Raphael Alejandro has been playing Hugo for over five years, originating the role in the 2017 movie How to Be a Latin Lover and then reprising the role in Apple TV +’s Acapulco.

I talked to Raphael about playing Hugo since he was a child, what he has learned from Eugenio, his favorite 80s trend, and if he’s team Julia or Isabel.

Check out my interviews with Enrique Arrizon (“Máximo”), Fernando Carsa (“Memo”), Camila Perez (“Julia”), Chord Overstreet (“Chad”), Vanessa Bauche (“Nora”), Regina Reynoso (“Sara”), Jessica Collins (“Diane”), and Rafael Cebrián (“Hector”) here.

Acapulco Season 2 is now on  Apple TV + with new episodes every Friday.
