Guy Ecker Bárbara de Regil: Tell us a little about Relatives by force
BR: “It has been complicated, so Guy and I are very happy to present Relatives by force, which is this new series that is light comedy, love, melodrama. It is a new story that you are going to love and it is going to distract you from the world out there so that you can focus a bit with us, very funny where the character of Guy brings my character to Los Angeles, looking for love with him . She arrives without papers, without family, with nothing and that is where everything begins ”.
GE: “It’s something we managed to do during the pandemic, during a very difficult year that was for everyone and production took great care of us. It was difficult to work with three units with so many people, but Telemundo and Once Once took great care of that part. We did constant tests 5 times a week to keep the group going ”.
Guy Ecker Bárbara de Regil: How has the relationship with the actors been?
GE: “It’s an incredible group, Telemundo really had a hit when they did the casting. It is a diverse group, but very funny and precisely the theme of the novel is that. It is a Mexican family that comes to the United States with everything and the pig and chickens. That clash of cultures and the cast could not have been better ”.
Tell me how did you become passionate about Carmen? BR: “Yes, not really. This character, of course, I always fully immerse myself in it and I enjoy it a lot, but I really enjoyed this character. It’s not that Rosario’s I haven’t enjoyed it, but Rosario’s was very exhausting and if it ended very badly I fainted on set ”.
Guy Ecker Bárbara de Regil: The character of Carmen
BR: “My body was like what is happening, you are having a very bad time and not here, here I enjoyed it very much, a scene has finished and I was happy because each scene has a vibe, each scene has something, each scene with gay that we made, obviously love, heartbreak, fights, but it was always like a funny thing ”.
“Obviously I say melodrama, that this is also beautiful, but no, I enjoyed this character a lot and yesterday when we saw the first chapter that I was watching Carmen, I thought that I love you, she is too much and I like her very much and I love the contrast What does he do with the character of Guy, which is that he worked it so well that he is a writer that you really see in his roll, but he falls protectively in love, but he is excited. In other words, they do a wonderful thing that I enjoyed infinitely ”.
Guy Ecker Bárbara de Regil: How much of your experiences did you get into George?
GE: “Well look at George certainly that, the frustration. Los Angeles is a town where all the waiters and all the people you see are aspiring actors or writers or doing something. So it is a very palpable feeling that you recognize when you are starting your career and things are more difficult ”.
“If I was a waiter, I worked in private parties of very large actors and at those times one says well, this is a stage. I hope one day to be working with these people and I have been very fortunate in my career, precisely because I am bilingual. I was looking for a route through Hollywood and one day someone came to me and said ‘Hey, you speak Spanish, go do a casting in Spanish’ and well, it hadn’t occurred to me and it was that way that triggered my career and I’m very lucky and very grateful for that ”.
How long did it take your life to make Carmen?
BR: “He always takes a little bit out of life, honestly, I always do. For example, Carmen told her that she was very direct and that she said everything like that. In the text it was not written so directly and I made it so that it says everything and of course, they always put those tints on it ”.
And if Carmen lost her father and it is not that she has taken care of the family so much, but she did become very close to her mother and that is seen in the first chapter when she says goodbye to her, it is very strong for Carmen Because if you want to go flying, but you don’t want to leave your family, that’s why when the family arrives it is wonderful. But yes, we always put him in I don’t know, I don’t know Guy, but obviously you always bring experiences and remember things ”. Filed Under: Guy Ecker Bárbara de Regil
Did your life experiences of losing your mother help you build George?
GE: “Definitely that is a loss that only the one who suffers knows it and it is a very difficult moment that one can hold onto in some way when doing scenes of that kind. But that’s exactly what this character launches, because the character is going through a very bad time in life. In other words, he finds his wife with another man, his children abandon him and his career is very bad and his mother dies ”.
“And he is a guy who had somehow rejected those Hispanic roots that he had and having to spread his mother’s ashes back in town is what really causes the change and launches what history is, because through That moment Carmen comes and not only saves her life, literally because she is about to die, falling from the cathedral, but figuratively as well. He falls madly in love with her, she becomes his muse and simplicity and honesty, and through her eyes, he rediscovers not only his culture, but himself. And from there he gains the strength of life to be able to return to the angels and face the failure that is his life at that moment ”. Filed Under: Guy Ecker Bárbara de Regil
Guy, how do you get along with Barbara?
GE: “Obviously Barbara is a beautiful and talented woman, so there is no problem there, but she is also very spontaneous and improvises a lot and she has a photographic memory. So she learned about the scenes when she arrived on the set. I learned them the night before ”.
“So they were interesting moments because she threw curves and I had to respond in some way. So I think that was for something like cool and fun between the characters that I hope it gets through. I think so, because I saw them last night and the public liked them too. A chemistry that really worked very well, very well ”. Filed Under: Guy Ecker Bárbara de Regil
The invitation to the public
BR: “Do not miss” Relatives by force “, give yourselves the opportunity to see the first chapter, you are really going to love it. It is something fresh, something new, something with which you are going to lie in your bed, calm, without stress, without anything, because that is the point and that is why we work. We are so looking forward to it for you, my people ”.
GE: “Obviously, friends, we have something here for you that I hope will bring a little joy to life for all of you. The people of Latin America who are here in the United States, who we love very much, Colombians, Venezuelans, Mexicans, everyone who is here is a project that I think somehow transmits a little that struggle in which you are here. and in a light way, so that they have fun watching it, so that we are not confronted, but united ”.
