Let’s just say Ryan Seacrest, Sisanie and Tanya Rad were equally smitten with William Levy 😂 The hunk stopped by On Air With Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday, December 4, and left Tanya Rad speechless while she attempted to read “Miss Tati’s” daily horoscopes. The actor-turned-producer also played a round of card game “Do You Know Me?” and revealed the motivation behind his crossover, Spanish-language film En Brazos de un Asesino, in which he stars, co-wrote, and co-produced under his production company William Levy Entertainment.
En Brazos de un Asesino, which translates In the Arms of an Assassin, is an action-romance in which Levy stars as a cold blooded assassin. The film is based on a book series, but the project is just the beginning for the actor’s production company, which he teased has three more projects on the way.
“It says a lot about what Cubans go through in our country and it’s based on a true story,” Levy teased of a future project. “Everybody will feel related to this and it shows in a way what my country is going through that people don’t know about it and I want to be a voice.”
Levy continued that he grew up in a small fisherman town called Cojímar and as a little boy, attempted to flee Cuba.
“It was hard to see myself doing anything back then because you have no future,” Levy recalled. “You have no freedom at all and I was only thinking how to get myself on a boat and leave the country. … [And] at 14 I did,” he added. “I wasn’t lucky enough; I spent like 40 hours on the ocean and then they took us back to Cuba. I saw the boat and I was like, ‘Yes! I’m here! Take me to the USA, please!’ And it was a Cuba coast guard.”
The forthcoming project, Levy added, “has a lot from this, not my story, but what we go through which is very similar.”
While the actor’s brave past has yet to explored on-screen, his smoldering good looks are undeniable and in person, Tanya Rad couldn’t keep it together 😂
“Are you nervous?” Ryan interrupted Tanya as she attempted to read the daily horoscopes in front of Levy. “That wasn’t the smoothest I’ve heard you before so are you a little nervous?”
Tanya hilariously admitted that yes, she was nervous.
“I’m not going to lie,” Tanya said. “I’m a little intimated by you — it’s like you’re looking into my soul!”
Levy joked that while he has that “typical stare” he only kills in the movies 😂😂😂
Watch back the full interview above to relive the LOL moment and to watch Levy play card game “Do You Know Me?” with the team.
Catch En Brazos de un Asesino in theaters on Friday, December 6.
