Playing choral was a very cool thing
Para el actor Edgar Treviño quien da vida al personaje de Coral el formar parte de esta cinta fue increíble, ya que anteriormente había terminado una obra de teatro “Como ser gay y no morir en el intento” y tocaba la historia de un vivíti travesti At the beach. This character caught the attention of Serena’s director, who did not hesitate to invite him to be a part of her.
Similarly, Trevigno said he felt parallel to his character since he checked out, at a cabaret show, so he was always in his midst and that was what he liked the most because he never let go of what he usually did.
“When I got to the recording of ‘Serena,’ they asked me who I am and I replied that Coral told me then: But if Coral was going to be a woman and in good health, the story was turned around and the cinematic was really exciting.”
Carmina, Cursed Red Witch
For her part, the actress Magdalena Caravaggio who plays Carmina, admitted that she loves to play the damned characters because she considers them to be much richer than good characters in general because there are more sides, and there is more oratory.
For Caravaggio, working with director Miguel Angel was a wonderful experience because it gave him all the confidence to play Carmina, a woman full of evil. Besides, this is a talented Jalisco movie on a low budget, with lots of love and camaraderie.
When I asked her how she sympathizes with her character, Magdalena, she commented:
“Since they said red witch I’ve had so much fun, if you’re a witch and if you’re red. That’s the part you don’t let go, I think we all have a lot of me inside and there are some that you let in complete freedom and there are others that you hold, that’s why I love things The bad, the bad characters because I expand there, I exist, but I don’t allow myself to be.”
