William Levy will stop making telenovelas to concentrate on a new movie project.

The actor told Teleformula that "La Tempestad" would be his last telenovela because the art form took time out of his life. He said, "I think so. It is too much work and as time goes by I'm trying to find new priorities. I want to be with my children and spend more time with them. We will see what happens because it is too much time and tiring."

Levy added that he wanted to concentrate on film because it was less absorbing and it's his passion. Levy also revealed that he will be filming a new movie, which has a very interesting character.

As he finishes "La Tempestad," Levy is gearing up for the premieres of his first two Hollywood films. His first film, "Addicted," will be released in March under Lionsgate, while "Tyler Perry's A Single Moms Club" will be released later in May. With two expected successes, Levy can look forward to a long career in Los Angeles.

Levy returned to the telenovela with "La Tempestad" after an absence from Spanish TV. During his escape from soap operas, he was featured in a music video by Jennifer Lopez and also appeared in two episodes of VH1's "Single Ladies." He was also a participant in the 14th season of "Dancing With The Stars."

Levy was previously seen in "Sortilegio," "Cuidad con el Angel" and "Triunfo del Amor."
