Justo Martínez as Porfirio Diaz in Zapata

Justo Martínez is a Mexican actor who worked on Plaza Sesamo for many seasons, first as the puppeteer for both Abelardo and Paco, in much the same way Caroll Spinney doubled as Big Bird and Oscar. In 1981, when new Muppet characters were added, he moved on-camera as plaza resident Fernando.

A veteran character actor in Mexican film and television, Martínez has appeared in the occasional English-language film, with small parts in The Penitent (as a nurse, with Raul Julia and Armand Assante) and Bandidas (as a banker, with Salma Hayek, Penelope Cruz, and Edgar Vivar). His Spanish-language films include Sexo Por Compasión, Por Si No Te Vuelvo a Ver, and the historical drama Zapata - El sueño del héroe (as Porfirio Diaz).
