Cuban actor William Levy returned to the soap operas after trying his luck in Hollywood. He personifies the iconic Sebastian in the new version of “Café con Aroma de Mujer” broadcast by Telemundo.
Cuban artist William Levy turned 40-year-old and was disillusioned with Hollywood yet he is back to the soap operas. This genre gave him international fame and made him a heartthrob in Latin America and the United States. And he is now the lead character of the new version of the soap opera “Café con Aroma de Mujer”
“A moment comes when one has to accept things. In Hollywood, they are not ready to understand that Latinos do not fit into any box”, Levy said late last year, when he launched his first restaurant outside Miami.
“They told me that I was too blond to be Latino, too Latino to be American. Yes, there are more opportunities, but they are for those who have an aspect that responds to existing stereotypes,” said the artist, who decided to pause his dreams of being a world film star and premiered as a producer of Latin American films.
The decision was influenced by the arrival of this forties. “A time comes when you have to decide what you want in life, and I realized that I preferred to focus on mine,” Levy said and. added that his current primary professional goal is to do things “in front of and behind the cameras” that enrich the lives of his people.
As a result he created “William Levy Entertainment”, who already presented the film “Killing Sarai” – in the same movie theater that he took refuge in when he arrived newly from Cuba – and is preparing a series of the thriller. He is also in the pre-production stage of the comedy “The Last Canadian Virgins”.
His first telenovelas
William Levy’s last soap opera was “La Tempestad” in 2013. The actor made it clear in multiple statements that although he was “grateful” for such productions, he was not interested in being “a hearthrob” any more eventhough his beginnings were in 2003, as part of “Protagonistas de novela”, in Telemundo.
After doing some secondary roles in Miami, Levy became one of most beloved Televisa actors in Mexico. Between 2008 and 2011 he starred in “Cuidado con el ángel” with Maite Perroni, “Triunfo del amor” with Jacqueline Bracamontes and “Triumph of Love” with Liliana Abud.
Coffee of the 21st century
“The Single Moms Club”, “Addicted” and “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” were some of the projects he did in Hollywood. His return to the genre comes courtesy of a new version of the legendary “Café con aroma de mujer,” the soap opera that drove the careers of Colombia’s Margarita Rosa de Francisco and American Guy Ecker in 1994.
Levy plays the iconic Sebastian character who maintains the lead’s characteristics of the original version. His character listens to “Gaviota” singing while working, which is why he approaches her and both fall in love. From there, a love story is untied that must overcome thousands of obstacles.
A family man
In “Protagonistas de novela”, the actor also met the woman who remains his partner, the Mexican actress and model Elizabeth Gutiérrez, who is the mother of his two children: Christopher 14 and Kailey 10.
The four moved during the beginning of the pandemic to the house of their dreams, which they had built especially for them. From time to time, he uses the social platform TikTok challenging his children and shares Instagram videos of his life.
