In ‘Montecristo’, Levy plays the enigmatic Alejandro Montecristo, whose sudden appearance in the public eye is cause for concern among the world’s elite, to whom his past and the origins of his fortune are a complete mystery. He is the founder and CEO of a new technological company which becomes the source of much interest and envy for many, including Fernando Álvarez Mondego, a businessman connected with the Spanish aristocracy who wants to acquire the Montecristo company. What Fernando doesn’t know is that he and Montecristo met many years ago and the reason for his recent appearance is motivated purely by revenge.
“The story of the Count of Montecristo has appealed to me ever since I was a young boy. He is a mysterious character driven by his pursuit of justice and revenge, two powerful themes with universal relevance. I’m thrilled to be working with Secuoya Studios and PantaYa to tell this story in a way that has never been done before”, said William Levy.
