So the concept of "six degrees of separation" is that any two people on this planet are six or fewer acquaintance links apart. In this case I'm one person away from Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera better known as EL CHAPO!, one of the most notorious Mexican drug lords in Mexico. How? Through Kate Del Castillo. I got to work with Antonio Banderas, Jennifer López and Kate in the film Bordertown directed by Gregory Nava. The film was a muddled mess. More of a bad script really. Antonio was delightful, Jennifer was all nerves and Kate was just cool, nobody saw her sweat anything. I worked on set for two weeks. Fun gig. Here's a portrait I took of Kate while filming on location in Albuquerque. The film also starred Sonia Braga, Martin Sheen and the phenomenal Mexican actress, Maya Zapata.
Back to EL CHAPO. Kate is the bad ass actress who got intertwined with Sean Penn and in my opinion used by Penn to interview EL CHAPO directly for Rolling Stone Magazine. Penn ended up looking foolish and Kate had to put out a lot of dangerous fires related to EL CHAPO. And of course, Kate is the original QUEEN OF THE SOUTH from the Mexican tv series, LA REINA DEL SUR! Did I mention that I then ended up on the American version of that hit show QUEEN OF THE SOUTH? Ha!
