Mexican telenovela, film, stage actor and musician Andy Zuno has been cast in the recurring role of “Rafael,” on The Bold and the Beautiful.   Zuno began taping on Tuesday, May 7 and his first episode aired on Thursday, June 20, 2013.   You probably noticed he is in ca-hoots with Linsey Godfrey’s character of Caroline in trying to get Carter and Maya together!

“Andy is a talented young actor and is a great addition to our cast,” said Executive Producer and Head Writer Bradley P. Bell. “He brings forward a strong comedic talent that plays perfectly into the hot and ground-breaking story we will begin telling this summer.”

B&B is the first and only daytime drama to simulcast in Spanish utilizing SAP (Secondary Audio Program) technology. Zuno will translate his own character into Spanish for B&B SAP simulcast.

Best known for his portrayal of “Hugo Arango” on the telenovela “Al Diablo con Los Guapos,” for which he won a FAMA Award for Best Supporting Actor, Zuna has also starred on Spanish language programs such as “Pasión,” “Mujer Casos de la Vida,” “Decisiones Extremas,” “Loteria” and “Amar de Nuevo.”

Zuno got his start on the big screen in 2004 when he was cast in the film “Emisario del Odio.”  He also has an extensive background in theater, including roles in “The Play About Baby,” “The Goat,” “Te Odio,” “La Luna 100 Watts,” “El Códex Romanoff,” “Unos Cuantos Piquetitos” and “Innana Queen of Heaven and Earth.” He received the Association of Theatre Journalists Award for Best Leading Actor for his performance in “Mentiras.”   In addition to television and film, Zuno is a talented musician.  In June of 2010, he released his first single as a solo pop artist, “Suma de Dos,” from his debut album Andy Zuno: Mas de Una Vida.

Telenovelas tend to have the same problems w/ racial diversity as american day soap operas. Majority of actors on telenovelas are light skinned Latino actors and white hispanics who are cast as the leading chars. While Afro latinos and dark skinned Latino actors tend to be cast as supporting chars and comedic relief and poor compared to the rich chars who are white hispanics. Telenovela rafaela used blatant racism as “comedic relief” for a scene. They had a racist char bow to an Asian cook bec she thought that she was Japanese when the cook was Chinese. That same racist… Read more »

People wonder how Y&R and BB are the top 2 soaps for decades..
CBS shows Y&R and BB in 36 countries..
And now, B&B will be the first and only daytime drama to simulcast in Spanish utilizing SAP..
Having more viewers does not mean the 2 soaps are the best for the past 3 decades, they just have more people watching in 36 countries..

Could this be B&B’s first gay male character? The first one in a fashion industry in Los Angeles? lol

They can’t have a gay male character because Brooke wouldn’t be able to have sex with him and we all know how Mr. Bell loves to have Brooke hook up with every male on the show—

It appears he is gay. Recall, Rafael balked at having to accompany Caroline to the July 4th party, because he’d already made plans to bring his apparent boyfriend named “Mario.”

Really Fox? Thank you, hopefully he is!

Yes, Blake, really! .. And since then, Nelson Branco raised the subject in his newsletter writing, “B&B kicked it up a notch by giving Caroline a gay friend, Rafael. Played perfectly by promising newcomer Andrés Zuno, B&B is portraying a gay man who is slightly flamboyant yet masculine. That’s not easy to do — in any medium.”

So far I don’t like his scripts as he appears to be easily bossed around by Caroline.
I give this a thumbs down for the story line.

Not liking this storyline at all. Very silly. Cannot stand Caroline-they have destroyed her character.

I agree with Gloria I use to like caroline But now She acts like a Spoiled Brat (nice words) If she’s so Thinking Carter is all That… Then She Needs to Be with him & leave Rick alone…….As for Raphael…He needs to be casted as a closet gay that Brooke goes after….But can not Get …But Not Understand “Why???” That He Is Not responding to Her Advances…….

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
