Esmeralda Pimentel and Erick Elías, confirmed as the stars of ‘Pasión de amor’2:38 PMNovelas Radar
After many rumors and auditions, it’s finally confirmed that Esmeralda Pimentel will be joining Erick Elías as the female protagonist of the upcoming Televisa production ‘Pasión de amor’. Pimentel will play Lucía, and Elías Marcelo.
It will be the first leading role for the beautiful actress, who had important roles in such novelas as ‘Cachito de cielo’ and ‘Abismo de pasión’. Such actresses as Danna Garcia and África Zavala also attended the auditions, but it was Pimentel who eventually got the role.
She was originally supposed to act alongside José Ron in the novela ‘Madre sustituta’, but the whole production was cancelled. She later auditioned for another upcoming novela, ‘La Malquerida’, but finally got her protagonic role in ‘Pasión de amor’.
The novela will be produced by Roberto Gómez Fernández (Cachito de cielo, Alma de hierro), written by Cuauhtémoc Blanco and María del Carmen Peña and directed by Francisco Franco. Unlike many others, it will be an original story.
Meanwhile, Patricia Reyes Espíndola, Claudia Ramírez, Luis Couturier, Helena Rojo, Eugenia Cauduro and René Strickler were also confirmed to be acting in this novela.
Filming will kick off in the next few weeks, and it will premiere in the first trimester of 2014.
