Abismo de Pasión: Elenco y Personajes

I hope you all find this helpful. I know I always like to see and know a little about the characters before the first episode.

They sure sprung this one on us, didn't they?

Information translated from this site.

Elisa Castañon
played by Angelique Boyer
Daughter of Augusto and Estefanía, niece of Carmina. Elisa has been an orphan from a young age. She grew up with her father and her aunt Carmina, who became the second wife of her father. She is an extraordinarily beautiful and noble young woman surrounded by the bitterness of her father and aunt.

Since her childhood, she has been a very close friend to Damián and Gael. With the passage of years, her feelings for Gael continue to be friendly, but her feelings for Damián have grown into a profound love.

Damián Arango
played by David Zepeda
Son of Rosendo and Alfonsonia. Since childhood he's had a close friendship with Elisa and was separated from her by his mother who sent him away to study.

Nevertheless, when he returns to town and sees Elisa the brotherly affection he felt for her becomes a deep love for which he is willing to fight against his mother and best friend.

As the novel opens, he is the boyfriend of his cousin Florencia Landuchi, a superficial and selfish girl out for herself.

Florencia Landuchi
played by Altair Jarabo

Life-long friend of Damián and in love with Elisa since childhood.

He was abandoned at the doors of the church when he was just a baby and was taken in by Father Guadalupe who cared for him like a son. He has always been in love with Elisa, whom he protects from the idle talk and wicked deeds of the townspeople. For her he is willing to fight against Damián.

Alfonsina Arango
played by Blanca Guerra

Widow of Rosendo and mother of Damián. She mistakenly believes her husband was going to escape with Estfanía because they were lovers. In reality, he was going to run off with Carmina. Since then and with increasing anger she has poured all her rage on Elisa.

She was of course not willing to allow her son to have a friendship with the daughter of the woman that robbed her of her husband and sent her son to the capital to study.

Rosendo Arango

Augusto Castañon
played by Alejandro Camacho

Widow of Estefanía and father of Elisa. He impulsively married a second time to his sister-in-law Carmina. He mistakenly believes his first wife was the lover of Rosendo and was going to run off with idea Carmina makes sure to reinforce and that Estefanía is unable to refute since she unexpectedly dies in an accident while with Rosendo.

Carmina Bouvier
played by Sabine Moussier
Estefanía's sister and sister-in-law to Augusto, with whom she weds after her sister's death.

Estafanía Bouvier
played by: Ludwika Paleta

He possesses the horrible secrets of Carmina but has been unable to share them all these years as they were, oh hellz yes, told to him during confession. He has had to remain quiet all these years; waiting for the truth to come to light and guiding the protagonists as they secure their happiness.

Thanks for the synopsis. Sounds interesting, and has actors I have like. Will this be shown at 7:00?

...actors I like. Ye gods, proofread!!

Thanks for posting this Sara. I must admit to being confused by the apparent upcoming changes to the schedule... in particular this supplanting El Tal. My DirecTV on-screen guide has not caught up with the changes nor has the official website for el Tal.

However you managed to catch my fancy with:

Florencia Landuchi
played by Altair Jarabo
...Capricious and selfish...

just like I like her...


Poorfeard? Whats;s taht? i avode itmyself.


"has been unable to share them all these years as they were, oh hellz yes, told to him during confession"

LOL Sara! I sense your glee. This looks like it might not be the most innovative tn, but that it will be a lot of fun. I love that we can call it the Passion Pit. Good times ahead.

Random fact. The little red haired girl playing Angelique's character in the first many episodes, is also starring in the 9pm Telemundo tn Corazon Valiente. Meaning she will be competing against herself for a while. I'm sure her parents are excited.

Oh I lovvvved Raquel Olmedo in Teresa! I am getting more and more intrigued...


What a nice job you did here. Like Blue Lass, I am a real fan of Raquel Olmedo.

Love the rest of the cast...


I am so very impressed with the cast. So many of my faves. Mark Tacher cannot pull off the "rustic" look in my opinion.

Does anyone know where this one is supposed to take place?

Excellent cast; I'm looking forward to this one. It's too bad we lose Cesar Evora so early or only get him in flashbacks.

Cesar Évora plays exactly the same character he played in Cañaveral.

From what I've seen, Altair Jarabo looks amazing in this. Her hair is fabulous. I feel like producers can try and see if she's ready to be a lead now.


jarocha, i believe CE also played the same haracter (almost) in El Manantial... so this is his third time a charm...

I forgot about that one.

If they had gotten Azela Robinson like they had planned then the two of them would have been in every version of this story.


Thanks for the headstart, Sara. The only one I know is Rene C, and I remember while watching CME actually thinking he could make a good priest. Or maybe someone said he'd played one in another show?

Why are we SQUEEEEing over Livia Brito? I can SQUEEEE, just helps if I know why I'm doing it.

Rosemary la Otra

RLO--Livia Brito was an ingenue who stole the show in Triumfo de Amor. She went from bratty to a genuine darling by the end of the show. She won an award for that role. We all hoped good things would come to her.

Interesting that they snagged Altair Jarabo. She would have been dynamite as our weepy, self-centered Lucrecia and added a new dimension to demented.

I like these actors & would watch this if they'd cut Una familia con suerte back to one hour. I can't tell what time slot this one is going to be in. All it says is lunes. I'm crossing my fingers that it will be on at 8 -- with familia at 7.


Blanca Guerra has some big shoes to fill.. Both Angelica Aragon and Daniela Romo did WONDERFUL playing the counterparts in the prev versions.

would have LOVED that they brought back Azela Robinson for this one... but you are right, she already played it twice...

the rumor is they will move ElTal to 1pm and have this one at the 9pm EST/ 8pm CST slot

I'm looking forward to a new telenovela. I just could not get into El Talisman no matter how much I tried to.

Rene Casados did play a priest in "Fuego en la Sangre", and I thought he did quite a convincing job of it.

another actor with big shoes to fill... Sabine Moussier with the role played TWICE by Azela Robinson... another huge pair of shoes to fill..

Mark Tacher and Rene Casados... looking SOOOO forward to those two on screen together...

Just watched the extended trailer for Amor Bravio, the new Silvia Navarro tn that just started this week in Mexico. Wow! When is THAT coming to the U.S.? I can't wait!

Wow! is right! And I only saw the first 2 seconds! Now back to finish watching the whole thing!

I'm back... A chuppah?! Oh hellz yes!!!! I want this one NOW!!!!!

I know right! A Jewish protagonist!

Francisco Gattorno is in it too!! lol! he was the original actor for Mark Tacher's role in CdeP!!

ok so its official, ElTal is moving to 2pm EST/ 1pm CST and AdeP is on at 9pm EST/ 8pm cst

Martaivett--I saw 1pm EST on the screen tonight and that is how the Univision webpage has it listed. I would set your recorder to 1 pm, just in case.

Back to the Passion Pit for a moment--Is Ludwika Paleta a close relation to Dominika Paleta? It's not that a common name, is it?

Anita- They are sisters.

Thanks, Sara! I had no idea this was a threepeat. I loved El Manantial. It was fabulous and one of my top three telenovelas ever. I look forward to seeing Sabine Moussier and Cesar Evora, not to mention the boatload of other favorites of mine all in this one. It's got to be a powerhouse production--we're really due for one about now, anyway.

I've been so lost and miss everyone having bailed on the disaster that is El Tal. This one sounds all right, probably really melodramatic, but it has so many of my favs in it (even if they are playing stereotypical parts--poor Mark T-- anyone think Alonso (TDA) when reading his description) that I am gleefully game to watch.

Thank you very much for posting this.

My reservation is watching Angelique, to me watching her is like nails on a chalkboard, so I'm hoping you guys will snap me out of it so I can enjoy.


We have missed you too. See you over on the "Pit". Smile.


Wheeee! Just saw an ad for Abismo and Nailea Norvind willard an appearance in this one too! I love her!
