Guillermo Diaz: Everyone’s Favorite Badass
Whether he is playing the twisted, but endearing character of Huck on ABC’s hit show Scandal, or taking on the frightful role of a real-life serial killer in his latest TV movie, Guillermo has fans at the edge of their seats. Yet somehow, although he plays dark and frightening characters, he has the unique ability to make you love them. Whenever people see our images of Guillermo, they are always excited to learn more about him. He is possibly the most loved actor that we’ve worked with – appealing to men and women alike, of all ages. Whether he made them laugh (in his earlier comedic work), cry, or scream, he has certainly left an impression. If you meet him in person, you’ll quickly experience his genuine charm and understand how he naturally brings that element to every role that he plays.
One of the Good Ones
We first met Guillermo on this shoot for The Hollywood Reporter’s issue featuring Latinos in Hollywood. The vibe was fashion portrait with an edge to ensure that we got a little bit of darkness for his fans. As you’d expect, he pulled it off seamlessly. His ability to switch immediately from all-out laughter to dark, serious, and sexy is really something to behold. We had an amazing day on set – quick, awesome, and good vibes all around.
We are happy to have kept in touch with him over the years. There are some people that we work with and know that it will be a one-time deal. Everything goes great, but it’s just a good day at work, nothing more personal than that. Others, we share some sort of connection with and make an effort to stay in contact. Whether it’s for future projects or just to have a buddy to grab a bite with, it’s awesome having good quality people in your life. Guillermo is definitely one of them. While we may not see each other as often as we’d like, we enjoy the occasional text, tweet, and lunch. Especially since we have connected outside of the shoot over our shared love of art, passion for political and social issues, and endless cravings for Ethiopian food.
