His role as Captain Pruitt is a character described as tough and a respected leader by all its members. Despite being firm with his rules, the captain will be most loved by his subordinates. "Grey's Anatomy" is Sandoval's second project with Shondaland. He will have the most significant role in the lives of the Seattle firefighters this time.

Most of the time, Captain Pruitt will be offered promotions; however, he'll choose to decline the offer and rather be on the front line of his men than be seated on his desk. He will be one of the role models that his men will look up to in terms of being a broad-minded thinker.

Guest star on the series

Prior to becoming one of the series regulars on the spinoff series, Sandoval was reportedly a guest star in the "Grey's Anatomy" season nine episodes. Before he landed another role at ABC, Sandoval used to work with HBO's "Sharp Objects."

He also previously starred on NBC's short-lived comedy series, "Bad Judge." Perhaps, it isn't the first time for the veteran actor to take on challenging and significant roles on #TV shows. Stay tuned as Captain Pruitt lead his men this season.
