Diego Boneta’s life may have changed after being cast as Luis Miguel in the Netflix series, but his role as Diego Ramos in the iconic Terminator franchise is one that will stay with him forever. To join legends Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton in Terminator: Dark Fate was something indescribable for the soon to be 29-year-old (his golden birthday is on November 29!) and worth the wait. “The whole process was nerve-wracking, months of auditioning and taping,” he tells HOLA! USA. “The first tape I sent was while I was doing Luis Miguel. After wrapping, they flew us to Dublin for the screen test, and we found out weeks after that that we did get the part.”
Watch the video above to see why this movie was extra special for Diego, what you’d be surprised to hear about the original Terminator star and learn the fate of Luis Miguel: The Series.
Paramount's Terminator: Dark Fate is in theaters now.
