Yon González Luna was born May 20, 1986 to a middle class family in Bergara, Gipuzkoa, Basque Country, but currently lives in Madrid. He has one brother, Aitor Luna, who is also an actor. Yon is fluent in Spanish and works on the improvement of his English. He has not ruled out working in US film and television, though he would only do so with the right role.
Yon began his acting career in the LaSexta series SMS (Spanish: SMS – Sin Miedo a Soñar) in 2006. He then went on to star in the Antena 3 series The Boarding School (El internado), which brought him wider popularity, from 2007 to 2010.
Throughout 2008 and 2009, Yon starred in the motion pictures Sex, Parties and Lies (Mentiras y gordas), opposite Mario Casas, Hugo Silva and his The Boarding School co–star Ana de Armas. He also had a secondary role in Sebastián Cordero's film, Rabies (Rabia). In addition to cinema and television, Yon also appeared in short films: The Storymaker (El forjador de historias), Impossible Loves (Amores imposibles), Identity (Identidad) and Latex Puppets (Muñecos de latex), winning the La FILA Festival of Short Films Award for Best Male Performance for the last one. In 2010, Yon portrayed Constantine II of Greece in Sofía, a television miniseries based on the life of Queen Sofía of Spain. In 2011, he worked mostly on television, appearing in Great Reserve (Gran Reserva), which also stars his brother Aitor Luna, The Whos (Los Quién) and Grand Hotel (Gran hotel).
Yon's performance as Iván Noiret León in El Internado earned him an ACE Award for Best New Actor in 2010 as well as a Golden Nymph for Best Actor – Drama nomination at the Monte-Carlo Television Festival 2009. In 2011 he was ranked the sixth in 20 minutos's list of sexiest Spanish actors. And for his portrayal of "Julio" in Grand Hotel, he won Fotogramas de Plata Award for Best Television Actor. In May of 2015, Yon received the Future Star Award at the International Short Film Festival Torrelavega. This is a new category that was created this year entitled "Futuras Estrellas" or "Future Stars".
Yon's acting career began when he was 18 when his mother suggested that he go to a modeling agency in Bilbao. His first exposure to the public was as a model. In 2007, Yon modeled for David Delfín at the Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week. He was also on the cover of numerous magazines, such as Vanity Fair, Glamour, Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan, either alone or with his The Boarding School fellows. Four months after starting his modeling career he was called in to audition for SMS. The rest is history.
Yon is an aficionado of Karate and has practiced for 15 years, although he has given the sport up as he says he is too busy to do it justice. He is a motorcycle enthusiast and loves riding across country on his Harley Davidson. He has said in interviews that if he weren't an actor he would have been a mechanic, preferably Formula 1, or a physical education teacher. In recent interviews Yon has also said that he loves to cook as it allows him to relax and disconnect from the world. His ideal past time includes relaxing by the beach, enjoying good company, good food and music. Yon is currently single but was in a long term relationship for six years, three of those years he lived with his significant other. He is a very private person and does not have Facebook or Twitter accounts.
