The new ABC drama Will Trent stars Ramón Rodríguez – an Atlanta native who had a difficult childhood growing up in a foster care system.
He could have turned to the dark side, but instead Trent had the will to end up on the right side of the law and became a top detective with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
Rodríguez began his professional acting career in 2005 and now stars and produces in Will Trent. He says he’s grateful to work with talented artists and tries to honor the roles he’s stepping into.
“I think being in a situation where you feel so helpless – I think for him you’re right, you can go in several directions. I think for Will, he decided he wanted to be part of a solution. Somehow, I think he wanted to help others,” Rodríguez said.
He says that Will keeps people in check and that his character is a bit of a neurotic, obsessive-compulsive person.
“You know, not many people like him. He doesn’t care and I think that’s a lot, those qualities are just really interesting,” he said.
Will Trent is now streaming on Hulu, and you can catch new episodes Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
The Walt Disney Co. is the parent company of Hulu and this ABC network.
