Your art and your smile stay forever✨🖤With much pain, we regret the departure of Sebastián Athié whom we will always remember for his great talent, companionship, professionalism and, above all, enormous heart.

On the television show O11CE, which is about a boy who gets recruited to play soccer at a sports institute, Athié played Lorenzo Guevara. His co-star Daniel Panitio posted in memory of Athié. When translated the post reads, “Noble souls do not die and your light will be eternal, passion, discipline and love, so I will remember you, my roomie, my friend, my brother, God have your holy glory, I do not understand many times his plans, and for the first time I it makes you feel to lose a brother, life I owe you a lot, I will miss you.”

Athié was known to be a big soccer fan himself and was open about supporting his favorite team Juventus F.C. on his social media. In November 2019, Athié and the rest of the cast filmed O11CE at “2 of the most important football clubs in the world.” Athié  shared the experience on his Instagram. 

He said, “To all the parents who sat with their children to watch the series and in the end they ended up knowing the names of the characters more than the children themselves. 3 seasons is easy, it is not. Thank you for believing in us. Thanks Lorenzo Guevara. O11CE in my ❤️ forever.”

“Llegamos” Esas fueron las palabras que pronunciamos al entrar por primera vez al vestuario de la @juventus . La expresión no fue literalmente porque estuviéramos ahí, ( y porque tenía el vestidor de Cristiano Ronaldo en frente) Nos referíamos a que habíamos llegado a Turín, a que acababan de grabar hace 1 semana en Madrid, a que 2 de los clubes más importantes de football en el mundo formaban parte del proyecto y además teniendo la oportunidad de jugar en ellos. Sí, “llegamos” gracias a ustedes, a todas las personas que dejaron que entremos en sus corazones con un proyecto lleno de valores. A todos los papás que se sentaron con sus hijos para ver la serie y al final terminaban sabiendo más los nombres de los personajes que los propios hijos. 3 temporadas se dice fácil, no lo és. Gracias por creer en nosotros. Gracias Lorenzo Guevara. O11CE en mi ❤️ por siempre.
