George Cisneros is a bi-lingual actor who lives in Los
Angeles where he’s working his dreams as an actor.
He’s starred in numerous Indie films where he’s
portrayed dramatic roles such as an abusive lover in
the film “Unimaginable” to a loving son in “Nana’s
Brunch” and now he’s one of the stars in a new
comedy web series “DogGone It!” where he plays
Jorge Lopez where he’s the animal agent to the
stars. He’s quite the versatile actor from drama to
comedy. We talked a little about the latest drama he
was in and the comedy web series he’s starring in as
The film “Unimaginable” is a drama where you
played Kirk and your character is very flawed and is
an abusive to his lover Antonio. I know in a previous
interview you said you did your homework and
prepared for the role. So, how did you prepared for
the role of Kirk?
When I prepare for a role in any film, I always
meditate on who the character is and what his role
is in the film. I also read up on the subject of
domestic violence as well to know more about the
topic that has impacted so many in our society
today whether it is in a heterosexual relationship or
same sex. Also talking to a victim of domestic
violence also was beneficial as well preparing for the
that I had to think like Kirk who was not only flawed
and dark because he was abusive and not just
physically but mentally and emotionally as well. He
also was damaged as well because of his own past
and the feature sheds some light on that. So, for me
Kirk was definitely was one of the most challenging
ones. I don’t want to say I became Kirk….but
thinking like him was trying mentally and physically.
Let’s talk about your latest role which is in the
comedy web series “DogGone It!” that you’ll be
starring in where you play Jorge. How much fun has
it been to be a part of it?
You know, it’s been fun so far. Preparing for the role
and having some input with my character has
definitely been fun for me as an actor. You know
bringing to the life the character from page to
screen is just one of the cool things about acting
and comedy is a nice break from drama. Everyone
loves comedy and of course dogs…like Giovanni.
Since you’ve been involved in numerous Indie film
projects and there is so much talk of lack of
diversity in Hollywood and having more women
involved in films do you think the Indie film route is
the best way for more minorities and women to be
more involved or to take charge?
Yes and one example of an actress is Reese
