Cuban influencer, actor and director of the YouTube miniseries “10 beats per second” Eddie Suarez told his followers via twitter that he had “relocated” from Havana to Florida.
“I was not here, but hey. That I went and that, Florida, “wrote the young man on his profile on the social network.
On his Instagram, the influencer posted a video summarizing his farewell to friends and family, especially his mother, and over 15,000 people reacted with “a like” to the young artist’s clip.
“Today is a special day,” announced the 24-year-old actor. Other colleagues, such as actresses Belisa Cruz, Yuliet Cruz and Alicia Hechevarría, wished her “the best” and “success” in this new path.

“My love, how beautiful it was on you, blessings, here your brother is crying, we love you very much. Don’t forget, it shines that you’re a star, I love you,” wrote her mom Belkis Diaz.
Eddie, who has worked with the Jazz Villa Project, became very popular in 2020 when he created the 10-episode miniseries “10 Beats Per Second”, which was the first to air exclusively on YouTube. The series had great acceptance among young people. Suárez was an actor, screenwriter, cinematographer and general director of this fiction.
“The series is born out of a fusion of two things that have deeply impressed me. First, a personal and professional crisis he was going through, and second, and most importantly, there is a need for this kind of product in the current Cuban audiovisual context,” Suárez told Mexican outlet GQ in 2020.
The actor explained that he looked around him and saw the number of foreign soap operas that young Cubans were consuming “because of the absence of national content that identifies them.”
“With almost nothing in our pocket, we decided to launch ourselves knowing the risk of creating a product for digital platforms in Cuba, a country that does not have the infrastructure or knowledge regarding the use of these platforms. There is no normalized culture,” he said at the time.
Suárez arrived in the United States on a direct flight from Havana to Miami.
