Alicia Machado Proud of Her Role in Univision Sitcom

MIAMI – Venezuelan-born actress and model Alicia Machado says she feels honored to portray a Mexican character in “Una familia con suerte,” a situation comedy that airs five nights a week on Univision.

The show depicts the adventures of two families, one rich and one poor, whose destinies are altered by an unexpected twist of fate.

Along with Machado, the cast includes Mayrin Villanueva, Arath Torres and Luz Elena Gonzalez, among others.

“It’s an honor that they chose me for this role, because I adore Mexico and I’m happy to portray the nationality,” Machado, the child of a Cuban father and a Spanish mother, told Efe.

The character also appeals to Machado.

“Candelaria, alias Candela, is neither good nor bad; she’s real. Besides, the idea of mixing comedy with the telenovela genre attracts me,” the actress said. “And this, in particular, is a very beautiful story, with principles and family values.”

Machado, winner of the 1995 Miss Universe competition, appeared in her first telenovela, “Samantha,” just three years later, and went on to star in “Infierno en el paraiso,” “Mambo y Canela” and “Hasta que el dinero nos separe.” EFE
