Colombian actress Aura Cristina Geithner will be the villain in TV Azteca’s new soap opera “Quererte asi” - to be launched on April 16 - in which she will star with Mexican actors Francisco Angelini and Maria Jose Madan.

The actors and producers on Wednesday night gave a presentation to the press and explained various aspects of the new show, which tells the story of the conflicts that arise in the romantic relationship between a rich girl and a poor young man.

Local media emphasized the international career of Geithner, who garnered widespread recognition for her role in the TV Azteca soap “Cielo Rojo,” in which she played Mariana.

Geithner said that in the new production she will be a “woman with a lot of money, with power, attractive but cold, calculating, sarcastic, who knows what she wants, but her Achilles heel is her ambition.”

In recent years, the Colombian actress has managed to cement her image as a great actress in her role as the favorite villain after beginning her career as “the good girl, admired and valued.”

“In ‘Secretos de Amor,’ which I recorded in Miami, it gave me satisfaction to play a villain for the first time,” she said.

The actress added that she is very happy to be in Mexico.
