I always get what I want.
— Benicio, Season 3/Episode 05

Benicio is a character introduced in Season 2 of Soy Luna. Benicio has a rocky set of morals and will do anything to get what he wants.

He is portrayed by Pasquale Di Nuzzo.


Benicio is bright, cocky, self-assured and manipulative. He is always looking for success and personal gain no matter what damage he may cause along the way. At the end of the series, he and Emilia realize that their behavior won’t get them anywhere and they both decide to change, which is shown in the last episode where they act much nicer and humbler to Juliana and others.
