Interview: Halston’s Gian Franco Rodriguez

by Leora Heilbronn

Venezuelan actor-producer Gian Franco Rodriguez is a revelation on the Ryan Murphy-produced limited series Halston (now on Netflix). Playing Victor Hugo, the visual artist/prostitute/real-life paramour to iconic designer Roy Halston (portrayed by Ewan McGregor in the series), Rodriguez shines in every scene he’s in, leaving viewers yearning for his next appearance on screen.

I was delighted to get the opportunity to speak over Zoom video with Gian Franco about why the Venezuelan arepas scene was so important to him, his admiration for co-star Ewan McGregor, and why he loves Cersei on Game of Thrones so much.


Halston is currently streaming on Netflix
