Carlos Rivas (born, Oscar Weber, February 16, 1925 – June 16, 2003) was an American actor, best remembered as Lun Tha in The King and I (1956), Dirty Bob in True Grit (1969), and Hernandez in Topaz (1969). Rivas was born in El Paso, Texas, to a German father and Mexican mother. English was his first language.
Carlos Rivas was discovered in a bar in Mexico. He began his career in Mexican and Argentinian westerns, though his Argentinian films were actually filmed in Mexico.
His American debut was in The King and I, (1956) opposite Rita Moreno. After this career highlight, he was quickly reduced to supporting roles. Rivas had co-starring roles in two science fiction films, The Beast of Hollow Mountain (1956) and The Black Scorpion (1957).
Rivas played Chingachgook in The Deerslayer (1957), with Lex Barker, Forrest Tucker, and Rita Moreno.
In 1969, Rivas co-founded with Ricardo Montalban and Henry Darrow, Nosotros, a Los Angeles based organization devoted to improving the way Hispanics are depicted in entertainment.
