Your new movie Diablo Rojo PTY - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

Its a story about folk stories of Panama told in a classic 80s style. My character is Josefina/ La Tulivieja, from the tale about the girl that lost her baby or threw it in the river and is damned because of this, mixed with this 17 year old, Josefina, from Chiriqui that is in the countryside of Panama.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Alejandra Araz can we find in Josefina?

 

First I had to change my hair color and do some tests for hair extension so I can achieve the look of a girl from the countryside. I also had to work on creating this naive and sweet girl that got fucked up by this older guy and the fear and abandonment makes her bitter. The sweet girl is not so much like me, so I created that and created a rage that made sense with her character. For me, I was also trying to give some motivation to Josefina and the tale with La Tulivieja, I am definitely on her side and Melida's. I also got to create the scream of La Tulivieja, and it has something to do with the destiny of Josefina. There is no Alejandra in Josefina. But this is my second time playing that same character, Josefina/La Tulivieja.

 

How did you get involved with the project in the first place?

 

I know Sol [Sol Moreno interview - click here] and Jordi [J. Oskura Njera interview - click here] from the art scene in Panama, they called me when they were doing the second casting call, they were looking for Josefina and Melida, also Leo [Leo Wiznitzer interview - click here] had worked with me in a horror short film and he talked to Jordi and Sol about me.

 

To what extent could you identify with Diablo Rojo PTY's horror theme?

 

I love witches so I connect a lot with that part of the movie, and I like that the witches and La Tulivieja are going after the bus driver and all the other men, I identify with that kind of horror because I want the monsters and witches to get them.

 


What can you tell us about Diablo Rojo PTY's director Sol Moreno, and what was your collaboration like?

 

Sol is pretty sure of the images she wants to show, she works very well with Jordi so they have a great chemistry between the direction and the script. Sol also knows about different aspects of the movie regarding art department and special effects, so that makes her a director that knows what she is doing when directing horror. The collaboration was great, she knew how she wanted the character of Josefina, and then they had an acting coach for us that prepared us for acting in a horror movie.

 

Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

I just had to go like four times, and each time was cool and in different places. I really enjoyed making the movie. They always told me the scary things happen when it was not my turn to shoot, I guess it was because La Tulivieja was me.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I'm going to be be doing theater, creating some new comedy projects with my partner Simon Tejeira, who plays the priest when he's young in Diablo Rojo PTY. And now I have started working on a project for a documentarist from Panama, Ana Endara, and Pilar Moreno, an artist from Spain who lives in Panama. About a woman from the countryside of Panama that had some particular way of collecting memorabilia. I wont be acting here but doing some work with voices.

What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?
