WHAT HE’S DONE:
The Brazilian actor has inspired much swooning — first on the big and small screens in his native country, then throughout the northern hemisphere in 2003’s Love Actually.

HOW HE’S DOING IT:
See: a picture of him. Also, dude’s got an earnest, earthy charm. ”I surf every day,” says Santoro, 30. ”Mother Nature is very important to me.”

WHEN HE’LL BREAK BIG:
This season, he joins ABC’s Lost as a castaway who’s ”been there all along.” But don’t ask Santoro who he’ll be playing. ”I know nothing about my character. I’m told this is common among the cast.”

WHY YOU SHOULD ROOT FOR HIM:
Because if you don’t, they’ll kill him.
