—They spent five years working on “De vuelta al barrio”, playing Pichón. And indeed, this series is full of cycles, the actor’s life is full of cycles. And one after more than 30 years of career knows that this begins and ends. What I felt was gratitude for spending five years in a sustained story from a good script. Gratitude, nothing more, is what always remains. This career is full of cycles. They open up as families during production, and after they’re done you stop seeing them and find them again later.
-Yes of course. One does not lose identity ha ha ha. It happens to me that they still call me Pichón and that Pichón had a mustache, it was like the hallmark of the character. (…) When one enters the collective memory through a character, you first have to feel very grateful, because it is not easy to reach people’s hearts.
YOU CAN SEE: What happened to Danae Sacovértiz, the remembered Teresa from the soap opera “Natacha”? Would you play a character like him again?
Pichón was a familiar, warm character, who had his family as a priority, he had very clear values. He has always been nice to play cool characters. Now, playing a bad guy, a villain, also has its charm because you bring out all the demons you have inside. It’s entertaining, it’s more fun, suddenly, at times to do bad things within a story, but the level of contact that a warm and familiar character can establish with the children is invaluable. It is the best retribution that a TV personality can give, speaking in a massive way.
—During the recordings you suffered an accident. How did this event affect your life on a personal and professional level?
—Going through this emotional crisis because I couldn’t move, I couldn’t walk, I went to a psychologist to help me and it’s something that we all go through due to a mental health issue and we need help, we should do it. Many times, when we feel emotionally bad, and it doesn’t go away, we are left alone and continue in this maelstrom without finding a way out. If we do not contact a psychologist, at least talk to someone who can guide us or refer us to a specialist and prevent this from increasing.
I have been lucky to have a job, to have a family, to do what I like. And even so, having all that, there came a time when I felt absolutely frustrated, with no way out, depressed and with a series of sensations that were very difficult to channel. I think it is highly recommended to be attentive to our mental health and the mental health of the people we love. We must be attentive and try to be happy as much as we can.

—After the end of “De vuelta al barrio” a new season of “Al fondo hay sitio” was announced. Did you receive any proposals to be part of this year’s project?
—In “Al fondo hay sitio” the people who were already there were going to participate and some younger actors or actresses who came in to replace some who were not going to participate. But no, not in principle. Anyway, I’m recording “Maricucha 2” right now and the terms with everyone, in my case, have always been the best.
—Would you like “De vuelta al barrio” to return or do you feel that it has completed its cycle on TV?
“No, it’s done. “De vuelta al barrio” has already completed its cycle, its process that, in reality, we did not know how long it would be and ended up being five years. Very happy and grateful for this completed project.
YOU CAN SEE: Who is Andrea Alvarado, the actress who will give life to the evil clone of ‘Maricucha’? —Now you are the antagonist in “Maricucha 2″ and Stephano Meir is your son in fiction, how has it been working with him so far?
—Super, really super.
Stephano Meier He is a super-educated boy, very noble. Just when we recorded the first day, he told me: ‘Hey, my dad told me that he found out I’m going to be your son, he’s super happy, he sends you a hug.’ It is always nice to work with great artists.
– Now to finish. Lucho Cáceres is your friend, what do you think about the legal confrontation he has had with Magaly Medina? Do you think that she is often hasty when making comments towards certain entertainment characters?
—The truth is that I don’t see her, I don’t know what she’s doing now and I don’t think she deserves further comment. The good vibes of people can be seen through their work, and it’s nice when one finds in people attitudes that help you to be better and that help society to be better. I think it’s not good for us to find people in different media who give us a bad vibe, a bad feeling, someone who takes care of digging into the negative things or trying to spread the worst.
Once upon a time, with a great friend of African descent, one of my best friends in life, who is Raffo Santa Cruz, we were with him, and on the lady’s program they made a very derogatory comment that had to do with the color of her skin. skin and I thought that was really gross, so I don’t think it deserves my comment.
