The Chilean actor is recuperating from arm surgery after his injury on Dancing With the Stars Cristián de la Fuente will soon reclaim the dance floor. Two weeks after his arm surgery, the sexy 33-year-old Chilean actor is feeling much better. The tendon he ruptured while dancing with partner Cheryl Burke on ABC’s popular dance show, is healing.

Resting and having a strong will have helped the actor-turned-dancer in his recovery. “The doctor said it was a perfect repair,” his rep Cynthia Snyder told the Associated Press. “He had his stitches out on Tuesday. Everything is going well.”

However, De la Fuente told Univision’s show Escándalo TV that he will still need to recover for another three months before he’s back to his old self again.

The actor seemed optimistic during a public appearance in Disneyland. His arm was bandaged but De la Fuente looked as sexy as ever and eager to take on new work projects.

He has more than enough offers. One of the most tempting was producer Salvador Mejía’s offer to appear on the soap opera Fuego en la Sangre. De la Fuente is also promoting his new series for USA Network, In Plain Sight, where he plays one of the lead characters.
