The surprise death of Aurelio Casillas during the first episode of the seventh season of El señor de los cielos generated great commotion on social media.
Rafael Amaya's departure from fiction undoubtedly marks a before and after in the successful superset that the renowned Mexican actor has headed since 2013.
With the death of Aurelio, the 42-year-old interpreter closes one of the most important cycles of his career after more than 6 years giving life to the famous drug trafficker.
But what will happen to the actor now that he has left behind his most emblematic and successful character? Will you continue to be part of the ranks of Telemundo?
People en Español contacted the network to shed light on this matter and this was the official statement they sent us:
“The success of our superseries, such as The Lord of the Skies, is to present content with captivating stories, a high level of production and great artists. As fans have seen, the development of the plot of the series in this new season completes the story of the character Aurelio Casillas. However, Rafael Amaya is still part of the Telemundo family and we hope to work with him on future projects soon,”reads the statement that the network sent us.
Telemundo thus confirms that the actor continues to be one of the network's talents, so it is highly likely that we will soon be able to see him in a new fiction.
Remember that Amaya has been away from public life for more than a year, specifically since her character was shot and left in a coma.
The last time the actor was seen on his social networks was in April 2018 when he shared a promotional video for the sixth season of The Lord of the Skies.
