Colombian actress Catherine Siachoque said playing a villainess on the telenovela “Reina de Corazones” allowed her to explore someone with a complex psyche that was the opposite of her own personality, providing a “license to do things that are prohibited.”
The 42-year-old Siachoque stars on the Telemundo soap as Estefania Perez Hidalgo.
The character is a woman who made it out of poverty and has no scruples when it comes to getting what she wants, the actress said.
“This is a different character because this is an action soap opera. I even had to learn how to dance sexy and the truth is that I am having lots of fun,” Siachoque, who is married to Colombian actor Miguel Varoni, told Efe.
Siachoque has previously starred in the hit series “Pecados ajenos,” “Tierra de pasiones” and ”¿Donde esta Elisa?”
“The truth is that I am fascinated playing the bad girl and the public also loves to see me in those roles,” Siachoque said.
“Reina de Corazones,” which is set in Las Vegas, will start airing on July 8.
