“I had less than a week after finishing recording women’s weapons to change my chip and start with The Queen, a complicated process because they could not be more different. I was able to do it because I am already in my third season with Teresa Mendoza, otherwise it would have been impossible, “she confessed.

For the first time, the public will see Del Castillo as a blonde with green eyes, “very feminine, forgetful, anxious, obsessed with how she looks and what people think of her.”

“It couldn’t be more different from me or from Teresita,” he asserted.

The actresses agreed that the background of the series is the way in which these women “discover that inside they are made of steel” when their husbands go to jail and must avoid being implicated in the case against them, in addition to seeing how to survive.

“There is drama, but it is also very funny, because it plays a lot with black comedy. All of us, starting with Kate, bring out new acting skills for the public,” said Sánchez, who is about to premiere the second season of the new stage of The fantasy island.
