In the video, the 31-year-old Levy—who has been making women swoon on the fourteenth season of ABC’s "Dancing With The Stars" since March—tells People he's having a blast on the hit show, but adds that he isn't letting fame go to his head.
"I might be doing all these good things now, but I'm still a very humble person and I think you should never lose that," the actor tells People during a break on his photo shoot.
"When you lose that, you lose the chance to enjoy life with everyone around you."
Posing shirtless and flaunting his 12-pack abs, the Cuban telenovela star also tells People that competing on DWTS is harder than starring in a telenovela. "The biggest challenge here is to be patient when I learn the dances, because its hard," he says. "I mean, it's not the same thing as when you come in and learn your script. It has been very hard for me to try to calm myself down and know that I'm going to learn it little by little."
But Levy adds that he's not going to give up. "I'm still working on it," he explains.
