She has participated in the highest-grossing Mexican films, working on a television series in Hollywood with Viola Davis and will release her first film as a producer.
At 30 years old, Karla has worked as an actress in film, theater and television, and just debuted as a producer on the film “¿Qué culpa tiene el niño?”
Three years ago it seemed that Karla Souza had reached her highest point thanks to the success of “Nosotros los nobles” and “No se aceptan devoluciones”, the highest grossing films in the history of Mexico; but in fact, it was barely the takeoff of a career that promises much, both at home and throughout the world, because the following year she joined the cast of How to Get Away with Murder, starring Viola Davis. As if that were not enough, at 30 years Karla is starting as a producer with the film “¿Que culpa tiene el ñino?, which, as she admits, has been a school for her, and this was the perfect excuse to interview her about the situation women live in Hollywood.
How has it been for you to enter the film production?
Now that I’m on the other side I admire and respect more the producer, because I was in their shoes. As an actress I am aware of the budget, locations filming and editing.
Did you change your way of seeing acting after becoming a producer?
I think both sides communicate. As an actress I know I have to give interviews to the press, but rather than get mad saying I do not want to do something, enters the producer in me and tells me that interviews help to promote the film. It is an interesting internal dialogue, because not everyone thinks so. For an actress character it is important, but if no one sees the tape will not work. I feel that being a producer has helped me even in the show I do, How to Get Away with Murder, which they always appreciate me for being so cooperative.
