Carlos Valdes stars as Cisco Ramon/Vibe in The CW series, “The Flash.”
After graduating from the University of Michigan, Valdes joined the national touring cast of “Jersey Boys.” Soon after, he landed on Broadway in the role of Andrej in the Tony-nominated musical “Once.” He has since also taken part in the Encores! series at City Center in New York. Though Valdes is making his television debut on “The Flash,” his character has crossed over onto other DC shows like “Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “Supergirl” and “Vixen,” as well as the original web series, “Chronicles of Cisco.” He voiced the character of Cisco Ramon on both “Freedom Fighters: The Ray” as well as the television movie “Vixen: The Movie.” He even was seen in the short film “Tom and Grant” with Grant Gustin and Tom Cavanagh.
In addition to his work as an actor, Valdes is an active musician and composer. Credits include an original score for Jesse L. Martin’s original short film “The Letter Carrier,” original music with internet sensation Team Starkid, and a few records under his moniker “Tha Los.” His most recent music video release, a cover of Bobby Caldwell’s “Open Your Eyes,” now has over 3 million views on YouTube.
Valdes currently resides in Vancouver.
