Dish of the Week number 82, is Santiago Cabrera.
Over the last few weeks I have been getting caught up in the new Series ‘Star Trek: Picard’
I have to say that it’s been getting better and better each week.
One character has stood out for me (OK two, but we’ll get to the other one in a bit). Cristobal Rios, the Captain of the ship that Picard commandeers to help in his quest, and played by Santiago Cabrera. He also plays all the emergency holograms on board the ship, which gives Santiago and wonderful playing field.
Mr Cabrera has been on my radar since 2006 when he was one of the ‘original’ heroes in the TV Series ‘Heroes’.
He played Isaac Mendez whose super power was being able to paint visions of the future. The only downside was that he could only do it while he was high!
It was one of his paintings that helped to coin the phrase ‘Save the cheerleader, save the world’.
Since then, he keeps cropping up in things that I watch from time to time, like, ‘The Musketeers’, where he played Aramis, and I have to say that this look was extremely hot!
He also played Lancelot in ‘Merlin’
Anyway, I look forward to seeing more of his character in ‘Picard’
It’s going to be fun to see how many emergency holograms they can come up with!!
I can’t leave this blog without a special mention for another character in ‘Picard’.
Elnor, a Romulan played by Evan Evagora.
Evan Evagora is just a baby!!
At 23, and much like Timothee Chalamet, he’s a little too young to be on my radar. So he will just get a special mention here and also, much like Timothee Chalamet, I will watch his career with interest.
