The Spanish actor has signed with CESD Talent Agency.
Quickly establishing himself as an actor to watch in Spanish and Latin American film and television, Vega starred in Telecinco drama Secretos de Estados, as well as MGMInternationalTelevision’s hit comedy series, Herederos Por Accidente, among other projects.
Most recently, he appeared in a co-lead role in Netflix’s Spanish-language remake of Big Bad Wolves, which wrapped principal photography in March.
He also starred opposite Ron Perlman in the short film The Caddy, directed by Gabriel Beristain and executive produced by Frank Ariza.
The 28-year-old Argentine singer/actress has been tapped to star in a Spanish-language series based on the best-selling bookEl fin del amor:Querer y cogerfrom Argentinian author Tamara Tenenbaum.
Born and raised in an Orthodox Jewish community in the heart of Balvanera, Tenenbaum learned the affective and sexual customs of the secular world as an anthropologist who discovers the ways of being and doing of an unknown civilization. Starting from feminist philosophy and militancy, from conversations with friends and companions, and from the attempt to turn one’s own body and experience into a laboratory of personal and collective reflection, Tenenbaum explores the challenges that young people face today at the beginning of their lives as adults.
The project hails from MGM International Television as part of the company’s Latinxcontent initiative.
Launched last year, MGM International Television is dedicated to developing culturally rich programming with Latinx talent both in front of and behind the camera for English- and Spanish-speaking audiences around the world.
Esposito has previously starred in the telenovelas Chiquititas, Floricientaand Casi Ángeles. She’s part of the upcoming animated feature Trolls World Tour.
MGM International Television is developing Tacowood, a comedy series headlined and produced by the 44-year-old Spanish actress.
Based on an original idea by Spanish writer-producer-director Frank Ariza, Tacowoodis a modern-day comedy that follows Guada (Vega), a 40-year-old single mother who spends her days running her family’s taco truck business in the outskirts of Mexico City as she embarks on the journey of a lifetime with her mother and 10-year-old daughter to pursue her dream of becoming a Hollywood actress.
