O11CE - pronounced Once - followed a young man recruited to play soccer at a sports institute. Athie played a character named Lorenzo Guevara for the show, which has run for three seasons.
According to IMDb, Athie has only one other acting credit, having appeared in two episodes of La Rosa de Guadalupe, which translates to "The Rose of Guadalupe".
He appeared in the show's seventh and eighth seasons as Samuel and Neto, respectively.
Daniel Panitio, an actor who appeared in O11NCE alongside Athie, paid tribute to his late friend on Instagram, sharing a handful of pictures and videos of the actor.
Per Google Translate, the caption said: "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 it makes me feel to lose a brother, life I owe you a lot, I will miss you."
