis Gatica is a Mexican actor.
Luis Gatica grew in a show business family. He is the son of Chilean singer Lucho Gatica and Puerto Rican actress Mapita Cortes; he is the nephew of Puerto Rican actress Mapy Cortes and second cousin of Puerto Rican actor, comedian and producer Paquito Cordero. Having celebrity relatives both in Mexico and in Puerto Rico, Gatica wanted to become a celebrity on his own since he was very young. Gatica participated in various theater plays and in some, not particularly notable, music groups as he grew. He struggled trying to follow in his parents' footsteps.
Having obtained celebrity for the first time, Gatica tried his luck in the world of music, retiring from television from 1986 to 1994. Although his foray into the world of rock music was largely unsuccessful, he nevertheless kept active for those eight years, singing in many Mexican locations.
