Miami Liftoff: Alberto Rosende

Locals who are soaring

If he looks familiar, it’s because this St. Thomas Aquinas of Fort Lauderdale grad went on to New York University’s Tisch School of the arts and quickly landed a recurring role on NBC’s Chicago Fire. Now, Rosende is the first US Spanish-speaking ad for Old Spice titled, “Never let a friend lose his swagger.” He recently visited Miami, where he spoke with us from Verde, the restaurant inside the Pérez Art Museum Miami.

Favorite thing to do in Miami: “Have Cuban food, empanadas and café con leche, it’s the cuisine I can’t find anywhere else. Even if they have it, it’s not the same.”

On the Old Spice campaign: “I feel super excited and connected to the message. As we get older, making time for your friends gets harder. This inspires confidence and the sense of adventure with your friends.”

On Chicago Fire: “They put us through training at the Chicago Fire Academy. Those men do not take this lightly. They put anything on the line for the citizens they serve.”
