The Jane the Virgin star kicks back to talk about Rogelio de la Vega, Jane, Xiomara, Petra and more! Plus he walks me through his action-packed road to success and a tough life lesson he recently learned.
You’ll flip for the La Fea Mas Bella actor, musician and animated voice actor (Coco! Elena of Avalor!) … as if you haven’t already! :)
I’ll interview you.
(Or someone in your family.)
For a limited time, you can score a Really Famous-style interview.*
I’ll interview anyone you like — your grandma, dad, sister, co-worker, cousin, daughter, boss, you!
I’ll do my research, interview her/him/you and record it just like I do for all my Really Famous episodes.
Then I’ll give it to you so you can listen to it on your phone, computer, iPad, Alexa speaker, smart TV, you name it.
Give it as a gift. Or keep it as a family heirloom.
It’s fun. It’s fascinating. It’s forever.
*This is a private, personalized episode that will not air publicly on Really Famous.
