SANTA BARBARA Sighting! A Martinez To Star In Lifetime Movie With Ugly Betty's Hilda and Scrubs' Carla
One of the most popular leading men in the history of soaps, A Martinez has signed up for a ripped-from-the-headlines Lifetime movie called Little GIrl Lost: The Delimar Vera Story. The movie is based on the real life events surrounding Luz Cuevas, who for six years believed her daughter had died in a Philadelphia apartment fire, only to one day spy the little girl alive and well at a birthday party. Scrubs actress Judy Reyes will play the lead role, with Ugly Betty actress Ana Ortiz playing a relative. Martinez, who shot to fame over 20 years ago as Santa Barbara's top cop Cruz Castillo, will play a city councilman who helps reunite mother and child. Martinez is also known to fans of General Hospital as Bobbie Spencer's one-time lover Roy DiLuca.
