After his time as a model, Sánchez started acting in 2002 in his home country doing cinema, television, and theater.[1] His first starring role was in the 2005 television series, El auténtico Rodrigo Leal as Rodrigo Leal.

In 2013, he starred as the antagonist opposite William Levy and Ximena Navarrete in Televisa's La tempestad. This was his first telenovela in Mexico.[3] A year later, he appeared as a special guest on the second season of the series Crossing Lines where he played the reporter Mateo Cruz.

In 2015, Sánchez acted in Señorita Polvora. He landed another protagonist telenovela role in, Lo imperdonable beating out Jencarlos Canela for the role. He acted opposite Ana Brenda Contreras.[4]
