Rasuk says the chemistry with his costar was so natural and strong that they improvised a salsa dance during a club scene they filmed in South Beach. "It's one of my favorite scenes and that was the first time on film out of the things that I've done that I've ever danced in front of a camera. I was mad nervous!" the Dominican American actor told Muse TV.
