Actor Efraín Villa talks about playing “Uncle Mondo” on Primo.
Primo on Amazon Freevee tells the story of sixteen-year-old Rafa who lives in San Antonio with his mom. Rafa has five uncles who are also a big part of his life. Sometimes Rafa (the delightful Ignacio Diaz-Silverio) struggles with so much input from so many relatives, but at the heart of it is a family that is loyal and loving. The uncles bring so much humor to the story with their unique personalities, sibling rivalry and all hoping to give Rafa the best advice.
Interestingly, sometimes the uncles (Jay, Mondo, Rollie, Mike and Ryan) learn a thing or two from their nephew. And they certainly listen to Rafa’s mom, their sister Drea, played impeccably by Chistina Vidal. In addition to laugh out loud humor, the show offers a lot of good will and appreciation for family.
I spoke with actor Efraín Villa about his portrayal of Rafa’s free spirited Uncle Mondo. Uncle Mondo marches (with or without shoes) to the beat of his own drum. He is compassionate and thoughtful about the world and his family. And while Mondo is chill most of the time, even he can be rattled at times. Find out more in our conversation!
Tune in to hear what Efraín has to say about the new Amazon Freevee original comedy series and portraying Uncle Mondo. And stay tuned for one more “uncle” interview to come!
