William Levy: It's Hard For People To Run On New Things

Posted: Updated:

"Have you seen him? It's hard to focus!" Maria's words on the air pretty much summed up how the women in the newsroom reacted to William Levy's appearance on Monday. The hunky telenovela star has added something new to his job title: New Pepsi spokesperson.

Levy talked about the fun he had playing six different characters for the new ad campaign, his upcoming role in the new Tyler Perry movie, and where he wants to go next in his career. What was it like growing up in Cuba before living the American Dream in the United States? William explains how he eventually got to the United States at the age of 14 and is still in shock about how great the United States...calling it the greatest country in the world.

Fun facts about William:

  • Levy was born in Cojimar, Cuba
  • He was invited star in Pasión, his breakthrough in Mexican soap operas. First broadcast in Mexico in June 2008, and began airing in the United States in September 2008 on Univision. It averaged 5 million viewers per evening
  • He was a participant in the 14th season of Dancing with the Stars, with two-time mirror ball champion Cheryl Burke as his dance-pro partner; they finished in third place.
  • Levy is set to star in Tyler Perry's Single Moms Club set for release in 2014.
