Humberto Meza was born in Santiago, Mexico. At an early age, Meza was diagnosed with polio, a viral disease that can cause paralysis and death. Poverty-stricken.
Meza was first introduced to the film industry in 1994, while on a dinner date. The Coasters, an American rhythm, and blues/rock and roll vocal group, gave a musical performance in the venue where he was having the dinner date at. After their performance, a film producer approached Meza and encouraged him to fill in as a background actor on the film, "Angels in the Outfield." There, he had the great opportunity of working alongside an amazing cast, composed of Christopher Lloyd, Danny Glover, and Tony Danza. Meza fell in love with the film industry the second he stepped in front of the camera.
Meza's hard work and determination landed him on the set of many other blockbuster films such as Larger than Life with Bill Murray, Metro with Eddie Murphy, and The Net with Sandra Bullock. In 1998, with only $800 to his name, he decided to pursue his dream and headed for Los Angeles. There, he worked as a temp for countless companies that helped him build his repertoire. He even had a chance to work as a Strike Coordinator for the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) during the 2000 Commercial Strike. There he met many great actors who motivated and encouraged him to continue to pursue his acting career.
