Kamar was born on November 8, 1967, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to a Cuban father and a Puerto Rican mother from a musical family. His father, brothers, and grandpa were all accomplished percussionists, as was his grandfather. Kamar was up in Las Vegas, but his love of performing brought him to Los Angeles after high school.

While Kamar’s first major break came in New York as Pedro Quinn in the Off Broadway production “Blade to the Heat,” his lasting fame was forged on the tiny screen. In the long-running soap opera “One Life to Live,” he captivated audiences as the multifaceted character Antonio Vega, performing in approximately 300 episodes from 1995 to 1998 and again from 2000 to 2009. Antonio Vega’s metamorphosis from repentant mobster to police officer fascinated audiences, and was highlighted by a series of love entanglements that highlighted Kamar’s diverse acting abilities.

Kamar de los Reyes made an unforgettable imprint in the gaming world as the voice of Raul Menendez in the 2012 video game “Call of Duty: Black Ops II,” a character regarded as one of the franchise’s most intriguing antagonists. His unusual voice gave the synthetic opponent depth and nuance in following titles such as “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4” and “Call of Duty: Vanguard.”
