Born in Mexico, Diego Boneta knew at a very young age that he wanted to be a performer. At the age of 12 he audition for the children’s reality TV show Codigo F.A.M.A., where after conquering a series of challenges made it to the Top 5.
Boneta made his television debut in the Spanish-language children’s telenovela Alegrijes y Rebujos in 2013. He later starred in Misión S.O.S. and played a small role in Don Darvelio’s Secret. He catapulted to success after portraying a high school student named Rocco, in Univision’s hit telenovela Rebelde. The series gave Boneta the opportunity to focus on a music career, subsequently he released his first self-titled album and toured with the newly formed musical group RBD.
I had the privilege of co-producing the Variety Latino’s first annual “10 Latinos To Watch” list where we honored the best up and coming Latino actors and actresses in Hollywood. Among the list were Diego Boneta, Karla Souza, Stephanie Sigman and Luis Gerardo Méndez.
It was an amazing experience! We did everything from choosing the ten, contacting them, setting up their interviews, writing all their profiles, galleries and more. My co-worker, Griselda Flores, and I worked diligently to produce content that would really stand out and honor each of their achievements. Each one came in to our studios to talk about their careers, their start in the industry and what they had learned about being in the industry. You can look at all the coverage by clicking HERE and their videos HERE.
While they had their interviews I took behind-the-scenes pictures and now you can take a look at them!
