Ryan Carnes (Lu­cas) is still spin­ning from his ex­pe­ri­ence star­ring in Mex­ico’s big-screen win­ter block­buster, La Boda de Valentina. “Be­ing in Mex­ico City for the pre­miere was a whirl­wind,” grins the ac­tor. “It was the first time I walked around and saw my face on bill­boards and bus stop signs. It was very ex­cit­ing. And we’re re­ally happy with how the movie turned out and how it did. Within the first month, it landed in the Top 10 gross­ing Mex­i­can films of all time! So it’s a big suc­cess, in that sense.” The bilin­gual film, which saw Carnes speak­ing English, has also opened more doors south of the bor­der. “I did an­other film down there,” he re­veals. “When I went down to do some pre­lim­i­nary press for La Boda, I ended up read­ing for an­other Mex­i­can pro­duc­tion shoot­ing there. It’s a re­make of the clas­sic French film Belle de Jour. It’s in­ter­est­ing, the way things are go­ing. I get to be the ugly Amer­i­can in Mex­i­can movies! Yo hablo po­quito es­pañol. I ac­tu­ally put down an au­di­tion tape in Span­ish, so I’m learn­ing.”

Carnes is in de­mand all over the place!
