–He again shared a fiction where a very difficult and dark story is told. How was the meeting?
you see: We didn’t have many crosses in the first season, because Cecilia plays the slain boy’s mother and I, the accused boy’s father for the crime. So the scenes in which we coincided were short and tense because of the plot. But in this second season, her character changes her attitude and herself tries to find out what happened to her son and That quest also includes my character.
dopazo: In the first part, my character was important because it is about a woman who is facing the worst situations that life can present to you. But it didn’t have much effect on the plot. In the new chapters, she decides to take a more active role in the face of the inertia of the police and justice and go out to discover the truth.

–The series depicts several cases in which father and mother acted in a cause, in the face of the inertia of those who actually had to take charge. Did it resonate with you when you were approached for the project?
dopazo: It is overwhelming to imagine such a situation. I thought of references like mother of pain, and in Susannah Trimarco, Marita Verone’s mother, in terms of character and strength she always put in her struggle to reach the final results. and in search of that, The mother I play finds a perfect ally in Fernani’s character, which is needed to reach the truth due to other circumstances as well.
you see: What was most interesting to me, right from the first season, was the fact that Your son is accused of a crime and you’re not sure it wasn’t himAs with my character. This implies a responsibility as a parent that is questioned all the time. This is also disturbing. But, moreover, beyond the fact that his son can be declared innocent, the man wonders what is the truth behind everything and that’s where he comes in with the character of Cecilia. Crossing between them is very rare.
Something unexpected happens because of the drama unfolding in front of them, but what unites them in the end.

And he didn’t know if he would be able to reach that depth, that level of pain. But luckily I agreed and I liked what I did. I finally had a good time. I think that I’ve never had to do something so dramatic. Plus, it seems to me that, from the moment you have kids, you become the most vulnerable being, because no matter how much you care for them, there are areas you don’t control or know what happens. , and it is not advisable to over-protect them.
you seeWhen I first read the book, it immediately reminded me that you’ve seen a boy’s mom or dad say: “I can’t have a son, he wasn’t“The sad state that reflects your responsibility as a father or mother, for your own pain and for the pain it may cause. The feeling”What did I do, what did I do wrong in doing this?“I found one of the most interesting points in history.
“El Mundo de Mateo”: The series premiered its second season on Flow.

dopazoWhat happens with that movie is so strong that, Sometimes I feel like we did yesterday. Everyone remembers it and it has affected so many people as well as their own personal life. We are all in that sense as a community. It’s beautiful that he keeps on creating that equanimity.
