The actress also personified “Popis” in “El chavo del 8” and “Chimoltrufia” in “Los caquitos”. It was in the latter that she shared a recording set with the actress who played “Doña Espotaverderona”, nothing more and nothing less than the mother of Florinda Meza’s character.
The actress was invited by Roberto Bolaños himself to participate in the series after she played a role in a film written by him called “Angelitos del trapezio”.
“Roberto was a wonderful man, I loved him very much as a co-worker. I was very comfortable working with him. With me he was a very nice person”, he assured.
