Andres Velez Bio, Age, Girlfriend, Height, Net Worth

ABC’s drama pilot Promised Land hit the screens on January 24, 2022, and there appeared Andres Velez with his first major TV role as an immigrant named “Carlos Rincón.” His character was depicted as one of the contenders eyeing that million-dollar Sonoma Valley’s Vineyard.

Let’s get to know this star a little more as this Andres Velez Bio proceeds.

Andres Velez On Promised Land

Generational wealth can be a gift as well as a curse for some, and this was exactly what made Promised Land so interesting to watch. The series circled Joe Sandoval (owner of Sonoma Valley’s Heritage House Vineyard and the family patriarch) who’s made quite a few enemies on his quest for the American Dream.

So, among the multiple characters wanting a piece of that invaluable vineyard (including Joe’s ex-wife Margaret), Andres’ character “Carlos Rincón” makes it into the scene as Billy’s brother who initially had a plan of his own to take over the winery.

But in his quest to find his brother and work his way upward the winey, Carlos meets Juana Sánchez, a young woman who dreams of becoming a teacher. Together, they then tie their fortunes and pursue a dream of their own.

Carlos will certainly develop into an interesting character in the future, and the proof of it is ABC labeling him as Promised Land’s “lead” on their official page.

Talking about making his debut on a feature film, Andres shared, “My first feature is been a dream come true… It feels like, ‘I don’t need to get paid to do this.’ It’s been the best thing I could have asked for.”

As for what got this actor so interesting in the series was its resemblance to a play. “It reminded me of a play almost. It all takes place in one location, very character-driven, the human iteration between them like beings out the story,” Andres explained.

Joining Andres this season were his co-stars — Bellamy Young (as Margaret Honeycroft), Cecilia Suárez (as Lettie Sandoval), Christina Ochoa (as Veronica Sandoval), Mariel Molino (as Carmen Sandoval), Tonatiuh Elizarraraz (as Antonio Sandoval), and Augusto Aguilera (as Mateo Flores).
