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.
played by SQUEEEEEEE! Livia Brito!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

played by Raquel Olmedo
The town herbalist. Everyone brands her as a witch. She is the grandmother of Paloma for whom she has cared for and raised since the girl's mother died.
However you managed to catch my fancy with:
played by Altair Jarabo
...Capricious and selfish...
just like I like her...
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.
What a nice job you did here. Like Blue Lass, I am a real fan of Raquel Olmedo.
Love the rest of the cast...
Does anyone know where this one is supposed to take place?
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.
If they had gotten Azela Robinson like they had planned then the two of them would have been in every version of this story.
Why are we SQUEEEEing over Livia Brito? I can SQUEEEE, just helps if I know why I'm doing it.
Rosemary la Otra
Interesting that they snagged Altair Jarabo. She would have been dynamite as our weepy, self-centered Lucrecia and added a new dimension to demented.
Rene Casados did play a priest in "Fuego en la Sangre", and I thought he did quite a convincing job of it.
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.
