    The entertainment industry is seeing a surge of demand for content across multiple platforms ranging from film to TV to Web.  This content revolution is opening more doors than ever before for Latino actors but historically it's always been challenging for telenovela actors to transition to mainstream U.S. films and TV.

    In this two part session we begin with an in-depth conversation with a top talent agent as well as several Spanish-language telenovela actors who have successfully made the "crossover" into mainstream U.S. films and TV roles.

    Part two of this powerful actor's workshop concludes with a highly respected Hollywood acting coach and manager who will conduct an actor's workshop.
