Glamorous on Netflix is an uplifting new queer series. It is about Marco (Miss Benny), a young queer and gender-nonconforming makeup enthusiast, whose life gets turned upside down when he gets hired as an assistant to beauty mogul Madolyn Addison (Kim Cattrall). Many others have joined its cast. Damian Terriquez is one of them. So, in this writing, let’s get to know him better. But, before that let us tell you that he is nonbinary and uses he/they pronouns.
Damian Terriquez On Netflix’s Glamorous
Damian Terriquez plays the character Dizmal Failure on Netflix’s Glamorous.
Smiling, Damian has talked to Hello! magazine about the “wild” moment when he got the call about starring in Glamorous. He explained that he did not get cast until after they started filming the first episode. So, he already knew the other people that were attached, specifically Kim. So, his concern at the time was “Are there enough roles to sustain a career to try to do this?”. He got his manager and his agent through. And when he got the audition and was cast in the role of the “ironically named” inspiring drag queen.
Damian describes Glamorous as The Devil Wears Prada meets Ugly Betty, but queer and makeup-focused.
Late in the process, Damian was on vacation in London when he got the audition for this show. He was on a cruise. Yet, he said, it was a whole nightmare, just to send recordings back and forth with the time differences.
When sharing his Glamorous experiences, Damian has also talked about being starstruck by Kim and Miss Benny.
How Much Is Damian Terriquez Net Worth?
Damian Terriquez while embracing his role as a nonbinary Latinx role model, has managed to make close to $300K net worth as of 2023.
He previously worked in Hollywood as a dancer and then behind the scenes in production roles. In those times, he often doubted if there would be a place for him as a gender-nonconforming Latinx star on screen.
Damian studied Fashion at Woodbury University in the Class of 2020. Part of his dissertation at the time was the gender-neutral space as he never understood why men had to shop in “this” section and women had to shop “over there”.
In his earlier career days, Damian was so trepidatious about getting into the industry, thinking, “Is there space? Are there enough roles?’”. But now, he is being able to do just that. So, now, for the future, he hopes the industry is going to look even more different than it does now, and he also hopes to get to be a part of that. He also is optimistic to make it easier for somebody else that comes after him.
