It’s a new Dawn for Maurice Compte…
The Cuban American actor has joined the cast of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series for Season 3.
Compte will portray Brassa, a mysterious, Rasputin-like figure who takes on the outlaw Gecko brothers on Robert Rodriguez’s television take on his cult 1996 film for his El Rey Network.
Season 3 will continue the Gecko brothers’ saga as they fight their way through the world of culebras, the vampire-snake hybrids that control hidden empires in Texas and Mexico.
Seth (D.J. Cotrona) and Richie (Zane Holtz) made a run for the border two years ago and ran headlong into a bar full of bloodsuckers and bandits, facing off with the vampire goddess Santánico (Eiza Gonzalez). The Geckos joined her cause, and they settled an old score. It won them a place in the culebra world. Now that world is about to explode, and new enemies are gathering – dark forces hell bent on destruction and domination. It’s up to the Geckos to stop them, but they can’t do it alone.
Compte appeared in the Netflix series Narcos and guested this year on Hawaii Five-O and Rush Hour.
He recently wrapped roles in the features Going Under and The True Memoirs of an International Assassin.
