Steve Cardenas will be appearing at The Great Philadelphia Comic Con! on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Steve will be at the Ranger stop booth.
Steve Cardenas was born at Langley Air Force Base, in Hampton, Virginia, U.S. and is of half Mexican descent. He started training in martial arts when he was about 12 years old and reached black belt in tae kwon do at age 16.
His character, Rocky, replaced Jason Lee Scott (played by Austin St. John) as the Red Ranger in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series, and he later became the Blue Ranger for Power Rangers Zeo. He had no previous acting experience and had to learn on the job. Cardenas left the Power Rangers series at the beginning after Zeo, in order to focus on his karate school and other disagreements. Many years later, starting at the 2007 Power Morphicon convention, he began making convention appearances with other former cast members.
