Saturday Morning Man: Adrian Bellani!
It’s so fun when I come across a Morning Man by accident.
Yesterday, I was Googling a name friend Lorna had suggested and somehow came across a photo of Adrian Bellani!
Quite a stunning man.
He’s 28 years old and best known for his role of Miguel Lopez-Fitzgerald on the NBC soap Passions which has been canceled. (Sadly, there are now only six daytime soaps left now that As the World Turns has ended its run).
Adrian was born in Miami, Florida and is of Italian and Salvadoran descent. He and his family moved to El Salvador when he was a child.
There, Bellani not only competed in international horse jumping competitions, but he won and was invited to compete in the Central America Games representing his country.
Bellani also became a very accomplished volleyball player and once again he found himself invited to participate in the Central America Games. The team that he played for won the Central American tournament.
He was educated at the American School of El Salvador (Escuela Americana), and later returned to the United States to study finance at Southern Methodist University. Shortly after, Salvadoran fashion photographer Roberto Aguilar asked him to be the face of the Toni & Guy Bed Head campaign.
People en Espanol Magazine voted him to be one of the 25 hottest Latin bachelors in the world (2006).
He most recently filmed a role in the movie Moneyball due out next year.
