I’ve added to the gallery three promotional photos of ‘Everybody Loves Somebody’ to the gallery. I also have added two magazine scans from Caras (the interview will be translated into English shortly) and the cover of Red Capital (I’m trying to get the magazine)
As part of the promotion of her new film, ‘Everybody Loves Somebody’ Karla is gracing the February issue of Glamour Mexico. The photographs were taken by Frankie Batista. I’ve added the outtakes and the cover to the gallery and as soon as I get the scans those will be added as well.
GLAMOUR — The first time I interviewed Karla Souza was for the second season of Niño Santo. By then, the world already knew (and loved) her, as she starred in Los Nobles, one of the highest grossing films in Mexico, that catapulted her career to the top.
A few years later we speak again, now as our cover girl in Glamor, and Karla is a different woman. Currently, her work schedule is divided between Mexico and the United States, she is married, she has become a source of total inspiration (if you need a confidence boost, do not miss her TED Talk, “Sweets are the fruits of adversity” ), Has more than one million followers together on Twitter and Instagram, who follow her adventures closely; Is in the series How To Get Away With Murder, where he works with producer Shonda Rhimes and Oscar-nominated actress Viola Davis and, if that were not enough, she starred in the blockbuster Mexican film of 2016, ‘¿Qué Culpa Tiene el Niño?’ Unstoppable, the year begins with the film ‘Everybody Loves Someone’, directed by Catalina Aguilar Mastretta; A romantic comedy that talks about saying goodbye to the past to bring in the new (it will sound easy, but it is one of the most difficult things in life).
In short, everything in her panorama is brilliant (and to think that she still have a long way to go!). Yes, Karla has changed. But from the first time I spoke to her, to this day, what remains the same is her quest to perfect her work, to be happy and the world to be proud of her. And she has succeeded.
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.Read More

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.

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.
