(Eduardo Yáñez (born September 25, 1960) is a Mexican soap opera actor.
Yáñez was born in Mexico City, Mexico. He lived with his mother and half brothers. He never met his father. Eduardo had a hard and sad childhood alongside his stepfather. As a child, his dream was to become a professional football player, but one day he witnessed a play rehearsal from Vocacional No.1 and he liked it. He asked for an opportunity and they gave it to him. At first he saw it as a possibility to make more money, but little by little he liked it more and more and decided to go to Televisa for a greater opportunity. Producer Ernesto Alonso saw his potential and gave him his first role in the soap opera "Quiereme Mucho". Yáñez played the role of "Carlos" alongside the actress Victoria Ruffo. His natural style and strong physical appearance won the hearts of the audience.
Yáñez married his first wife, Norma Adriana Garcia, in 1987. They had a son named Eduardo Yáñez Jr. They were divorced three years later.
In 1991, Yáñez moved to the United States where he worked on two soap operas for Capital Vision, "Marielena" and "Guadalupe".
Later he worked in Hollywood, movies such as " Striptease", "Wild Things", and "Megiddo". His most recent American movie was " The Punisher". He has also worked in television series such as "Savannah" and "Soldier of Fortune". He most recently worked in "Sleeper Cell" and "Cold Case".
In 1996, Yáñez married Francesca Cruz, a Cuban-American, he met in Miami. They lived between Los Angeles and Miami. In January 2003 they filed for divorce. On April 8, 2009, Yanez narrowly avoided going to jail after Celebrity Attorney Devin Weisberg petitioned a Los Angeles County court to hold him in criminal contempt for failing to pay alimony to Ms. Cruz. The case was ultimately settled for an undisclosed amount.
In 2005, after a long absence, Yáñez returned to Mexico and appeared in a soap opera named "La Verdad Oculta".
He has appeared in 8 theatrical plays, 13 soap operas, 31 movies (of which 8 are in English) and is still working on projects in Hollywood. In 2007, he played the main role in the popular Mexican soap opera "Destilando Amor". He is presently starring as the leading male role in "Fuego en la sangre" , a Mexican soap opera that premiered in January 2008 and ended in November 2008.
