Juan Hernangomez: ‘I never dreamed of being an actor’

- by

“I never expected to be in a movie. I never dreamed of being an actor. The pandemic hits. I was at my brother’s place in Charlotte when he was still playing there,” Juan Hernangomez recalled, “We were so bored. Being at home, doing nothing.” “I just did it because my sister wanted to to the videos, to do something as a family,” he described auditioning, “And they started liking it. I don’t know why. And I kept going through the casting process. I was interviewed by the director, the acting teacher, and then Adam [Sandler]. They saw something. They saw talent or whatever it might be. Two years after, we just did the movie.”

Hernangomez, 26, went from starring in the movie and playing the fictional player from Spain, Bo Cruz, to winning the 2022 EuroBasket with Spain. He talked about recent ventures during the preseason Media Day of the Toronto Raptors. “It has been a great summer. First, the movie. We were working for two years on that. It was a success. Then, playing for the national team and winning the European championship with my brother. Seeing my brother get the MVP of the tournament. It was an honor.
