The Young and the Restless actor, Jordi Vilasuso is celebrating his first year anniversary as Rey Rosales on the CBS daytime drama. Vilasuso is also celebrating 19 years in daytime television having debuted as Tony Santos on Guiding Light on August 29, 2000.
In 2003, he won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal on GL. Vilasuso was also nominated in the same category in 2002.
Vilasuso's soap life continued in November 2010 when he was signed on to play the contract role of Griffin Castillo on the soap opera All My Children. Vilasuso joined the cast of Days of Our Lives as Dario Hernandez in 2015. In July 2017, Vilasuso announced his departure from Days of Our Lives. In July 2018, it was announced that Vilasuso would appear as Rey Rosales on the daytime soap opera The Young and The Restless and he made his debut on August 17, 2018.
Rey first appeared investigating JT Hellstrom’s (Thad Luckinbill) disappearance. He made contact with Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case), who had ties to JT’s case. He quickly became interested in the mysterious charity meetings between Sharon, Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott), Victoria (Amelia Heinle), and Phyllis (then played by Gina Tognoni). Rey also encountered his younger brother Arturo Rosales (Jason Canela), who still held resentment towards him. He reconnected with his younger sister Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle), and she helped him and Arturo reconcile. Sharon became suspicious of Rey when she saw that he had a gun and soon learned he was a detective. Rey helped Sharon fix the plumbing at Crimson Lights, and Sharon thanked Rey by giving him free coffee for a month. Rey mentioned he had a wife back in Miami and had always wanted to be a father, but his wife was against it.
