Mauricio Magaña

Just a bit of trivia concerning Mauricio Magaña, the gentleman with whom Rick and I rode out of 3 Señores stables. He is 33 years old and was born here in San Miguel de Allende to a landed family. A great animal lover. In addition to rescuing horses, he rescues dogs, which must be a daunting task in Mexico. But the guy cannot help himself. In fact a couple of times while we were riding, he spoke with villagers about their dogs a how they were treating them.

Mauricio attended film school in Mexico City. So far one can find three credits for him at Internet Movie Database.

He appeared as the older Abraham Sánchez late in the HBO film And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself (2003) that stars Antonio Banderas. You can see the full cast and crew list for that film by clicking here.

He worked as a stuntman in the film Once Upon a Time In Mexico (2003). You can see the full cast and crew list for that film by clicking here. I have seen that crazy movie with Johnny Depp, Antonio Banderas, Ruben Blades and all. It was filmed entirely here in San Miguel de Allende.

He appeared as Panda in the film El Padrino 2 (2008). You can see the full cast and crew list for that film by clicking here. I have no idea what that film is all about.

Mauricio before he recently cut his hair. I chewed his ass out about that.

He is also a diligent riding instructor.

The man to handle all tasks.

I like him.

      Last month I finally saw And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself. You will recall that the young film maker in the movie, Frank Thayer, employs two Mexican boys as assistants while filming the Revolution. One of those boys is killed in the Revolution. The other, named Abraham Sánchez, survives. At the end of the movie Frank Thayer returns to Mexico to attend the baptism of the adult Abraham Sánchez’s child. The adult Abraham Sánchez is Mauricio’s part.

      I know that this is not news that shakes the world, but I very much enjoyed seeing Mauricio in that part at the end of the film.
