Ever since the character of Patrick Blanco was introduced on Élite, viewers have been heavily thirsting over actor Manu Ríos – even though his character is oftentimes a complicated person for fans to root for. In subsequent seasons, Ríos became one of the main cast members on the hit Netflix series.
As Ríos comes back for season six of Élite, he is also slated to star in an upcoming Brokeback Mountain-like film from Pedro Almodóvar starring Pedro Pascal and Ethan Hawke. The movie, titled Strange Way of Life, is set for a 2023 premiere. The actor has also been appearing on Spanish TV shows such as La Edad de la Ira, El Silencio, and Chiringuito de Pepe.
Still, Élite fans are eager to see what will happen to Patrick during season six. There’s a big likelihood that he’ll create even more messes for himself, but certain trailers and clips also suggest that he might be getting a legitimate relationship in the new season and perhaps will be able to slow his roll.
