Born and raised in Miami, Enrique Murciano was always interested in acting. After attending Tulane University and spending one year at the New England School of Law, he moved to Los Angeles where he studied acting at the Larry Moss Studio. Enrique obtained an agent and on his first audition, won the role of Alejandro in Speed 2 (1997), starring Sandra Bullock. A dry spell followed, but in 1999 he landed guest appearances on the TV shows Suddenly Susan and The Pretender. However, his big break came with a role in the Academy Award-winning film Traffic (2000), starring Michael Douglas.

The following year he played Sgt. Lorenzo Ruiz in Black Hawk Down (2002) and became a regular on the MTV series Spyder Games. When that show didn't last, he quickly landed the role of Danny Taylor in CBS-TV's drama series Without a Trace, which proved more successful, becoming the second highest rated new drama of the 2002/2003 season. In 2004, Enrique shared a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination with four other cast members for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.

While on hiatus from the series in 2004, he reunited with Bullock when he was cast as Jeff Foreman in Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous (2005), then filmed a part in Andy Garcia's directorial debut, Lost City (2006), starring Dustin Hoffman and Bill Murray.

He has also made numerous TV appearances, including recurring roles on series such as Without a Trace (2002 to 2009) as Danny Taylor, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2009 to 2012) as Detective Carlos Moreno, The Blacklist (2017) as Julian Gale, and the hit Netflix series Bloodline (2015 to 2017), as Marco Diaz.

He also played a detective in the comedy Rough Night (2017), starring Scarlett Johansson, Zoë Kravitz and Kate McKinnon. He returned to Netflix for the series Bright (2017), playing a supporting role opposite Will Smith. Most recently, he played Pete on the TNT crime drama series Tell Me Your Secrets (2019).

In his spare time, Enrique is an exotic car and motorcycle enthusiast who enjoys playing guitar and piano.
