Learn How To Bring Joy with Cristian Soto


I recently had the opportunity to exclusively interview Cristian Soto to learn five random facts about himself and what lesson his character Romario taught him on Bel-Air. Check out my interview with Cristian below:


Loryn: If you had a magic wand, what movie or tv show would you do next?


Cristian: If I had a magic wand and considering that I am a young actor- My magic wand wound would cast me in a superhero movie within a collected franchise! This would be awesome and really cool.


Loryn: Who is an actor or actress you'd like to work with in the future?


Cristian: There are so many iconic and phenomenal actors out there, I would be honored, grateful and humbled to work with any of them. If I had to choose ( in no particular order as they are all great and amazing) I would love to work with the greats like


Male Actors: Mr. Denzel Washington, Mr. Tom Hanks, Mr. Will Smith, and Mr. Kenneth Branagh to name a few great dramatic actors, and also the phenomenal Mr. Dwayne Johnson, Mr. Simi Liu, and Mr. Javier Bardem, working with these gentlemen would be so much fun and relatable to me. If I were to name the great female Actors: I dream of the greats like Ms. Merrill Streep, Ms. Viola Davis, Dame Helen Mirren, Ms. Salma Hayek, and the great Ms. Oprah Winfrey. Others that would be a great dream for me are, Ms. Sandra Oh, Zoe Saldana, Ms. Cassandra Freeman, Ms. Kerry Washington, Ms. Sandra Oh, Ms. Sandra Bullock, Ms. Gemma Chan, Ms. Emma Stone, and Awkwafina to name a few more. As I said, the list is crazy long and nearly impossible to write.


Loryn: What lesson has your character Romario taught you on Bel-Air?


Cristian: The lesson I learned from my Character, Romario is that because he is kind, respectful supportive, and likes to have fun hanging out with his friends. His character is a lot like who I am personally so it was great bringing all of these familiar character traits to Romario. It was as through the writers were writing me into the page. It was a magical experience, really! So much fun! Romario was also my first professional casting that allowed me to work for and with giants in the industry of acting, directing, film and music production. All of these amazing human beings welcomed me as part of the family from day one and gave me the honor of working on this amazing, phenomenal and I believe, historical drama series called- “Bel-Air”. It was an experience for which I will always be grateful to be a part of.


Loryn: What lesson has the entertainment industry taught you so far?


Cristian: So far, I have learned through the entertainment industry, that I can use my talents to bring joy, hope, and understanding/enlightenment to others that see the work that I do. It is my greatest hope that my acting can positively impact the lives of others through great story telling. I absolutely love it.


Loryn: What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?


Cristian: I think people may be surprised to know that I am not only a serious dramatic and comedic actor, who loves to sing and dance but that I am also an illustrator who has won awards for my artwork, which is a great hobby of mine, (I carry a sketch pad with me everywhere I go) and they may also be surprised to know that I am a published author as well. I have published a children’s book that tells a story of a child who uses their imagination to get through a rough time when their father was deployed. I am honored to be the child of a veteran. I have also co-authored a published book on STEM. In this book, kids try to encourage young kids like themselves to get involved with STEM/STEAM- meaning to know that science, technology, engineering, and math can be fun and can be used in all fields of career choices. Particularly, the entertainment industry, in which I have personally experienced the utilization of each element of STEM/STEAM and see its application applied in all aspects.
