After that, he decided to start his acting career and enrolled in the Centro de Educación Artística de Televisa in 1990. In his early career, he was known to many audiences for his role in the Mexican version of Sesame Street. Colunga also starred in other shows, such as The Web, Marked Time, and All Of It.

He starred in telenovelas, including Cenizas y Diamantes, Madres Egoístas and Maria Mercedes. Carla Estrada offered him a role in the soap opera, Más Allá del Puente, together with Maria Sorté in 1993-1994. After this telenovela, Colunga played a role in Marimar.
