Will participate in 'Welcome to Eden'

He considered that this is the result, in part, of the magic of the platforms of
streaming, which allow you to open windows in different parts of the globe. “If there is something that I love about these platforms, it is that they have made us feel for the first time, at least in our profession, that the world is very small and that your work no longer has limits,” he said.

“That means that Spanish actors, for example, can work in a Colombian series and that Colombian actors do it in a Spanish one.
It is a way of uniting the world, we are all one, let's get together and make good productions», he added about it.

Torres knows exactly what he is talking about, and that is that he will participate in the second season of 'Welcome to Eden', a series by a Spanish company that
premiered this year on Netflix. Part of the filming of 'Welcome to Eden' also took place on the island of Lanzarote, which
will also host the recording of the new installment.

«I am very happy, surrounded by a wonderful cast, extremely talented, where there is also a Mexican partner, an Argentine actor... So, I am happy to enter as that Colombian part, the Colombian was needed in the production, now it is complete», he jokes, while declaring himself a "fan" of Spanish series. "Hopefully more projects come here in Spain," he said.

"Streaming platforms have made us feel for the first time, at least in our profession, that the world is very small and your work no longer has limits"

His role as Charly Flow

The actor confessed that Charly Flow is the character that has given him the most joy: "It has given me very important international recognition, it has brought me surprises, new things to my career and very nice moments, I hope it continues."

One of the most outstanding aspects of the character is his evolution, his passage from darkness to light or, as he defines it, “from hate to love”. "I was very concerned about how people were going to receive the character in this second season, if they were really going to believe in changing him, it was a challenge," he said.

«When we signed to do the second season, I didn't have a script in hand and in my head I thought it was going to be Charly's revenge, that it was going to be twice as bad, and I find myself with the surprise of a completely new Charly ;
it was like starting work from scratch, I had a lot of nerves», he added.

The challenge, endorsed by the numerous followers of the series, was overcome by far, "in the fifth chapter -of the second installment- people were already connected, believed in the change of the character and went on skates".
