Rafael de la Fuente, a supporting player on Fox’s smash hit drama “Empire,” has signed for representation with Latin World Entertainment, the management and marketing company run by Sofia Vergara and Luis Balaguer.
The Venezuelan actor is known for his roles in telenovelas and the Nickelodeon Spanish-language series “Grachi.” He also appeared in the English-language rendition of that series, “Every Witch Way.”
Latin World Entertainment is intent on capitalizing on the booming market for Hispanic talent in all areas of media. The shingle specializes in spearheading branding, publicity and endorsement deals for its clients, in addition to traditional talent representation.
“We are excited to add (de la Fuente) to the LWE roster of outstanding Hispanic talent that is changing the face of TV,” said LWE manager Mari Urdaneta.
