Argentinean star Juan Soler will star in his first role for Telemundo in the new telenovela "Marido en Alquiler."
The Argentine will be joined by Colombian actress Maritza Rodriguez and American Sonya Smith in the production. The project is the first of many for Soler who signed a contract with Telemundo after deciding to leave Mexico and move to Miami with his family.
"Marido en Alquiler" will tell the story of a woman who raises her family alone and through her journey will meet the love of her life. The show will be based off the Brazilian telenovela "Fina Estampa."
Soler explained that he is very happy to work on a TV series that was a huge hit in Brazil and added that his character will fall in love with a woman that will "take away his sleep."
Soler last starred in "Cuando Me Enamoro" alongside Silvia Navarro for Televisa. Sonya Smith was last seen in "Corazon Valiente" while Maritza Rodriguez made an extended appearance in "El Rostro de la Venganza."
The novela will also star Gabriel Coronel ("Relaciones Peligrosas"), Miguel Varoni ("Corazon Valiente"), Kimberly Dos Ramos ("El Rostro de la Venganza") and Roberto Manrique ("Flor Salvaje"). Telemundo will air the work during its 2013-2014 season.
