Emilio Estévez is an American actor, writer, and director. He is the son of actor Martin Sheen (born Ramón Antonio Gerardo Estévez) and Janet Templeton. He has three siblings, actors Ramón Estevez, Charlie Sheen, and Renée Estevez. Emilio retained his father’s birth surname.

Emilio’s father is of half Spanish and half Irish ancestry. Emilio’s maternal grandmother’s ancestry included English and Scottish. Emilio’s father is Catholic and Emilio’s mother is Baptist.

He has two children with his former partner, model Carey Salley.

Emilio’s paternal grandfather was Francisco Estévez Martinez (the son of Jose Manuel N. Estévez Fernandez and Dolores Martinez). Francisco was born in Parderrubias, Salceda de Caselas, Galicia. Jose was the son of Augustín Estévez Martinez and Maria/Maita/Marta Fernandez Baquíero/Baquero. Dolores was the daughter of Carmen Martinez.

Emilio’s paternal grandmother was Mary Anne Phelan (the daughter of Michael James Phelan and Anna/Anne Jane McGlin). Emilio’s grandmother Mary Anne was born in Borrisokane, Tipperary, Ireland. Michael was the son of Patrick Phelan and Margaret Drennan. Emilio’s great-grandmother Anna was the daughter of John McGlin and Jane Rogers.

It is unclear who Emilio’s biological maternal grandfather was. One source lists his name as Stanley Ryan.

Emilio’s maternal grandmother was Lena/Lee Ann Helene/Helen Martin (the daughter of Thomas/Tom Samuel Martin and Martha Fayette Flint/Flynt). Lena was born in Kentucky, and had English and Scottish ancestry. Thomas was the son of Ananias Martin and Parthenia Osborne. Martha was the daughter of Hyrum/Hiram Flint and Mary Porter/Prater.

when he was younger he was blonde and he has blue eyes and the name ESTEVES never hurt him.

because he looked so irish and white that he never got cast for spanish or latino roles

good for him

He is white so why wouldn’t he get “White” roles?

Yes, he looks white, maybe because he is 100% white.
Latino is not a race, ignorant.

@nnnnn, his grandfather is spanish, not mexican. And the correct way to write his name is Carlos, not Karlos.
