NEW GIG FOR Y&R ALUM

Soap Opera Digest - - COMINGS AND GOINGS -

■ Miles Gas­ton Vil­lanueva (ex-luca, Y&R) has landed a re­cur­ring role on Fox’s THE

RES­I­DENT as a new doc­tor named Alec.

“I’ll be pinch­ing my­self for a while with this one,” the ac­tor posted on In­sta­gram. “To be part of a show like @theres­i­den­ton­fox, and to por­tray a char­ac­ter as col­or­fully and in­tri­cately writ­ten as Doc­tor Alec Shaw, leaves me full of such grat­i­tude and ex­cite­ment. I can’t re­mem­ber the last time I was so thrilled to step into a role. In my own life, I find my­self want­ing to find ways to help peo­ple, near and far. So, to get to play some­one on TV who wants to help peo­ple, re­ally help, is such a great gift. If you are not watch­ing this show, you re­ally should be. It of­fers in­cred­i­bly top­i­cal and cru­cial sto­ry­telling about our flawed health­care sys­tem, and I can see al­ready that the en­tire group, from top to bot­tom, is so good in heart, and so ded­i­cated to such work and each other. It is an honor to be wel­comed into this TV fam­ily.”
