translated from Spanish: Juanpa Zurita: “I had a different preparation for the second season of Luis Miguel”

He grew up listening to Luis Miguel: at home, on the radio, on TV, in the square, on any day and routine. “It sounded all over Mexico, you saw things about him. It was typical of my adolescence in Acapulco,” recalls Juanpa Zurita, in dialogue with this medium. In April the second season of “Luis Miguel: The Series” premiered, the officially authorized story of the life of the Mexican singer that excites all Latin America Sunday to Sunday. The young actor plays Alex Gallego, one of his brothers.” The second season particularly Alex brings many new challenges, many new scenes, complex, the character has a particular situation in the story that is complex, in which I did have to carry a different kind of preparation, and a different kind of general approach because the level of scenes that had been very difficult,” he explained. She then expanded: “It was a beautiful season of recording but tired in the sense of all the scenes of Alex are a problem, it is drama, difficult news, in which you deal with that, you receive it and it drains you a little, but it is part of the art and I loved it as it was”.***His name is Juan Pablo Martínez-Zurita Arellano, although his fans know him as Juanpa Zurita.

He dabbed in acting with projects such as “Road of Stupidity”, “My Big Fat Hispanic Family”, and among his latest participations are “Who is the mask?”, “Little Giants”. However with his work as Alex Gallego in “Luis Miguel: The Series” he won everyone’s heart.” I didn’t know Alex, but in season 1 I looked for him, contacted him, and he helped me a lot to be able to give direction to the character, to understand it. What Alex has always given me is to understand the aspects of his character so that in what I do, I don’t get out of his personality,” he said.

“Since you receive the material you start studying it and you start to dive in and understand Alex’s posture, in these situations, and you understand Alex as a character, who is someone extremely noble, faithful, kind, sensitive, is there for his brother no matter what’s going to happen in the good and the bad,” he says. Then he follows: “He is not the main character of the story, however all the blows that Luis miguel receives are received by him as well, somehow… his dad, his mom, Sergio; the best way to do this is to live these things by experiencing them, trying them in different textures so that the moment you get there and have to give scenes you have already had many experiences in such environments so that at the moment you can adapt and you are very comfortable and free to live it again”.***The series arrives three years after the first season , where we could see the birth of the star and its first steps in fame.

One of the strongest points of the series, he observes, is the dynamics between brothers: “The truth is that Diego is an excellent actor, he is also a producer within the series and he was a bit of an accomplice with me during the scenes.
