Escamilla's rise to stardom came less than two years after making his acting debut. Although "Elite" is a Spanish show, it quickly became a hit in the US and UK, gathering a massive fan base that soared along with the popularity of its cast members.

Escamilla seems prepared for his foreign fanbase as the actor reportedly has a strong command of the English language. Fans might soon see the rising talent take up English scripts, furthering his fame.

While the future seems bright for the young Spanish actor, there are concerns over his availability on the show that made him a household name. Many fans harbor the fear that Escamilla's time on "Elite" might have come to an end.

"Elite" season 5 has featured several intriguing moments as the students of the affluent Madrid-based private school increase their body counts. However, one of the characters feared dead is the beloved Samuel, who probably will not make it from his injuries.

So far, the actor's name is yet to appear in the lineup of season 6, but fans are hoping that Samuel finds a way out of his injuries and continues his imposing yet adored presence in the series.
