Before the closing of theaters due to the pandemic, André Silva was directed by Roberto Ángeles and gave life to the serial killer Roberto Zucco. “The play itself was a challenge. It was complicated because it requires a lot of physical work and I also sing there. I am psyched in being able to reach the level that the play had, which was quite vigorous, with a lot of energy and emotional strength ”, comments the actor who these days plays ‘León’, the star of cumbia in the telenovela ‘Moonlight’. “I have had the privilege of being able to prepare surrounded by many professionals who are trying to get the best out of me. I’m taking singing lessons to keep improving ”.
The story managed to lead the schedule and had peaks of 28 rating points. However, Silva maintains that he does not agree with his theater colleagues, critics of open signal content (some question that he does not bet on producing more Peruvian fiction, others question the scripts). “I have never complained about any program, even if it is a reality show. Criticizing the work of others is going against the presenter, the boys who appear on the screen, but also all the families behind. Making a program means a lot of effort and I believe that we must value the work we have, be grateful for what we have to do and happy for the results. We are taking care of every detail, it is not easy to come up with a project of this nature where the characters sing, dance … The public has been carefully done with special effects, we continue to maintain the protocols and we have reached (rating) figures that have not been seen for a long time, it fills us with great pride ”.
“The ‘hook’ is to bring Peruvian families closer together”
The actor, also in charge of the image direction of Del Barrio, comments that the telenovela has a “clear message” to families. “It is effort, sacrifice, that one has to get ahead by sacrificing many things. ‘León’ is a good motivator for all the people who love what they do and believe in what they do. Many (music) groups in the pandemicIn a way, they have been hit hard, it must be admitted, but they have also found a way, digitization. It is being hard, we are not going to deny it, but I like to see the positive side of things, “adds Silva, who does not rule out continuing in music. “I keep preparing myself, it is the basis of all work.”
Highlighting the father-daughter bond is one of the most important components, according to the actor. “The soap opera is uniting Peruvian families, and many of them see themselves as in a mirror in these stories that we are telling. Although the pandemic has been hard and many have lost their loved ones, it is best to remember them with love and that this becomes strength to move forward. That is something magical and what we tell can achieve it ”.
He adds that the production company will not stop touching on urgent issues such as gender violence. “Michelle Alexander has us used to touching topics that are in the foreground. He is clear that his job is not only to entertain the public, but to use those stories to help them be better. We touch on discrimination, social classes, differences … gender violence He was present in ‘La piel de Alicia’ and now too. I believe that the public is learning from the good things, and sees the bad things so as not to repeat them. The ‘hook’ is to bring Peruvian families closer together ”.
