I had some free time this weekend and I decided to change the looks of the website, both in the main site and in the gallery. For the main site I used photos from the ‘Fernanda’ shoot, while on the gallery I decided to use photos from the ‘In Style’ shoot. Both layouts are mobile friendly which I find extremely helpful, big thank you to Sin 21 for the theme.

Hope you love the new look just like I do, and if you see anything wrong please let me know.

Karla Souza, Kate del Castillo and Ana de la Reguera grace the cover of Vanity Fair Mexico.

All three are beautiful, but in very different ways. Karla Souza’s blue eyes are even more impressive in person. She is spontaneous, warm and greets the production team as if they were lifelong friends.

Karla Souza packed her bags last year to join the cast of How to Get Away with Murder, series produced by Shonda Rimes (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal) next to Viola Davis, who says she learned the difference between “playing a TV character and a human being.” Souza came to star the second highest grossing film in the history of Mexican cinema with more than seven million viewers and more than 300 million pesos to ten weeks of its release, according to Forbes: The Noble Family (2013). In Hollywood these credentials matter little; she also had to throw the dice many times before winning the jackpot. “One day in Los Angeles is to see how many doors you will whip in the face. It is very strong, “it is not the same Karla that a while ago was screaming and laughing at something that she was looking on a phone, now she is serious and there is some frustration in her voice.

With a mane of shiny mahogany tresses, piercing blue eyes, and those magnificent eyebrows, it’s little wonder that, within a few short years, Karla Souza rocketed to the top among Mexico’s A-list actresses. But, as she quickly found, international fame means nothing during Hollywood’s merciless TV-pilot season. “It was so terrifying,” the 29-year-old recalls with a laugh. “I thought to myself, This is the worst thing that anyone could ever do.” Souza, who had appeared on dozens of Mexican magazine covers and who even starred in 2013’s Nosotros Los Nobles (We Are the Nobles), the highest grossing Spanish-language film in the U.S., was treated no differently than any other of the thousands of actresses looking for their big break in the US.

But Souza, who was born in Mexico City and raised in Aspen and the South of France, became one of the lucky few to book a pilot during her first season. And what a pilot it was: Souza was cast as the enigmatic law student Laurel Castillo on Shonda Rhimes’s runaway 2014 hit series, How to Get Away with Murder. “I didn’t really know much about ShondaLand,” she says, referring to Rhimes’s production company. “And suddenly the pilot got picked up, everything started moving, and we broke records in the opening episode. I couldn’t believe what people were telling me, ‘It’s the highestrated new show on television.’”

However, her success was hard-won. Souza was committed to her future profession after landing her first role at age 7 in a ski flick called Aspen Extreme. But her parents had other plans. “They always put conditions on me becoming an actress,” she says, like getting the best grades and applying to different universities. Souza completed her degree at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London, followed by an intensive Stanislavsky course in Moscow. From there, she returned to Mexico City and made a whopping 15 movies in five years.

For all her world traveling, Philadelphia remains one of Souza’s most cherished cities. “We filmed the pilot [here] last March; I fell in love with Philly,” she says. “The cast calls it our ‘honeymoon’ phase. We were all staying in a hotel together, so it was like summer camp. We’d just chat away and get to know each other.” But as peripatetic as Souza has been, she now relishes the constancy of working in television. “I think being on a TV show is the best stability an actor can ask for,” she says. “And to be working with Shonda Rhimes on one of the highest-watched shows, it just doesn’t get better.”

Karla is in Mexico shooting her new film “Que culpa tiene el niño”. A film by Mexican filmmaker Gustavo Loza. Karla said she’s very excited to go back to Mexico and working in a comedy after finishing the first season of”How To Get Away With Murder.”

At a press conference, the director, who has also directed films like “Paradas Continuas” and “La otra familia”, explained that the new production is a family comedy, which has the intention of making people laugh with a cute message.

The plot, he explained, is about a successful 29-year-old daughter of a politician  who by “accident of fate” is pregnant and does not know who the father is.

Loza confessed that the main character was created especially for Karla Souza, “She is a super hardworking and talented actress.”

Since Karla needs to be back in the United States by July due HTGAWM, the film will be shot in five weeks with locations in Mexico City; Coyoacan, Santa Fe and Santa Maria La Ribera, along with Acapulco and Morelos.

Regarding her work in this comedy, Karla stated that since she read the script she knew she had to do because “it is amazing and because he had a long time without making films in Mexico”

Karla, who serves as co-producer on a film, said that this position has enabled it to provide more than just the interpretation of a role, as some changes in the script and their relationships with brands, among others.

I’m so excited to see Karla in a new film, I’m sure it’s gonna be great. Stay tune for more updates.
