Edward Joshua Bonilla, 24,  known professionally as E.J. Bonilla is an American television and film actor. He is best known for his role as Rafe Rivera, son of a Lesbian Mom, on Guiding Light. Bonilla is Puerto Rican and Played Gay in the 2011 short, Man in the Mirror, and is now doing it again on Revenge as Marco Romero, Nolan's Ex.

After Elton got the DISH on Bonilla's Marco:

AfterElton: How did the role come about on Revenge?
EJ Bonilla:
I auditioned like everyone else, but it was interesting because I didn’t have a callback or anything like that. I liked it because I think ABC is really good at crossing over certain borders. The character was originally named Lucas Hayward. He was a 30-year-old black man.

AE: Wow! Were you given much backstory for Marco?
Not a damn thing! I remember talking with one of the writers the first day I was on set, and I pulled him aside, and I said, ‘Is there anything you can tell me other than what’s in this episode? What are you guys going towards?’ And he gave me an idea, but for the most part he was like, ‘Honestly, I don’t know what happens in the next episode.’

AE: Based on the flashback episode, I would guess that Nolan and Marco were in love and it wasn’t just a fling. Is that how you saw it?
I created my whole own backstory to what their relationship was… the interesting thing about Marco is that he knows and knew Nolan as Nolan before Nolan was ‘Nolan Ross.’ Before Nolan was a billionaire, before Nolan had a checkbook that could handle a small island. And I think there’s a lot that comes along with that history.
