The series with no ending
What went wrong? After the two week telenovela, "Mujer Bonita," Adriana Fonseca was finally given the lead role in this telenovela that seemed to have a lot of potential for success. (She was fired from her starring role in the children's telenovela "Amigos Para Siempre.") Jorge Salinas, straight from Lucero's "Mi Destino Eres Tu," and Alexis Ayala were to be the contenders for her love. The superb supporting cast included Ignacio Lopez Tarso (my favorite actor and one of the last surviving actors of the Golden Age of the Mexican Cinema), Juan Pelaez, Raquel Olmedo, Ana Martin, Jose Carlos Ruiz and Macaria. Juan Carlos Bonet (Nicolas Bravo in "La Antorcha Encendida") was cast as the villain. Everything seemed to be going okay when the plugged was pulled after only a month. A lot of the blame was placed on Fonseca, who was accused by many of being a poor actress. The gorgeous Adriana is nice to look at and I would classify myself as a fan of hers, but even I'll admit that she still needs a lot to learn before she can be considered at the same level as the actors who surrounded her in this canceled series. The story was okay, but whether it would have been excellent or bad will never be known since poor ratings doomed it.
