    According to his wiki: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Camargo Minnick was just the anglicized name that his grandfather made his children take due to him losing roles for having a Spanish/Latino last name.

      Minnick is his non-hispanic father’s last name, his maternal grandfather Ralph Camargo was Mexican. I hate to be rude, but maybe you should try reading the article you comment on, before you leave 4 identical comments.

        He said it in an interview but maybe he just got his own family history mixed up. It happens. And I made 2 identical comments, 1 was a mistake. You hate be rude yet you are rude lmao

    for whatever reason he’s listed as “Male actors of Italian descent” on Wikipedia. “Camargo” is a Spanish last name.
