Henri Esteve talks to Carlos Amezcua about playing Javi in “grown-ish” who is dating Ana (Francia Raisa) on the show. Esteve tells BEONDTV that this is the first time he’s been able to play a character that’s like him in real life. Javi is a first generation, Cuban-American, raised in Miami, much like Esteve.

Plus how Esteve is using his voice to help amplify the voices of the people of Cuba and their plight.

Watch “grown-ish” on Freeform and Hulu.
