Salvador Zerboni, with his pale blond hair and intense blue eyes, stars as strong-willed DEA agent Bill Smith. Zerboni remembers when he was the only Mexican studying at the famous Actor’s Studio in New York City, and some of his classmates questioned how he could afford his classes. “They called me the apple picker,” he recalls. He feels redeemed, since he says nowadays he is the only one of that class who is working steadily and has starred in more than 14 productions.
