Recently we got to interview Antonio Jaramillo. Antonio is an actor who can be seen playing Miguel Zepeda, Jennifer Lopez’s ex on the New Hit Show NBC’s Shades of Blue.
Growing up, Antonio did not know that he wanted to be an actor. Acting found him when he needed it the most. “As a young child, I had a need to communicate and express myself. I found the outlet to be in the theatre. Someone gave me the opportunity to be on stage and I started doing plays and from there it kept going. “
There are many children who could benefit from having different programs with the arts like it did for him. “The arts help children. It helps them express themselves in a way they are not able to verbally with words.”
From the stage to filming, he enjoys both and finds the benefits from both. He has been on many shows including; TNT’s “Dallas”, “The Mentalist”, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”, and “Veronica Mars” to name a few.
An area he would like to explore, “I am a big fan of political shows. To me, The West Wing was the best show ever. “ He also loves “House of Cards”. Antonio is also interested in a role with the topic of religion.
Filming has taken Antonio to different locations including New York City for “Shades of Blue”. “I love New York.” He is a big fan of the city. “It is full of life and a melting pot in every possible way. I think it is an exciting city.
When he is not acting he has many interests including tennis, spending time with his children, and experiencing other types of art. “Art is something I find interesting and without the arts our lives would be very empty.”
Tune in to NBC’s “Shades of Blue” – Thursdays 10pm/9c to see Antonio in his role as Miguel.
