It is a project that took a long time, precisely due to the situation of the pandemic, but that was completed, because when we started (with the filming), we had about a month to record and then everything stopped, but a year later, at Despite all the situations, we managed to finish it and now we are days away from airing it on Netflix ”.

The dynamic with Bad Bunny

“It was very nice to work with Bad Bunny, he came from doing the Super Bowl and the truth is that I came across the pleasant surprise that he is an extremely professional person, at all times with our feet firmly on the ground, especially because in the plot he plays a lot with the Arellano Félix family, which is where my character is, we had a great time on the recording days. And that a personality like him, who is almost every day in the eye of the hurricane, gives the series great expectations. His character is very cool, he plays a lot and he put his special touch on it ”.
Marilyn anticipates that there is a particular scene that the public will enjoy a lot, it is a wedding, a sequence that lasted a week to shoot and where the strongest drug traffickers of the 90s are present.
