chick style Posted June 25, 2006 Share Posted June 25, 2006 Benjamin Rojas (born April 16, 1985 in La Plata, Buenos Aires province, Argentina), is a well known actor. He has also been a music star, being involved in a group, ERREway, that toured across Argentina during the early 2000s. Benjamin Rojas began his professional show business career when he was cast as "Yago" in Cris Morena's production, "Chiquititas", in 1998. His portrait of "Yago", a homeless boy who helps Maria Jimena Piccolo's "Jimena" out of a jungle and in turn gets helped by "Jimena" himself when she takes him to the "Rincon de Luz" orphanage home, gave Rojas much critical acclaim. Rojas spent two years at "Chiquititas", also playing the character of "Bautista Arce". During that span, Rojas became a teen idol in Argentina, the rest of Latin America and even Hungary, where fans of his kept a fan site dedicated to him . After his participation in that teenager oriented telenovela, Rojas went on to reprise his role as "Bautista Arce" in the 2001 "Chiquititas" movie, "Chiquititas: Rincon de Luz". It was in 2002, that Rojas broke through in the music world too. He played "Pablo Bustamante" in the international hit telenovela, "Rebelde Way", also known as ERREway. Rojas, along with fellow former "Chiquititas" actors Camila Bordonaba and Luisana Lopilato, among others, formed part of a music band, also named ERREway, that scored some musical hits and toured across Argentina until well after "Rebelde Way" had stopped recording. By 2004, Rojas was seen acting in yet another Telefe production, "Floricienta", where he played "Franco Fritzenwalden". That same year, ERREway (the group) participated in a film version of "Rebelde Way". "ERREway: 4 Caminos" ("ERREway, Four Ways") was a major Argentine cinema success. Currently, Rojas stars in "Alma Pirata" ("Pirate Soul"). benja.bmp benja.bmp Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
