This is the trailer we’ve all been waiting for! Inigo announced back in October that he joined the cast of FOX’s newest show, Monarch. This will be his first major debut on US television and we couldn’t be any more excited. This is a huge step not only for Inigo, but for FOX as they make a significant impact in diversifying the cast with a Filipino actor as one of the leads, and an inspiration to others as they look to crossover into Hollywood.
The network released a new trailer that features Inigo alongside the cast. The show stars Susan Sarandon and Anna Friel. Monarch is a multi-generational musical drama that centers around the Romans, America’s first family of Country music.
In an interview with ABS-CBN, Inigo talked about how he’s been working on perfecting the Texan accent for his role. According to Deadline, he’ll play the character of Ace Grayson, a talented and sensitive 18 year-old, who was adopted from an orphanage by Nicky (Friel) and her husband, Clive. Ace looks to follow in the foot steps of his country star grandfather. He is your total entertainer with all the swag he brings in his performances. Inigo mentioned how his time on ASAP helped him grow his confidence on stage which he tapped into for his character.
We’re not long now until the 2-night Monarch premiere. The first episode debuts on January 30, 2022 after the NFC Championship game and the second episode airs February 1, 2022. Make sure to clear your schedule and tune in!
