When an injury ended his dreams of playing soccer on a professional level, Cristo Fernández decided to tackle his other dreams: filmmaking and acting. Little did he know that the perfect opportunity would come along in which he could combine all his talents -- portraying 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," he says in this edition of Multicultural TV Talk. "I learned discipline and hard work from the sport, being an athlete, and using it in my new dreams as an actor and filmmaker. Now here I am doing the two things I love the most in my life."
