NEW GIG FOR Y&R ALUM
■ 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.”
