The seventh season of El señor de los cielos, which Telemundo premiered on Monday, October 14 at 10 p.m. EST, marked the return to history of Luzma, the youngest daughter of Aurelio Casillas (Rafael Amaya).
The character is reintegrated, however, into the successful fiction with a new face since this time it will not be the young Mexican actress Gala Montes who will give him life.
Who will get into Luzma's skin now will be the Mexican actress Renata Manterola, who recently gave birth to Vanessa Cruz, the daughter of the famous reggaetonist Charly Flow (Lambda García), in the recently completed Univision soap opera La reina soy yo.
Renata, who has just over 35,000 followers on Instagram - unlike Gala who is close to two million - has only been professionally immersed in the world of acting for three years.
He recorded his first soap opera, Three Families, in 2017 by TV Azteca.
The 24-year-old actress admitted in a recent interview to a Mexican media that playing Luzma "is an incredible opportunity" for her, who is "very happy" despite the fact that, she says, it has taken "a little work" to give her life since he is a 'superdifferent' character.
As she exclusively told People en Español months ago, Gala made the decision not to return to the superset because the direction her character would have was not what she expected.
“What was initially offered to me was what we all expected from Luzma. I came much more hardened and empowered to handle part of the cartel. Obviously I know that by having turned 18 I was going to have some sex scenes, I emphasize here because they are not scary, as long as they are justified, but I never thought that the character was going to take another direction and the Luzma scenes were mostly to be sex. She no longer focused on the main problem of the character, which was drugs and which was striking for me to continue with the character,”explained the 19-year-old interpreter.
"My mom, who is my manager, spoke with them and proposed that the sex scenes be reduced and that what was promised be fulfilled, that the character agree with what it was, but the writer had already defined what he wanted for this new Luzma and there I made the difficult decision not to accept.”
