MUSE TV’s Michael Sandoval talks with Andres Mejia Vallejo about his new series Ghostwriter on AppleTV+ at Zona Rosa Caffe. Vallejo plays the role of the Young Grandpa Ernesto on the show.
When a ghost haunts a neighborhood bookstore and starts releasing fictional characters into the real world, four kids must team up to solve an exciting mystery surrounding the ghost’s unfinished business.
Vallejo was born in Colombia and at the age of 19 he moved to the United States as an immigrant speaking no English and with no family or friends. With one thousand dollars in his pocket and odd jobs he taught himself English and became a US Citizen.
Through many of his odd jobs he found himself as a Junior Publicist for Universal Music Group in Miami where he first stepped into the Hollywood industry. Later he became a television producer for Univision Networks and after seven years he decided to drive cross country and found himself in Hollywood. Well in a Hollywood he entered the television production and was a producer with Bunim Murray Productions. Vallejos took this opportunity to fully grasp the production side of Hollywood and became an accomplished television producer and writer.
After working for Bunim Murray for over 3 years Vallejo decided to quit his career in production to focus on his acting career. It wasn’t easy at first as he went back to odd jobs to find ways to support himself as an actor. However, his dedication and perseverance did allow him to meet the right people and was signed by a great manager. A few months later he was on the set for his first co-star on CW’s Jane the Virgin. Soon after he booked a few leads in different projects and shortly after he booked a leading role in Columbia’s production of Shakespeare in Love, a theater play where he played Ned Alleyn.
