A Martinez is no stranger to drama. In addition to his role on “Longmire,” the actor took on two soapier roles during the show’s run, both of which he has kept to this day. Martinez joined the cast of “The Bay” for a single episode in 2014 as Nardo Ramos, the patriarch of the Ramos family, and after a few years’ hiatus, Nardo became a recurring guest star in 2017.
But Martinez is probably better known for his other current soap opera role as Eduardo “Eddie” Hernandez on “Days of Our Lives.” In 2015, he joined the show as the estranged father of Rafe (Galen Gering) and Gabi (Camila Banus). Although his character was taken to jail in 2017 (by his own son!), effectively removing him from the series, Martinez rejoined the cast in 2020 in time to convince his children to leave Salem for Mexico to escape some impending danger (via Soaps).
The characters of Nardo and Eddie are just the latest in a series of soap opera roles that Martinez has taken over the course of his career — he’s also been on “Santa Barbara,” “General Hospital,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” and more.
