Eiza González – Maria
I was in shock because she was my best friend and I had spent more time with her than anyone else in my life. When they told me that they wanted me to play a part that killed herself, I thought it was weird, but then when I started thinking about what it must have been like for her, seeing someone that you love so much and doing something like that…it had to be terrible.
Ana de la Reguera – Teresa Mendoza
The lead actress of Rosario Tijeras is here and she is outstandingly beautiful. I remember watching her when I was still in middle school, in a show called La Viuda de Blanco (The Widow in White). She was equally attractive and easy on eye back then. Her interview was just as amazing as she said how grateful she is to work with Univision again after being away for some time working at other stations such as TV Azteca, Telemundo and others.
Roberto Manrique – El Monje
He is a very charismatic crime boss, who owns most of Medellín. He wants to expand his territory and because he sees that Brenda and Roberto have a special relationship, he decides to take advantage of it. In order for Roberto Manrique to have the power over Pablo Escobar in Medellín, he needs her father, Hernando Mesa’s help.
