In addition, he has showed up in a number of science fiction films, including “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” Oscar is also an accomplished theatre actor with a number of stage credits under his belt.

Early Life

Óscar Isaac Hernández Estrada was born on March 9, 1979, in Guatemala City to a Guatemalan mother, María Eugenia Estrada Nicolle, and a Cuban father, Óscar Gonzalo Hernández-Cano, a pulmonologist. He has an elder sister who is climate scientist Nicole, and a younger brother, journalist Mike.

Isaac’s family moved to the US when he was five months old, and they frequently moved around the country, living in Baltimore, New Orleans and Miami, where they eventually settled. Isaac became a United States citizen in 2006. He has French origins through his grandfather and describes himself as “a big mix of many things”. He speaks English and Spanish.

Isaac attended the private grade school Westminster Christian School in southern Florida. Drawn to creating music and film content since a young age, he found it difficult growing up in Miami, which in his view was not “a flourishing place for the arts” due to its rather conservative nature. 

Career and Salary

Isaac co-starred as Poe Dameron, an X-wing pilot, in the epic space opera film Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). Having liked Star Wars films since childhood, he initially thought himself unfit for the part, but director J. J. Abrams convinced him in a meeting. A fan of Inside Llewyn Davis, Abrams described Isaac as “a far more sophisticated actor than one might get for a role”.

Isaac suggested to Abrams that his character be from the moon Yavin 4, which first appeared in Star Wars (1977) in scenes filmed in his country Guatemala; this idea was incorporated.

While filming The Force Awakens, Isaac felt insecure at first, but soon found a sense of belonging with co-stars Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, who were also newcomers to the film series. In preparation for the role, Isaac read about war, including a book called What It’s Like to Go to War

The Force Awakens got positive reviews and brought in $2 billion worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing film of 2015. Forbes and TheWrap critics praised the cast additions, including Isaac, as “outright terrific”, and “engaging performers” who “make strong impressions very quickly, and who are charismatic enough to make us care about their characters”.

Isaac next voiced the role of Gomez Addams in The Addams Family (2019), a computer-animated film based on the titular characters created by Charles Addams. For years, fans suggested Isaac be cast in the part because they claimed he resembled Raul Julia who played Gomez Addams in live-action films in the 1990s. The Addams Family got mixed reviews and grossed $203 million on a $24 million budget.
