Henri Esteve is the uncle with military knowledge in the new Latin series, Primo. A series created by Shae Serrano based on his own upbringing.
The coming-of-age, single-camera comedy, inspired by Serrano’s life growing up in San Antonio, TX, follows Rafa Gonzales (Ignacio Diaz-Silverio, “Departing Seniors”), a wide-eyed 16-year-old being raised by his clever mother, Drea (Christina Vidal, “See No Devil”), and his five overbearing uncles (Rollie, Mike, Ryan, Jay, and Mondo) as they live their lives on the southside of San Antonio. Rafa is at an inflection point, as three big life moments coincide: he and his friends are nearing the end of high school; he’s pretty sure he just met the girl of his dreams; and he just found out he has a real chance to become the first person in his family to go to college. Over the course of the series, the group—Rafa, his mom, uncles, friends, and crush—will all affect each other and help one another grow in ways they weren’t expecting, whether they like it or not.
The Florida native, Henri Esteve of Cuban roots began his career in theater while attending the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute in New York City. Esteve was part of the cast in plays like Romeo and Juliet, Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie and Homefront. After a while he relocated to Los Angeles to try the small screen and is now known for ABC’s Revenge and Prime Video’s Homecoming. Recently he was seen in Grown-ish.
