Infobae talked with Lina Tejeirothe popular Colombian star —she has 8.9 million followers on Instagram— recognized for television work such as Fathers and sons, the law of the heart and Revenge. She is in charge of giving life to the character of Carolina, a beautiful dancer from pole dancing to which Cheo’s neighbors turn to teach him a lesson.
—Who is Carolina Rico in this feature film?
-Carolina is a woman who works in a bar for adults, a whiskey. She has quite a difficult life: precisely for that reason she does what she does. And in those of hers the neighbors come to convince her [de enamorar a Cheo]. Perhaps at some point in her life she wanted or dreamed of being an actress. She is a woman with courage. She is a woman with attitude, with Perrinque.
—How did you deal with Carolina’s story?
—The preparation… I’m going to be very honest: I was very nervous, because in the end there was never a casting. Dago [García, director, guionista y productor colombiano] surely he had me among the girls that he wanted me to play this character, and he proposed it to me.
How is this job different from previous ones?
-When I madeWhy did they leave Nacho? he was not aware of what he was doing. At that time I did not have the passion that I have today to ask “And what lens is that?”, “And how are we working?”, “And how many frames?”. The pace of that movie was a little faster; here I feel that A tail with a heart It’s my first movie, in every sense.
—How was filming in times of pandemic?
It was a super nice experience, I confess that I felt very cared for. Due to the fact that we recorded during the pandemic, the production company took great care of us, from start to finish. They tested us for COVID all the time; there was always distance [social] and each had their own space.
—Have you ever been touched by characters like the protagonist of this film?
—Yes, of course, of course. In my life I have had people close to me who were very rabonas. And he touches me daily on Bogota, in the streets, when people do not let you put [el automóvil] when one is asking for passage. That is being a rabón. It happens to me a lot and I say it all the time, because I am one of those who put the [luces] turn signals to ask for passage and they won’t let me. That is a jerk. What does it cost one to stop and let go? It’s as if it cost something… And yes, obviously, I get a lot of dicks during the day. Also, I’ve been rabona! I have been a rabona, I have been a raboncita.
