Read Excerpt from the Interview Below;
Q: You grew up as a child star, now you have over 5 studio albums with over 20 series how are you able to combine music and acting?
A: I can do both in musical theatre; I feel like a fish in the ocean. It is in this area that I most enjoy my art and passion.
Q: You reside in Mexico and Miami, how are you able to shuffle between these 2 locations?
A: Now I’m living in Mexico City, for all the projects I’m doing here. But, Miami was my second home for the past two years; I do a lot of work there. I have so many friends there, and I LOVE Miami! So, I go often.
Q: Do you have any plans of venturing into Hollywood?
A: Yes, of course! But, in the perfect time… I’m not in a rush of being there tomorrow, you know? I know that someday I will be there. I work very hard to make my dreams come true; I have so many dreams and plans that I’m working towards. I’m going step by step.
Q: Which would you say is your first love, music or acting?
A:Acting, with a really good soundtrack. So, musical theatre, totally! Like I said, I feel like a fish in the ocean when I’m on stage acting and singing. I’m a drama queen! Haha.
Q: You made impressive adverts with L’Oreal Paris when they endorsed you, can you tell us about the role you performed when you dyed your hair red?
A: Working with L’Oréal is a dream come true. Being part of the world wide ambassadors of this family is amazing; they gave me the confidence of believing in myself, my natural beauty, reinforcing ” I am worth it”, making me forgetting about the fears of dying my hair and of taking care of it. That’s why I started being caramel, then chocolate and now berry! Haha. I love changes!
And the crew is the best! The powerful women of this company are one of the best teams I’ve worked with. I feel so proud and fortunate representing this strong slogan “BECAUSE WE ARE WORTH IT”, and smiling and screaming every time I see my commercial on TV.
Q: Tell us ten things we don’t know about you.
A: I am a frustrated chef, I have a phobia of clowns.
Q: You’ve featured in so many Telemundo series, which one is your favourite and which series brought the best out of you.
“Iron Rose” of course… Monica, I enjoyed this character so much. I’ve learned a lot from my actor friends and directors. This project and character changed my life. I met people who now are very important in my life, and I thank Telemundo so much to for giving me this opportunity.
Q: Tell us more about your role in this latest series, Iron Rose?
A: Monica is a strong and sweet dreamer who grew up with a disabled father. She tries to see the good side of everything. She’s a traveling singer, and sells food on the streets for a living.
Monica grows up wanting to know the identity of her mother, who abandoned her at birth (Altagracia Sandoval) “La Doña”. She meets Altagracia when she decides to move to Mexico City, without knowing the change of life that awaits her. For the first time she feels that her life makes sense, meeting the love of her life, “Saul Aguirre”, a passionate man with a strong heart. Monica must fight for love and deal with the misery of knowing that her mother is also in love with “Saul”, while trying to survive with the insecurities of gender violence in her country.
Q: Do you see yourself in the character you are playing?
A: Yes of course, every character I have played has something in common with me. Monica is so strong and passionate, like me. She likes to sing like me, she believes in love… But in the end, I’ve learned more than I thought from her. And thanks to that, today I’m the woman I am because of this amazing character.
Q: You have so many fans in Africa and Nigeria particularly. What do you have to say to your fans who love your character in Iron Rose?
A: That I love all!! I’m very thankful that everyone is enjoying my character and the story. Thank you for all the support and love :)! And, I hope to someday be there in Africa to meet all of you!
