In life, there are moments of full circle.
As for Arlyn Broche, it happened while he was on the set of NBC’s series Young Rock.
It was 20 years ago when Broache met Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his then-wife Danny Garcia.
Fast forward to today and Broche will portray Garcia in the TV series.
“I’ve done more than 700 auditions over the course of my acting career,” says Bruch. “When I read for the part, they used the name Gabe Diaz. After reading the script and understanding the dynamics, it was an exchange between Danny and Dwayne.”
Young Rock tells the story of Johnson’s humble beginnings to this day, as he became an international superstar.
Season 2 of “Young Rock” delves into Johnson’s life, continuing the events of Season 1, while also introducing new chapters we haven’t yet seen.
As Johnson and his loving and resilient family take on new challenges and meet new wild personalities from professional wrestling, he considers embracing the professional wrestling mill himself.
The show explores the crazy rollercoaster that shaped Johnson into the man he is today and the larger-than-life people he met along the way.
The series will be broadcast at 7 pm on Tuesday, May 17th on NBC. Previous episodes can be streamed on Peacock and NBC on demand.
Broche has been a fan of Garcia’s since the two met.
“Danny is the clincher with all the letters,” says Brosh. “She’s a very impressive businessman. But what I really like about her is her kindness and her originality. When I spoke to her, she was like, ‘Listen, I couldn’t have picked someone better to be on the show.'” She was very reassuring and she’s someone you want to be on your team. Strong Latina and that’s part of the reason I got to know her.”
The series was filmed in Australia at Village Roadshow.
“It was the same place they had filmed ‘Aquaman,'” says Brosh. “It was surreal. I was in a completely different country. Seeing the producers, directors and how well the set was coordinated, was amazing. The way they handled the COVID guidelines was great overall. He took everyone from the cast including me to the show. They really put it together and got it done.”
The daughter of Cuban immigrants, this Miami-born had her own blood, as her father was one of the biggest actors in Cuba.
A talented and creative child, she picked up the acting role at the age of nine, performing the role of Juliet in Shakespeare’s classic ‘Romeo and Juliet’.
“That was part of the gifted program,” she says. “I was playing Juliet and I had no idea what she was talking about.”
She attended Florida International University majoring in Business Administration. One thing led to another, and she decided to change her major to healthcare management, but after a period of working in this field she felt that she was not following her true passion and joined the journalism program in the Financial Intelligence Unit to pursue a career as a talent camera and then to the famous theater department of the school where she was taking Lessons in voice, movement and theatrical crafts.
Since then, Brooch has challenged herself to acting.
“I look for roles that inspire me to step into this world, share a captivating story, and get viewers just to say ‘Wow,’” she says. “I love working in a superhero movie or something like the ‘Avatar’ world. “
Although her dream is to create her own program.
“Where I am in front and behind the camera,” she says.
As her career aspirations continue to grow, she also finds time to be a mother and wife.
“I don’t believe in balance,” she says. “When the career is going well, other things are in jeopardy. When I’m focused and assertive, it’s an all-encompassing thing. I set my eyes on the prize and everything else is shelved right now and then back in. If I’ve been shooting for five or six months, I’m not going to see My family. But I am able to FaceTime with my kids. When I come home, I make sure to spend a lot of quality time with them.”
