Kimmy Gibbler’s bringing along some very handsome baggage when she moves into Fuller House next year.
Juan Pablo Di Pace (Dallas) will recur on the Netflix revival series as Kimmy’s ex-husband Fernando, TVLine has learned exclusively. As we previously reported, Fernando — with whom Kimmy shares a daughter named Ramona — is being described as “inappropriately passionate,” a character trait largely responsible for the couple’s split. Still, he’s “relentless” in his efforts to win Kimmy back.
Di Pace is one of several new additions to the show’s complicated forest of family trees. Last week, TVLine revealed that DJ’s sons will be played by Michael Campion and Elias Harger, while Kimmy and Fernando’s daughter will be played by Soni Nicole Bringas.
Following Dallas‘ conclusion in 2014, Di Pace went on to play Jesus on NBC’s A.D. The Bible Continues; prior to Dallas, he appeared on NBC’s Camp as Miguel Santos. He is repped by Paula Rosenberg (ICA Talent Management) and The Gersh Agency.
