Devious Maids is adding a new series regular.

One week after landing a third-season renewal at Lifetime, the primetime soap has promoted Gilles Marini to the main cast, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

In the third season, Marini's character, Sebastien, will romance Carmen Luna (Roselyn Sanchez). Marini first appeared as a guest star in the season-two finale.

Creator Marc Cherry will remain at the helm for season three, splitting showrunning duties with executive producers Ric Swartzlander and Brian Tanen.

Devious Maids centers on a group of maids (Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Sanchez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes) who are bonded by their jobs, struggles and employers' "upstairs-downstairs" universe. Susan Lucci, Rebecca Wisocky, Tom Irwin, Mariana Klaveno, Grant Show, Matt Cedeno, Melinda Page Hamilton, Drew Van Acker, Brianna Brown and Brett Cullen co-star.

Marini is repped by APA and Authentic Talent and Literary Management. He previously co-starred on Switched at Birth, 2 Broke Girls and Brothers & Sisters, competing on Dancing With the Stars in seasons eight and 15.
