Jimenez, Raúl Méndez, Héctor Jiménez, Edgar Flores, Omar Chaparro y la actriz chilena Fernanda Urrejola (Cry Macho, Narcos: México, y Party of Five) -who plays the role of a woman called Inés- are joining the cast.
“Inés is a courageous woman, she knows what her family needs, she is very protective, she protects herself and her children a lot. She loves her husband, but she worries a lot about what she teaches her children and how to be a mother who takes care of them," Urrejola said in conversation with AL DÍA.
The Chilean actress (Santiago, 1981) said that the main challenge when interpreting this character was to gain the trust of the child actors and create with them a space of fraternity in which the affection of a family reigns. “I am not a mother so that is always one of my main challenges. Of course I want to be in the future, so that instinct is in me somehow. That's why I think working with children is special, you have to create a space for them to feel comfortable,” she added.
