Justin Baldoni has become one of American television’s favorite leading men and possesses a unique combination of good looks and good intentions. In the breakout hit, Jane the Virgin, Justin plays cancer survivor and former playboy “Rafael Solano” who often finds himself surrounded by women and controversy.
But, Baldoni is much more than a celebrity with mainstream media success. In addition to acting, Justin is also a prolific director and owner of Wayfarer Entertainment, a digital production company dedicated to “celebrating and elevating the human spirit” through socially-conscious media.
“You watch American television and there’s just so much crap everywhere,” says Justin. “So, we’re just trying to solve that epidemic by creating stuff that people will watch and hopefully be affected by.”
