Beloved in his native Mexico, Diego Luna has started making a name for himself in Hollywood… But he could soon reach a whole new level of stardom with a little help from international pop star Katy Perry.
The 31-year-old actor—Gael Garcia Bernal’s co-star in the critically acclaimed Mexican coming-of-age story Y tu mamá también—appears in Perry’s latest music video for “The One That Got Away.”
Perry premiered the heart-wrenching clip online and on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday. The beautifully shot clip features the singer and Luna as star-crossed lovers; and perfectly runs through the joy of falling in love and the heartbreak of letting go.
Directed by Floria Sigismondi, the majority of the clip is set in the past, as a sad and aged Perry relives her fiery romance with Luna’s character.
It ends with a traumatic event and an oh-so-heartbreaking tune: Johnny Cash‘s sobering version of “You Are My Sunshine.”
