When you first meet him, he can be intimidating, but then you realize he is just the 'bad boy with the golden heart'.

This soon segued into a true passion for acting and it’s craft after working side by side with actor Joaquin Phoenix and observing his process in the film Two Lovers.

During the two-year program, Maggie Flanigan and Charlie Sandlan have trained Pedro for Meisner acting.
