Levy worked as a model for the Next Models agency, and was featured in two reality shows before becoming an actor. His debut on the Spanish-language channel Univision was in the Venevision International production of Olvidarte Jamás. He later appeared in Mi Vida Eres Tu and Acorralada. In 2008, he appeared in his first film, Retazos de Vida, directed by Viviana Cordero. He was invited by television producer Carla Estrada to star in Pasión, his breakthrough in Mexican telenovelas. Televisa cast him as the lead in Cuidado con el Angel with actress and ex-RBD singer Maite Perroni. The show was first broadcast in Mexico in June 2008, and began airing in the United States in September 2008 on Univision. It averaged 5 million viewers per evening.
William Levy grew up without a father’s presence in his childhood, until his mother remarried. It was at that time when the Cuban’s family decided to take advantage of the political asylum that his stepfather had obtained in the United States, which is why they obtained the necessary legal papers to move their residence from Havana to Miami, Florida.
