The Media Asks Mayra About The Playing The Character Of Enedina In Narcos: Mexico

Mayra About The Playing The Character

If you are a follower of Narcos: Mexico, then you should know that Mayra Hermosillo is quite famous. She plays the character of Enedina Arellano, a famous drug lord. So, when the media asked her whether she felt pressure while playing the character, she answered affirmatively. In fact, Mayra said, “Yes, I was very scared. At the beginning, I was very scared because you don’t know what (the cartel) are thinking…you don’t know how they will take it if they watch it.”

Well, she did mention that it was a tough role for her to play because the whole cartel world is very alien to her. That’s the reason why she went to her therapist. It’s also true that because of playing the role of Enedina, she had a lot of fears. 

Especially, before going to her therapist, she felt scare about the whole situation. Due to this reason, she didn’t even know how to play this role. Her therapist said, “Mayra don’t worry you will never know this kind of world, even if you’re doing it and the creators are writing it, none of you will really know what’s going on in that world because it’s a very dark world”.

Considering the fact that drug lord Enedina Arellano Felix is still in action, Hermosillo’s fear is justified. Moreover, one should also note that someone killed one of the show’s location scouts, Carlos Munoz Portal while he was looking for places where they could film the series. The sources tell us that someone shot Munoz hours after he went to a location in Temascalapa to take pictures for Netflix.
