Biography

Ramón Valdés was born in Mexico City on September 2, 1923. When he was two, his family moved to Ciudad Juárez, a northern border town where he and his brothers polished their acting skills. The three brothers went on to become three of Latin America's most well known comedians. Valdés participated in more than 50 Mexican films, specializing in hyperactive underdog characters. He is most remembered, however, for playing Don Ramón in the hit television show El Chavo del Ocho. Show creator and main star Chespirito was a fan of Valdés, and thought Valdés would make a perfect fit to play Don Ramón, an unemployed widower with a daughter, a romantic admirer, and a neighbor who slapped him across the face in every episode. El Chavo, played by Chespirito, would sometimes call Valdés' character Ron Damón. As a result, Valdés' character was known by both monikers.

Ramón Valdés also appeared on Chespirito's other hit show, El Chapulín Colorado, usually as Chapulín's antagonist, the famous Tripaseca. Both El Chavo and became major international hits across Latin America, Spain, the United States, and other non-Spanish speaking countries, giving their entire cast international fame. Ramón Valdés was no exception, as he would be identified as Don Ramón at many different countries he visited. Valdés also owned a circus and even participated in circus acts. He passed away on the 9th of August, 1988 after battling lung cancer for quite some time.
