Birthday: December 12th, 1962Place of Birth: Santiago, Chile
Luis Gnecco Dessy was born in Santiago, Chile. He is one of Chile's most popular comedic actors, tackling the Ricky Gervais part in his country's 2008 version of "The Office". Pablo Larraín cast him in a decidedly non-comedic role as an unscrupulous villain in HBO Latin America's hit mini-series "Prófugos". Gnecco appeared in Fabula's provocative "Young and Wild" before assuming the role of the man who recruits Saavedra to join the NO campaign; it was a natural fit for the actor, as he was deeply involved in the 1988 movement to overthrow Pinochet.
