Fall TV Preview
Quantico Season 2 Aaron Diaz

Quantico: Telenovela Star Aarón Díaz Cast as 'Thrill-Seeking' Photojournalist

It’s a good thing the men and women of Quantico are so photogenic, because they’re about to have a professional shutterbug in their midst.

Aarón Díaz (Tierra de Reyes) will take on the major recurring role of “thrill-seeking photojournalist” León Velez in Season 2 of the ABC drama, TVLine has learned.

León’s official character description also notes that he has “no home or life outside his backpack” — which makes it rather easy for him to spend the night, we’re guessing?

Díaz will debut in the season premiere (airing Sunday, Sept. 25) and stick around for several episodes; the actor posted a photo from the first episode’s table read to his Instagram account last week.

Ya estoy listo…ustedes? I'm ready… You ready? @abcquantico

    So, is it the bad writing or the bad acting, or both on this show? I tried the premiere, but I couldn’t get through it. Did it get worse?

    • dan says:

      Yes to all of the above! Bad writing, bad acting and it got worse as the season progressed. However, they all looked great with flawless hair and make-up (even when on the run and/or injured), and they filled out their Henleys perfectly.
