Joaquín Berthold Pomar is an Argentine-German actor, field hockey player, and director. He portrays Gary López on Soy Luna and Juacas and was a part of Argentina's men's national hockey team. He is most known for his role as Matías on Disney's teen telenovela Violetta.
Life and Career
Berthold grew up in San Isidro but spent six years in Brazil and almost two years in Germany due to his father's work. His grandfather founded the SAG Polvorines hockey club that Berthold played on for many years.
Berthold started playing field hockey at a young age and in 2014, he made the Argentina men's national field hockey team as a goalkeeper. But due to filming for Violetta, he was unable to participate in the World Cup. He eventually left the team altogether to devote more time to acting.
From 2012 to 2015, Berthold was a part of the main cast of Pol-ka Production's Violetta. He also appeared in other Pol-ka telenovelas such as Sos mi vida and Argentina, tierra de amor y venganza. In 2017, Berthold landed a recurring role as Gary López on the Brazilian series Juacas. He reprised this role in Season 2 of Soy Luna as a recurring character and was upgraded to the main cast for the third season.
Berthold is also active in live theater, having performed in works such as Walter, La divina comedia, and Malcom in Macbeth, which was performed at the Teatro General San Martín, a prominent Argentine venue on Corrientes Avenue. Berthold has also directed a number of productions at El Grito, a theater founded by his mother.
Berthold is married to Luciana Cruz Font and has two kids, Laurato and Malena.
