Interview with Erik Estrada of Former Police Drama TV Series CHiPs-2016

Henry Enrique “Erik” Estrada was born on March 16, 1949 in East Harlem, Manhattan, New York City, NY. He is an American police officer (deputy sheriff) and actor of a Puerto Rican descent. He is best known for his co-starring lead role in the 1977–1983 United States police television series CHiPs. He is also known for his work in Spanish language telenovelas (soap operas). He has appeared in reality television shows and infomercials. He has a successful career as voiceover artist and is currently working on Cartoon Network’s Sealab 2021. This earned him an estimated net worth of $2 million.

Erik Estrada made his film debut in the 1970 film version of The Cross and the Switchblade in the role of Nicky Cruz together with Pat Boone who played the role of David Wilkerson. He took part in the disaster film Airport 1975. In 1978, he trained in martial arts in preparation for a two part episode in CHiPs.

In the 90s, Estrada played in a Mexican telenovela. Despite his descent, he doesn’t speak Spanish so the lines were fed to him over an earphone during production. He landed the role of Johnny in Dos mujeres, un camino (Two women, one road) in 1993 where he had to take 30 straight days of Berlitz Spanish lessons before he could begin. The show became the biggest telenovela in Latin-American history and has helped revived his almost non-existent career.

Will.i.am, Founder i.am angel Foundation, at the CGI 2012

The unusual premiere speaks to Will.i.am’s larger initiative to inspire students and young people to cultivate an interest in science. At the JPL event, the artist, born William James Adams Jr., also announced a partnership between his i.am.angel Foundation and digital resource provider Discovery Education for a program called i.am.STEAM, intended to bring science, technology, engineering, art and math (or STEAM) to K-12 classrooms around the country.

Will.i.am isn’t the first musician whose music cracked Earth’s atmosphere. The Voyager deep-space probes, launched in 1977, house a copy of Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode,” for instance, but Will.i.am became the first to have a song on Mars. He initially connected with NASA after buying a $5 million time block on ABC for the back-to-school one-hour TV special “i.am.FIRST-Science Is Rock and Roll” last August. (The special was filmed at the 2011 FIRST Robotics Championships for kids.) After the show, NASA administrator Charlie Bolden was piqued by Will.i.am’s educational initiative, inviting him to attend the Curiosity launch at Cape Canaveral in November and putting in motion the idea to beam an original song on a 708 million mile round trip between Earth and Mars.
