'Grand Hotel' star Lincoln Younes talks about Danny and Alicia's forbidden romance: 'I think he does really like her'
Lincoln Younes sat down with MEA WorldWide for an exclusive interview and shed some scoop on Danny and Alicia's romance
'Grand Hotel' that recently premiered on ABC is one among the biggest hits this summer.
The drama which airs every Monday after 'The Bachelorette' is filled with mystery and curiosity. 'Grand Hotel' features the "last family-owned hotel" of Santiago Mendoza (Demián Bichir) on a multicultural Miami Beach. While Mendoza owns and runs the hotel, his second wife Gigi Gigi (Roselyn Sanchez) and kids who are adults now enjoy his success.
27-year-old actor Lincoln Younes --who plays the role of Danny, a waiter on the series-- enters the Riviera Grand Hotel for one major reason to investigate the disappearance of his sister who was also working at the hotel. His role is quite mysterious since you don't know what his intentions are.
Younes sat down with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) for an exclusive interview and shed some scoop on Danny and Alicia's forbidden romance. Talking about his character's relationship with Alicia, Danny shares, "I think he does really like her. Yeah without giving too much away. He came to the hotel with his, you know priority to find out what happened to his sister and that is his, you know, one focus and then Alicia into the picture and there was this chemistry in this connection that he did not expect."
Adding to that he said, "They are from two different worlds, you know, she's in the penthouse, he's below the hotel carrying dishes. So there's a lot going against them. But that's kind of the best romance. I think to watch this forbidden, you know from two different worlds trying to make something work that maybe shouldn't but inevitably hopefully it will."
Talking about working with Denise, he said, "I love working with Denise. She is one of the most talented kind quirky people I've ever met and so every day on set was like a new kind of Adventure and we play and it was great."
Describing the forthcoming episodes this season, Younes unveiled, "The episodes keep building until it reaches fever pitch and just when you think you know, everything there is to know about the characters it flips and you don't. And yeah It's just going to keep building up until the finale and you don't actually know what any of the characters are really up to. So stay tuned."
'Grand Hotel' airs every Monday at 10 pm after The Bachelorette season 15 on ABC. Check your local listings for more information.
