The actor, who played Juan, a drug dealer in Miami who takes it upon himself to take on a parenting role in a young boy’s life, took the opportunity to praise the character.
“I had so many wonderful teachers, and one thing that they consistently told me .. was it wasn’t about you, it’s not about you. It’s about these characters. You’re in service to these stories and these characters. And I’m so blessed to have had an opportunity. It was about Juan, It was about Chiron. It was about Paula.”
