Alberto Rosende’s on (Chicago) Fire…
The 26-year-old Colombian and Cuban American actor has landed a recurring role on the upcoming eighth season of NBC’s Chicago Fire.
Rosende will portray Blake Gallo, a young firefighter who loves his job and joins Firehouse 51 as the Chicago Fire Department expands the number of firefighters on second shift. Casey (Jesse Spencer), Herrmann (David Eigenberg) and Severide (Taylor Kinney) — impressed with Gallo’s relentless energy — take him under their wings.
From executive producer Dick Wolf and co-creator Derek Haas, Chicago Fire looks into the lives of the firefighters, rescue squad and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51 who risk their lives week in and week out to save and protect the citizens of their city.
In addition to Spencer, Eigenberg and Kinney, the cast includes Eamonn Walker, Kara Kilmer, Miranda Rae Mayo, Annie Ilonzeh, Christina Stolte, Joe Minoso and Yuri Sardarov.
Rosende is best known for his starring role as Simon Lewis on Shadowhunters, which aired for three seasons on Freeform. He’s currently the face of Old Spice’s new ad campaign entitled “Never Let a Friend Lose His Swagger.”
Chicago Fire‘s Season 8 premieres on September 25 on NBC.
