Cristián, who joined the cast of “Devious Maids” this season, will make his debut on the June 8th episode.
LatinWE alongside Lifetime created a contest where Cristián’s fans, who reside in Miami, would send a photo using the hashtag #CristianBeMyMaidSweeps and share why did they deserve to have the actor, who will bring to life the character Ernesto in the production of Eva Longoria and Marc Cherry, to help with her cleaning duties and invite her to a delicious lunch.
“I am very happy to work on this project and be able to give thanks to a fan for the unconditional support and love. It’s a great way to celebrate this incredible year in my career; I had a great time. I would love to go to other cities and spend time with more fans across the country, maybe in the next season?!,” Cristián shared among laughs with LatinWENews.
He added, “The idea was also to emphasize the great work done by women; most are not only mothers and wives, but professionals with long working hours, who keep their houses beautiful and always make everything look flawless. This was a way to shine the light on all the women who are in my life, thanks to all of them”.
