The son of legendary comic actor and producer Tommy Muñiz and brother of Pedro Muñiz; who is also a producer and actor, Rafo began acting as the young neighbor of "Miguel" in "Gloria y Miguel" at Wapa Television, then, after graduating from high school, with his father as his father's son in law, in the legendary sitcom Los García on Puerto Rico's Canal 4' during the late 1970s.
