Another Round, Episode 63: Heben's Husband (with Jaime Camil)
Jaime Camil (Jane the Virgin) talks about his childhood, his days as a pop star, and performing in Broadway's Chicago. Plus, a history lesson on Latin pop artists, and "crossover" really means.
If you're wondering why this show is called "Heben's Husband," it's because they are kind of sort of married!* Just look at this happy couple!!
The story of their love is one for the ages.
If you listen to the show, you know that Heben is a huge fan of Jane the Virgin, which stars Jaime Camil as Rogelio de la Vega. A year ago Heben wrote about her love of Jaime an article about Jaime that enumerates all of his wonderful qualities.
And so he surprised her one day at the BuzzFeed offices and the rest is history. Beautiful!
Here are some fun facts about Jaime during our interview:
1. He used to work in biohazard waste management.
2. He became super duper famous in Mexico after becoming the protagonist in the Mexican version of Ugly Betty.
3. He loves Broadway and is currently playing Billy Flynn in Chicago.
4. He does NOT let his kids act up at the dinner table!
5. He had an incredible music career that we can thank for amazing footage of him crooning and dancing sexily.
I mean just look at this music video. This is art.
