Hemky Madera began his acting career in the Dominican Republic to much acclaim.
On the widely known television production of “Grandes Series Dominicanas” (Great Dominican Series) Hemky took part as the lead actor for the mini-series “En La Olla” followed by “Trio en Alta Mar”; both directed by renowned Dominican director/ producer Alfonso Rodriguez.
After a short stay in the city of New York where he worked in the film production of “Bookies’ Lament”, Hemky returned to the Dominican Republic to star in the mini-series “Asalto en la Lincoln” and became a part of the Primetime television series’ production and cast of both hit Sit-coms “Los Electrolocos” (lead) and “Ciudad Nueva”.
His first theatrical performance was “Pantallas”, produced and staged at Santo Domingo’s Great National Theater.
