Actor Wilson Cruz is better known for his recurring role of Dennis Vasquez on the Netflix series “13 Reasons Why”, and Dr. Hugh Culber on “Star Trek: Discovery”. Before that, he won the hearts of his audience playing as Ricky on the hit TV show My So-Called Life, which was also the first openly gay teenager role to air on primetime television.

Cruz also won awards in theatre, winning both the Pulizer Prime and a Tony award for his acting on the award-winning musical Rent.
