Stars as Rafael Garcia on ‘The Baker and the Beauty’ (2020)
Created by Dean Georgaris for ABC, The Baker and the Beauty is an American romantic comedy-drama series based on the Israeli show Beauty and the Baker by Assi Azar. The episodes of the original version streamed on Amazon Prime, while the show ranks as one of the greatest in the nation’s television history.
Showrunner Dean Georgaris explained the significant differences between the two versions.
The Israeli show stayed focused primarily on the baker and the beauty, and it was a half-hour show. We were able to expand it for the hour and really make it about the entire family, which sets us apart and lets us do family stories which we can all relate to.
As per IMDb, the premise of the show reads:
A blue-collar baker strikes up a relationship with an international superstar. US version of the Israeli romantic comedy series ‘The Baker and the Beauty’.

Carlos Gomez has played plenty of roles of a married man in reel life, but the same can’t be said for his real life, where his marital status still remains up in the air.
The actor appears pretty low-key when it comes to his personal life; therefore, he’s rarely ever spoken about his potential wife and kids to the media. In fact, there’s no hint of his dating endeavors or likely girlfriend in the public domain nor his official social accounts.
The only recent occasion Gomez’s talked about his ‘wife’ on Instagram is when he referred to Lisa Vidal as his on-screen partner in the latest ABC show. On 14th March 2020, the actor shared a picture with his co-star captioning the post, “My beautiful wife on the pilot #thebakerandthebeauty @thereallisavidal”.
