Played By Alberto Rosende
Alberto Rosende stars as Blake Gallo, the likeable, energetic and young daredevil firefighter who is working among Firehouse 51's finest.
Rosende is well known for his starring role as human-turned-vampire Simon Lewis in the Freeform series "Shadowhunters." He was also recently the face of Old Spice's ad campaign entitled "Never Let a Friend Lose His Swagger."
Off screen, he is co-creator of the production company 74th Avenue Films with his filmmaker brother, Diego. Together they produce and direct films that take a deeper look into one's ideology and belief system. Most recently, they traveled 10,000 miles around the United States, asking people of all ages and backgrounds the timely question of "How do you feel being American?" for their documentary film titled "American Identity Project."
On the big screen, he starred in the highly praised short film "Jahar," which premiered at Tribeca Film Festival. The film was made by ex-classmates/friends of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (his nickname was Jahar) and focused on the emotions experienced in the days after the bombings.
Alberto studied at New York University Tisch School of the Arts, graduating in 2015.
