After hearing so much about it, we finally caught an episode of the Spanish series Velvet (it has English subtitles) on Netflix. It's based on a mid-century love story between a young heir of a fashion empire and a humble seamstress. The show is amazing, but we found ourselves admiring more than just the plot. It couldn't have been more than two minutes into Miguel Angel Silvestre's character being introduced... and we were in love. We did what anyone would do, we did a deep exploration of his Instagram.

The finds were so good that we just had to share.

Here's what we learned…

5. Wouldn't Make It as a Bartender: And that's OK. We got to see a behind-the-scenes look at his rehearsals for a scene in Sense8. 

6. Profession Tennis Player: Yes, you read correctly, Silvestre was a professional tennis player, but had to retire due to an injury.

7. Third Language: In this video, he speaks Italian, and we don't know how he could get any sexier after this...but he does.

11. Commercial Man: No big deal. It's him, Irina Shayk, and Javier Bardem. Oh yes, that's right…Penelope Cruz directed it. Again, no biggie.
