As a child, Santiago was interested in soccer and played it enthusiastically while he was in England. Playing semi-pro soccer and even becoming captain in his high school, he thought of becoming a professional soccer player.

Eventually, during his final year before graduating in 2003, he began to get roles in several TV and Theatre projects, which led him to achieve his passion for acting.
