Looking alum Raúl Castillo is set as a series regular in ABC drama pilot The Death Of Eva Sofia Valdez, from writer Charise Castro Smith and producers Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters. Described as a sexy revenge drama with a supernatural twist and as MacBeth with a Cuban twist, it centers on Eva Sofia Valdez, an immigrant who rose from rags to riches and is a celebrated Miami entrepreneur and a champion for immigrant rights. But her success is fueled by an insatiable ambition that could destroy her family, a vendetta against the lover who betrayed her, and ghosts from the past who threaten to reveal the dark sacrifices Eva Sofia made to attain the American Dream. Castillo, repped by CAA and TMT Management, will play Sebastian, Eva Sofia’s oldest son. He will next be seen in the upcoming Netflix movie Special Correspondents with Ricky Gervais and HBO’s Looking TV movie slated for release this year.
