An actor can transform himself into anything, even in El Sol, the king of Latin music, the güero idol of the masses, a whole latin lover of the nineties. But it is not so easy to run away from yourself. Diego Boneta (Mexico City, 1990) was chosen four years ago to play Luis Miguel in the Netfllix series about his life. Two seasons have been aired and the third and final season is already underway. From the first episode, the thirst of his followers in the absence of the singer from the stage has been quenched by an actor who talks like him, moves like him, sings like him and even imitates his separation between his teeth. The Mexican actor saw so many videos of Luis Miguel, dissecting each interview, each concert, each public appearance, that he memorized until the exact moment in which he had to breathe. In this video interview, he reveals to EL PAÍS SEMANAL how he prepared for the role.
