As we told you a few days ago, Pedro Fernandez will be the protagonist of ‘Malverde, The Patron Saint’ and he himself confirmed it this morning in a visit he made in the new show of the mornings of Telemundo, ‘Today’.
“Excited with a wonderful project that we will soon start recording … I am the protagonist of this new telenovela / series called Jesús Malverde, with a lot of emotion, a lot of joy”Pedro Fernández began by saying and thus confirms what we are telling you.
There were many names that were put on the table, and others with whom they speculated … However, as we told you, Telemundo decided to form with Pedro Fernandez.
The singer of ‘La Mochila Azul’ assured that his family is happy and excited about this challenge in a character that he had never done in his career, which always relied on romantic comedies.
“There are many things for which I have decided to accept this project, because it is a wonderful production, a beautiful story that people are not going to be able to take off … The first reason is because the time it had taken from one production to another was enough for people to rest a little from my image “Fernández assured Adamari López and Chiquibaby.
During the interview, Fernando Colunga was never mentioned, nor why the change and even less that Fernández accepted when the series was left without a protagonist.
Let’s remember that, after a year talking about returning with the project of his dreams, Fernando Colunga lost the role because he would not have wanted to travel to Mexico without being vaccinated against COVID-19.
This marks Pedrito’s return to telenovelas, after he left in 2014. ‘Until the end of the world’, in the middle of the recordings alleging health problems, but also because he would have to put himself in the shoes prepared for Colunga.
Fernández was already part of Telemundo when he was coach of ‘The voice Kids’ in 2015 and 2016, which was his last television job.
