American actress Jennifer Brennan was born on February 11, 1969, to American parents in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles County.
Horseback riding was Jennifer’s pastime before she started a thriving business shipping horses, animals, and cultural artifacts around the world.

The Profession in The Acting Arts
Bauer’s first major role was as the adolescent son of a Cuban exile family in Miami in the PBS bilingual sitcom Qué Pasa, USA? from 1977 to 1979. In 1980, he also made an appearance on the TV miniseries From Here to Eternity. As Rocky Echevarra, he was acknowledged in these and other early works.
Bauer met his future wife, Melanie Griffith, while they were both starring in the 1981 TV drama She’s in the Army Now. Ray Liotta moved to Los Angeles, while the two of them relocated to New York and remained at his apartment. Bauer and Griffith both took acting classes with Stella Adler, and Griffith performed in a number of off-Broadway shows as a result. At this point in his career, he began using the name “Steven Bauer” professionally.
Like George Raft in the original 1932 version, Bauer was a relatively unknown actor when he was cast as Manny Ribera in the 1983 film Scarface.
The producers of Scarface were convinced of his suitability for the role after seeing his impressive audition and learning about his genuine Cuban heritage. He was nominated for a Golden Globe as the best supporting actor for his work. He appeared in two other major films that year (1986).
The first was in the cop comedy Running Scared with Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines, in which he played Det. Frank Sigliano. The second time was in the television drama Sword of Gideon, which aired on Canadian CTV and featured him as Israeli soldier Avner. The film chronicled the efforts of Mossad agents to track down and kill terrorists in the wake of the 1972 Munich massacre.
American actor Steven Bauer, who was born in Cuba, is reported to be worth $5 million. Starring in such films and shows as “Scarface,” “Traffic,” “Breaking Bad,” and “Better Call Saul,” Steven Bauer has become a household name.

But his impressive audition convinced the filmmakers that he was the best choice for the part, particularly given his Cuban heritage. The audience loved his work in the movie. He was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor.
