Considering the industry as it was 20-25 years ago, it probably would have been a better idea for me to just change my last name and have some sort of generic name… When people don’t know who you are and they see that name, they peg you some sort of ethnicity Paulino Nunes.

Paulino Nunes settled in Toronto with his family in 1969, when he was two years old. Having grown up feeling ambivalent about his Portuguese identity, he embraced it in the early years of his acting career and it became an important part of his personal life. Throughout his career, Nunes has worked in numerous theatrical productions, television drama series, and films, including the Oscar-nominated Brooklyn.
