To Diego Boneta Luis Miguel. The Serie (Netflix) modified his life. The worldwide success of the biography of the Mexican singer a earlier than and after in his profession however it has additionally woke up a problem, that of detaching himself from a personality who fully absorbed him to keep away from the dreaded typecasting.
In an interview with EFE in Madrid, the place the actor will attend the Platino Ibero-American Movie Awards ceremony on Sunday, the Mexican talks about the long run after “El sol de México” and the challenges of the Hispanic American audiovisual sector.

The second goes to the Platinum Awards
– What do you consider your nomination for the Platino Awards, which have a good time Ibero-American cinema?
-It is an ideal honor. They’re crucial and particular awards as a result of they create collectively your complete movie and tv group from throughout Latin America. It is my second nomination, I’ve already been with Luis Miguel and it is extremely particular.
What has this film meant to your profession?
-The truth that it had nothing to do with the earlier made it so particular, and having received the jury prize on the Venice Movie Competition was loopy (…) It’s a very related movie with what is going on on the earth , in lots of nations, polarization and lack of empathy exists, is one thing that’s occurring in every single place.
-Earlier than New order they didn’t supply him papers in Mexico as a result of they “did not see him as Mexican enough.” Is that this altering?
-I went to america as a result of once I needed to do castings for Mexican motion pictures they did not see me as a Mexican actor. I imagine that being Mexican is carried within the coronary heart. I used to be born in Mexico, I’ve a mix, I’ve a Spanish passport, my grandmother was from Murcia and my grandfather’s household from the Basque Nation, my mom was born in america.

That’s the reason Michel (Franco) and I join a lot, he’s seen as an “outcast” (rejected), in sure issues. I hope that after that film and Luis Miguel they already see me as a Mexican.
-The movie, which aroused a lot controversy in Mexico, offers with racial and social variations. Are they actually that current?
-For me the issue of the movie It has nothing to do with racism, however with polarization and lack of empathy. The speech was a lot racial. Lots of people did not see the film due to the trailer and judged it on that.
However if you watch the film you notice that It isn’t a narrative of Indians in opposition to excessive class folks, it has nothing to do with that. In actual fact, the antagonist is the military (…). It’s a warning of what occurs when there isn’t a dialogue.
-Do you suppose that the revolution that the movie talks about might occur in Mexico, the place additionally they have a president whose imaginative and prescient of the previous generates a lot controversy?
-I might not prefer to put myself on the political facet (…). I feel they’re very delicate points. An important factor is that folks vote; There have been elections lately in Mexico, and in three years there will probably be others. There are a lot of people who find themselves not comfortable. I attempt to watch out with political points, I’m not a political scientist, I’m an actor, it is delicate when actors discuss politics.
Life with out Luismi
Luis Miguel in line with Diego Boneta and Diego Boneta in line with himself: previous and current of an actor in search of new horizons.
-How do you see life with out Luis Miguel?
–Luis Miguel, the sequence It modified my life. It was a venture that left me a lot, that it demanded quite a bit, and it was an unimaginable studying. There are few performances that require that degree of transformation and it was the primary time that I needed to do one thing like this (…).
One other problem will come and for me it is very important take steps ahead performing, not staying comfy and all the time pushing. For that motive, it’s that New order It isn’t associated with Luis Miguel and the following venture would be the similar, I would like it to have completely nothing to do with what I did beforehand.
-What’s going to that call be based mostly on?
-An important factor he left Luis Miguel It was the start of my profession as a producer and due to the success of the sequence, which no one anticipated, all of the sudden many platforms approached us to ask us: “What are they going to do after?”
We realized that earlier than there have been no tasks that broke with the stereotype of the Latino. They weren’t tasks that excited me, one thing that would transcend, transcend different Latino tasks. And I noticed that in the event that they weren’t there, they needed to be created.

Be a part of the change as a substitute of complaining
– Do you’re feeling that Mexico and Latin America weren’t being properly counted because of stereotypes?
-Sure, I feel it is going a significantly better manner, I I discover an abysmal distinction in the present day within the tasks they supplied for Latinos once I moved to Los Angeles 14 years in the past. What sequence did you watch in america in Spanish? It wasn’t till it got here out Narcos that modified the scheme, after which The Cash Heist. All the things is current (…)
I see and I discover a change and it’s as much as us to maintain pushing and be a part of the change as a substitute of complaining. And in becoming a member of forces, one thing that the Latino movie and tv group lacks is unity.
