After Angelique Boyer, Maite Perroni and Thalía all said, "Thanks, but no thanks," to the lead role in the telenovela "La Tempestad," producer Salvador Mejía confirmed the role will be played by former Miss Universe, Ximena Navarrete.
Picking the right person to give life to this character was no easy task, explains Salvador: "It's very difficult because, the truth is, Silvia [Navarro] was great. She's a great, great actress, but this is about typology, chemistry," he told Televisa Espectáculos. "That's why this is the right decision."
But don't call him superficial, the beauty queen is gorgeous, but the Mexican producer didn't select her to play the role only because of her looks. The Guadalajara native also studied acting, which gave her an extra edge, says Salvador.
