Despite Raúl Juliá’s talents, opportunities for Latino actors were scarce. Rubén Blades, Andy Garcia, and others discuss how Raúl Juliá overcame discrimination to make a name for himself as an actor — without losing his Puerto Rican accent or changing his name — helping to pave the way for Latinx actors today.

American Masters presents the first documentary film exploring the remarkable life and legacy of the enthralling actor: Raúl Juliá: The World’s a Stage, premiering nationwide Friday, September 13 at 9 p.m. on PBS (check local listings), pbs.org/americanmasters and the PBS Video app.
