For this reason, in this note we will tell you what happened and we will remember the moment in which the actress spoke about this miniseries.
What was the “Magnolia Merino” series about and why did it bother Magaly?
“Magnolia Merino” is a miniseries of
michelle alexander which told the story of a successful entertainment journalist. However, the description of this character was very similar to Magaly Medina, so, at the time of her, it was ensured that this production had been inspired by her.
This story was released just at the time when the famous ATV figure was in prison after losing the lawsuit filed by Paolo Guerrero. This series caused a stir in the entertainment environment; however, it caused the outrage of the popular ‘Urraca’.
“Michelle Alexander wanted to make a biography of me ridiculing me.
Magnolia Merino was an aberration of what my life really was. They put it on prime time when I was in prison and I couldn’t defend myself,” he said on his show.
However, Ebelin Ortiz, who gave life to Magnolia Merino, was a guest on Jaime Bayly’s program “El francotirador” and talked about it.
What did Evelyn Ortiz say?
During her presentation in the Jaime Bayly space, Evelin Ortiz was asked: “Don’t you think that this miniseries makes a caricature of Magaly?”
The Peruvian actress denied having been inspired by Magaly Medina for the creation of her character:
“No, it’s a character. I receive a book, some scripts. As an actress I can base myself on many people, on many television characters. In any case, we as viewers have been sold a character and I suppose that based on that character is that many of us make many fables, ”she assured.
Was Magnolia Merino a mockery of Magaly Medina?
Likewise, according to what Magaly pointed out at the time, Jaime Bayly asked Evelin Ortiz if the miniseries was a joke.
“No (I think it’s cruel), because I don’t consider it to be Magaly as a person or as a human being. They sold me a character at 9:00 pm and I, depending on that character, can make up the fable that I want, ”she said.
