Hi beautiful people,
I hope you are waiting for the Holiday as I do. As I told you guys, I have a lot of interviews coming soon in December and January. This interview is special because it is with someone that I admired and was a fan since I was little. I’m pretty sure that you watched ‘Sin senos no hay Paradiso’ (Without Breast There Is No Paradise).
It is a Columbian series produced and aired by Caracol TV. The show is based on the best-selling novel of the same name written by Gustavo Bolivar. The story is based on a young girl, Catalina, who lives in Pereira and becomes obsessed with getting breast implants in order to overcome poverty. Catalina decides to become a “prepago” (prepaid), a prostitute who has sex with drug traffickers in exchange for gifts, money, and social status. I really loved the story, because it is based on young girls’ traffic and as you know this needs to stop.
Juan is playing the brother of Catalina, Byron, a poor college boy who struggles to get rich and give a better life to his mom and sister. Unfortunately, Byron (Juan), gets involved with some drug and assassins mobsters and he gets killed by the police. I had a lot of fans asking me to start doing interviews with the cast of the series, so I picked Juan as my first one.
Besides being an amazing actor, (Without Breasts There Is No Paradise (2008), Cumbia Ninja (2013) and Heart’s Decree (2016), he is a very good singer. You can find his youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJCmZlvTMSr9vh0B-0sBzew
