Rafael de la Fuente is founding a new empire of sorts…
The 30-year-old Venezuelan actor has been cast as a series regular on the CW’s Dynasty pilot, a reboot of the iconic 1980s primetime soap.
Co-written by Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Sallie Patrick and directed by Brad Silberling, the new Dynasty follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children.
de la Fuente will play Sam, a cute schemer who has a one night stand with Steven, the rebel son of Blake Carrington (Grant Show).
de La Fuente was recently seen in the praised ABC miniseries When We Rise and recurs on Fox’s Empire as Michael Sanchez.
