Kuno Becker (born January 14, 1978 in Mexico City) is a Mexican actor.

Becker's career as an artist began at an early age, although not as an actor but as a musician. When he was six years old, he intended to become a professional violinist. After obtaining a scholarship, he travelled to Europe and began his studies in the famous Mozarteum of the city of Salzburg, Austria, where he spent several years studying the violin with internationally famous teachers such as Denes Zsigmondi and Rugiero Ricci.

At seventeen, however, Kuno made the decision to set aside his career as a violinist, in order to pursue what he now considers his greater passion, acting. He auditioned with more than 3,200 candidates, and was accepted as a student at the Centro de Educación Artística (CEA) of Televisa.

At the age of nineteen, after two years of drama studies, he obtained his first rôle in the telenovela Para Toda la Vida, with which he stayed for 120 episodes. He later participated in the telenovelas Pueblo Chico, Infierno Grande (with Verónica Castro and directed by José Alberto Castro), El Alma no Tiene Color (directed by Juan Osorio) Desencuentro (directed by Ernesto Alonso), Rencor Apacionado (directed by Lucero Suárez), Camila (directed byAngelli Nesma) and Soñadoras. In April 2000 Becker concluded the recording of the telenovela Mujeres Engañadas, his first lead rôle.

In addition to his work in television, Becker has participated in some plays with Televisa. In 1998 he worked in the musical comedy En Roma el Amor es Broma. At the time he was appearing in the telenovela Soñadoras, Becker toured several Mexican cities with his one-man show Culpas Prohibidas. In only a few years and thanks to the Televisa's high profile in Mexico, he has become one of the best-known young actors.

In the cinema he provided the voice of Cale in the Spanish-dubbing of the film Titan A.E., and also appeared in the 1997 film La Primera Noche. In 2002 Becker starred in the film La Hija del Canibal opposite the Argentine actress Cecilia Roth, and in 2005 he played the lead role of Santiago Munez for the film Goal!. Becker has said that now he wishes to concentrate solely on his film career, and is looking for new opportunities not only in Mexican films, but also internationally.
