    Canto ended up right where he wanted, before becoming an actor his taste for the spotlight began as a musician.

    With his artistic mothers influence in the picture, he became a professional singer at the young age of 16 forming the Delcanto Jazz Band in 2011.

    Shortly after, his luck as an actor followed. Canto success as an actor in independent films and television shows in the United States.

    His first American TV debut was for the drama “The Following,” a series on Fox in 2013 featuring Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy.
