Eduardo Verástegui and Bella

Eduardo.jpgEvery now and then I get to conduct a radio interview that I wish the whole world could hear. It’s not that I think I’m a great interviewer it’s more about giving the world the opportunity to hear from someone who is passionate about their mission in life.

This morning I had one of those interviews on 98.5 Sonshine FM.

I hope you’ll take the time to click on the audio player at the bottom of this post and listen. I’m sure you’ll be impressed with my guest. 

From studying law to becoming a model, a singer and an actor, Mexican born Eduardo Verástegui has had a very interesting life.

Movie goers in Australia will soon see Eduardo playing the role of Jose in the award winning movie Bella.

Bella has won numerous awards and honours including the prestigious People’s Choice Awards at the Toronto Film Festival.

I’ve seen a preview DVD of the movie and it is absolutely beautiful. If you get the chance to see this movie … do it.

Bella.jpgEduardo joined me on the phone today to talk about Bella but there was much more to the conversation. He spoke of having integrity and refusing to compromise. It’s something he knows a lot about. He didn’t work for around four years becuase he refused to take acting roles that would stereotype Latinos.

It truly was a pleasure to be able to talk to Eduardo and to hear his passion for the projects he undertakes.
