‘How to Get Away with Murder’ is back for its third season and it was a shocking start. Laurel has an interesting storyline in this season as it has been confirmed we will find out more about her background which is very exciting. I just uploaded 410 High Definition captures of Karla in this episode.
WWD – Karla Souza may have been a new face to American audiences when she first appeared on Shonda Rhimes’ cult-favorite, “How to Get Away with Murder,” but she was in no way an up-and-comer. Souza, 30, was a full-fledged star in her native Mexico, appearing on the covers of magazines and as a face of Cover Girl. After appearing in the highest-grossing Mexican film of all time, as well as the highest-grossing Spanish language film in North America, she decided to try her luck in L.A. The risk paid off, and she landed the role of law student Laurel Castillo in the Viola Davis-helmed “How to Get Away with Murder,” which returns tonight for season three.
WWD chatted with Souza while she was on a break from filming about uprooting her life for the show, what to expect from the third season and what she’s learned from playing Laurel.
WWD: How did you end up getting the role of Laurel?
Karla Souza: A movie I had done in Mexico got me representation here, and they were like, “Oh, there’s this thing called pilot season, you should come.” And so I was like, “Sure.” And then that thing called pilot season ended up with me signing a seven-year contract. I basically moved my whole life on the basis of a pilot.
WWD:You’ve previously said that first pilot season was a fairly rocky experience.
K.S.:Oh, it is something that I don’t think people could understand unless they do it. Not only logistically — the traffic in L.A. is horrendous and the auditions are spread out through the entire city — but then one character is a prostitute and the other is a mom of two children and the other one is a Marine. And you’re changing in the bathroom of a McDonald’s and you’re trying to change your hair, change your makeup, and you’re sweating — and at the same time you just left an audition where they treated you very poorly and you felt humiliated and you ended up crying in the bathroom, calling your managers saying “I never want to do this again.” But then you have to wipe your tears off and walk in and pretend like you know what you’re doing in the next audition. It’s just horrendous.
Karla features as one of the success stories as a Mexican who has triumphed in Los Angeles. Here are the scans of the magazine, it includes a new photo from her InStyle photoshoot and it’s amazing.
QUIEN – Was discriminated for her nationality, that’s why since she resides here she decided to end that stigma in the best way: working. Now she’s one of the leading actresses in the hit TV show How to Get Away with Murder.
How’s your life in Los Angeles?
The place where I live (Pacific Palisades) is very family oriented. The kids ride their bikes, play frisbee, water wars. Two steps from my home there’s a mountain where you can hike: we like to do night walks. There’s a beach culture, surf, relax… There’s a small town two minutes away; we like to walk there or in our bikes to buy ice cream, people walk their dogs… Very calm!
What has been the most emotive moment since you live there?
When they told me I’ve got the role of Laurel Castillo in How to Get Away with Murder.
How do you see Mexicans in LA?
Very prepared. The ones I know, excel: they do social work, hardworkers, reliable. They are a gift for the United States!
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve faced?
Been discriminated for your nationality. I can’t stand it! I hope that my work can end that stigma.

After a few months with the same design, I decided it was time for the change and I wanted something more simple. I love everything about the new design. I used photos from Karla’s recent InStyle photoshoot because they were amazing. Also big thanks to Umitohoshi for the premade.
As I updated earlier, Karla graces the cover of the September and 10th years anniversary issue of InStyle Mexico. I finally got the scans of the magazine, and she looks amazing. There are so many pictures inside and they all are beautiful. She was photographed by Santiago Ruiseñor. I must admit this is my favorite photoshoot so far.
