According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gilles Marini (Switched at Birth) has been promoted to a series regular for the third season of Devious Maids. He first appeared in the second season finale of the primetime soap as music executive Sebastien, who sleeps with Carmen only for her to find out that he’s married.
What will be interesting to see is just how far Carmen is willing to go for her career. While she pulled back when she learned that Sebastien was married, she’s proven herself willing to do anything and everything in her power to make her dreams come true. If Sebastien puts pressure on her to continue their affair if she wants to keep a record deal, that could cause quite a crisis of faith with Carmen; after waiting this long to reach this level in her career, is she willing to give it all up because she’s unwilling to continue sleeping with Sebastien? Or will she decide that this is a small price to pay in order to get to where she wants to go?
In addition to his role on the ABC Family drama, Marini has appeared on the likes of 2 Broke Girls, Hot in Cleveland, and Brothers & Sisters.
The third season of Devious Maids is slated to premiere next year on Lifetime.
