Although Vinicius Machado initially dreamed of becoming a soccer player, he soon realized that acting was his calling after he was cast in his high school play. It wasn't long before he landed a role on Nickelodeon's Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide and started his blossoming Hollywood career.

Now, the Brazilian actor is one of the cast members of Starz' anticipated new series, Power. He plays Nomar Arcielo, a Latino member of the Soldado Nation gang, who finds himself in an intense conflict with the FBI. In the midst of it all, Nomar also struggles to salvage his risky relationship with his boss's daughter. Machado said he was delighted to take on such a complex role.

"I get boxed into the stereotype of the gangster role so for me, being able to stretch that box to the extreme and being able to show different colors was a great opportunity for me," he told Enstars a few days before the season 1 premiere.

The drama-packed series is also produced by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, whom Machado spoke very highly of. "He had nothing but encouraging words to me all the time," Machado said of the rapper. "He's just a humble guy."

The 31-year-old also has several more projects on the way, including Sunken City, a film that is available on digital download as well as the musical feature Swaggy, which is in pre-production.
