Telenovelas continue to thrive during a time when soap operas like All My Children and As the World Turns have lost their appeal and have met their fate. A month ago I responded to a casting for a Latina mom and shortly realized that the best part about acting is that I get to be a mom without ever changing a diaper or having to worry about financing my child's education. Purrrrrrrfect!
I arrived on set at 7:30 AM for hair and makeup, then met my "husband" and "son". We took our Cuban family portrait just as we wrapped up shooting our scene for the Colombian telenovela ...."Alla Te Espero"
