A photo of him on a white horse was enough for him Carlos Pedevilla When he was five, he was selected to cast a casting among 50 other children to play the character of the friend of I drive the Duck in Violin key. At that moment it was Lorena’s sister, with the authorization of her mother Edilma, who had sent the photograph by letter. Some time later, they called his home to let him know that they wanted to meet him and that they needed a camera test.
However, he failed to do the casting: when his mother took him, a producer chose him as soon as she saw him, without even hearing him speak. “I love him,” he said, pointing at it. “He was chubby, cheeky and had freckles. My face has attracted a lot of attention. “ensures by communicating with Television show the actor who turns 40 today.
His debut was as part of the cast of the novel from which great actors like Leonardo Sbaraglia, Cecilia Dopazo, Pablo Rago, Emiliano Kaczka, which today is far from acting. Then, Carlos did not yet know how to read and his mother’s role was fundamental: she read him the script and he repeated each sentence What should I say in fiction? “I cried when he didn’t come out. She was self-demanding from a young age. I wanted him to come out as he should be, ”he remembers those who learned to read sometime later.
Thus began the beginning of Carlos’ career as an actor, who continued to work on other projects such as The blue tree, High comedy, Heart of plaster -with Flavia Palmiero-, The babysitting club -with Nicholas Cabré, Facundo Espinosa, gift from heavenY Chiquititaswith the remembered and loved Romina Yan.

At the age of 18, after being part of the telenovela Telefe, the actor had to make an important decision for his future. “I had to choose whether to continue on television or start working on something else”remember who ended up choosing to hold an administrative position in Deliberative Council of the Municipality of Vicente Lópezwhere he has been working for 22 years.

In the meantime, he never abandoned that actor who made his debut at the age of five. Nor does his love for art. In 2012, a friend invited him to do a radio show that lasted seven uninterrupted seasons until he had to leave “for personal reasons”. At that time he was on the other side of the microphone: he was doing the interviews and not the protagonist, as he was used to being. “The first few notes were a bit harsh, I’m not going to say no.”
And in 2017 he returned to acting: he did the show Carlo’s aunt, in whose first season she played the grandson, and in the second, the following year, she was a waitress. Then he had another project in mind, but the coronavirus pandemic first forced him to suspend it and then have to put it aside.

“It was one of the best things in such a sad pandemic”highlights the project in which he plays alongside Alberti and in which he shares the cast with Walter Benítez, Selva Mangialavori, Florencia Acuña and Elizabeth Benitez.
And speaking of his mother again, Carlos makes a special exception when referring to public complaints made by some actors of Cebollite on the alleged mistreatment of the child in plaster for that time. “I have never had any problems, they have always treated me well.. And if something happened, my mom was there and she had a lot of character. If she had seen something, she would have entered ”, stressed those who were not part of that child-adolescent fiction.

I want him to do what he wants and I will accompany him. “
