One of last year’s most pleasant surprises of new series came from the freshman comedy series The Bear, centering on an award-winning young chef, played by Critics’ Choice winner Jeremy Allen White, who returns to his hometown of Chicago to revamp his family’s crumbling sandwich shop. Among the boisterous gallery of characters that help keep the restaurant running is Tina, played by this week’s guest Liza Colón-Zayas, a line cook with no filter who she describes as part “mama bear” and part “general”.

5/31/2023
When an injury ended his dreams of playing soccer on a professional level, Cristo Fernández decided to tackle his other dream: filmmaking and acting. Little did he know that the perfect opportunity would come along in which he could combine all of his talents in a single role, Ted Lasso fan favorite Dani Rojas. “I never imagined when I dreamed of being a soccer player that it would come back to me in this way, but I was always open thanks to my friends and family who pushed me to study and find something else.

Now here I am doing the two things I love the most in my life.” You can stream seasons one through three of Ted Lasso on Apple TV+ 🖥 Read more from MediaVillage - www.mediavillage.com 📸 Follow us on Instagram - www.instagram.com/mediavillagecom 🐦 Follow us on Twitter - www.twitter.com/mediavillagecom 👍 Like us on Facebook - www.facebook.com/mediavillagecom --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/mediavillage/message

They wanted me to know what it was like to be a normal teen, but I was always around sets and backstage. I’d go to auditions with them and help them run lines.
