Santo Domingo, Apr 26 (EFE) .- The coronavirus pandemic made Colombian actor Fabián Ríos go from being “obsessive” with his work to being so with his family, and at this point in his career his priority is a “better quality of lifetime”.
With almost 20 years in front of the cameras in soap operas like “Without breasts there is no paradise”, “Doña Bella” or “Without breasts there is paradise”, Ríos participates this Monday in Santo Domingo, in the premiere of “It is not what it seems “, a romantic comedy that stars alongside the Dominicans Frank Perozo and Nahsla Bogaert and the Venezuelan Gaby Espino.
“I have decided not to make productions that take time away from my family. When I have to travel, my family will go with me. I went from being obsessive about work to being obsessive about my family. I am involved in the education of my children and in the taking care of my wife, “said the actor to Efe.
He explained that from the covid-19 “the order changed” and that the disease has left as a lesson, “indisputably”, that the most important thing is “God, family and work.”
Ríos, based in the United States, said that filming “It’s not what it seems” made him “have fun” a lot, since the plot is aimed at all audiences.
He said that his first experience in the Dominican Republic has made him feel “at home” and “grateful” to shoot a movie on an island “so wonderful.”
“I have felt very comfortable with the discipline of the producer, with the treatment of my colleagues, whoever they are, they will always have my respect, my honor when acting and above all the ability to surprise me, play a game like children serious “, said the interpreter, 40 years old.
Ríos, who has had two children with his wife, the actress Yuly Ferreira, said he felt “very happy” because the cinema in Latin America “goes from the better to the top.”
In “It is not what it seems” also act the Puerto Rican Jaime Mayol, the Dominicans Evelyna Rodríguez and Pepe Sierra and the urban singer Chimbala.
Rap singer Myke Towers, from Puerto Rico, has a special participation.
The direction of the film is Argentine David Maler, Nashla Bogaert’s husband, who together with Frank Perozo have become the favorite couple of the Dominican public.
The Caribbean Films production company advanced in a statement that the film narrates the sentimental adventures of five great friends who must face compromising situations with their respective partners, with disastrous consequences, but no less funny.
