Netflix Star Carolina Ramirez Is More Than Just A Stellar Actress, She’s A Social Media Highlight

If you’re Colombian then you already know about the talented Carolina Ramirez. If not, you must watch all 82 episodes of La Reina del Flow on Netflix and learn about her skills. All it takes is a deep social media dive, which we all seem to have time for these days, to find out that she is so much more than her character on the Netflix show. Here’s what we’ve been able to gather about the Colombian actress.

Meet Carolina Ramirez.

Netflix purchased the Colombian telenovela of the year and all 82 episodes are streaming, featuring this beautiful angel. I know you miss telenovelas now that cable is a relic of the past generation.

She’s stunning, and the world is starting to take notice.

So many people are hoping that she will be the love of their lives but she’s pretty busy right now so just hold tight.

In La Reina del Flow, she’s plays Yeimy Montoya, a girl who was wronged by Charly Flow. Don’t worry, after he frames her and puts her in jail for 17 years, she comes back as an undercover DEA agent and ruins his life. ????

Teatro Colón describes the Colombian play as “a perfect and unforgettable mix of silence, music, surreal humor and a body placed on the edge of the abyss. The stage is poetically constructed and is used for an eternal wake, an old house in the middle of a solitary place that transforms subtly into a furious sea, into a room where everything comes to life, where an overflowing party will happen, where a woman will transform in bird, where a demented game of apparitions and disappearances will take over everything.”

Her selfie game is something we should aspire to.

After you watch her play a tough woman on “La Reina del Flow,” you might be surprised to see all of the photos of her smiling and happy.

She also has a sense of humor.

Carolina is of the people. Don’t expect to see a Kardashian-esque feed when you visit her social media pages. She is more about being real than fake and “perfect.”

Ramirez has never been afraid to show her true face.

Actually, this is her Instagram avatar picture. You won’t find a single childhood photo that proves she was a happy child. She’s been plotting revenge since Day 1.

It’s kind of perfect when you see them.

Let’s not discuss the creepy clown that is probably causing her to make this face. Let’s instead marvel at the fact that every Latina grew up with this haircut.

This Gemini beauty is 35 years old.

Ramirez will be the first to post a photo of her getting skin rejuvenation work done. Like with surgical marker all over her face. She’s the most transparent queen you’ll see.

Her skillset as a dancer and singer make her a Renaissance woman of Colombia.

She was made famous in La Pola and is basically huge in the Colombian telenovela world. She has also starred in La hija del mariachi.

While she’s a rapper queen in La Reina del Flow, she’s plays a salsa queen en Ciudad delirio.

She plays Angie, a salsa dancer who has her own salsa school. She meets Javier, a Spanish pharmacologist away on a business trip to Colombia where the two fall in love.

Before you get too ahead of yourself, she is happily married.

Ramirez has been married to an Argentine businessman, named Mariano Bacaleinik since 2010.

She’s like super close with her brother.

English: “When I want to be in a good mood I think about this man … my brother. We do not always get along well; We had moments of confrontation (with blood included) like most siblings.”

“Te amo hermano, mi vida habría sido incompleta sin vos.”

For no reason whatsoever, Ramirez will tell the Instagram world how much she loves her hermanito.

Caption: “El querernos incondicionalmente lo aprendimos con los años, pero fundamentado en todos los momentos (buenos y malos) que estuvimos juntos como familia desde mis tres años cuando llegó a ocupar un lugar reservado y exclusivo en mi corazón. Él no cumple años hoy, no está enfermo ni estamos tan lejos. Hoy es un día cualquiera en el que se me dió por decirte: te amo hermano, mi vida habría sido incompleta sin vos ❤️????”

Ramirez also likes to wear beards in public.

I mean, this post is about how hermosa and how dorky this human is. Maybe it’s to disguise her fame in public, maybe it’s just because.

It’s just a thing she does.

There are so many photos of her on social media wearing fake facial hair in public. It’s kind of amazing how well she can pull it off.

Like our moms, she has to keep her facial hair under control.

She might be the goofiest, non-serious artist in existence right now.

You just can’t imagine that this woman takes herself too seriously. She takes narcoleptic naps in the midst of art projects, and the people around her know that she not only wouldn’t care about this photo op, but that she’d post it on the internet to her 700k followers.

You can watch 61 hours of Ramirez on Netflix right now.

Trust that La Reina del Flow was picked up for a Part 2 for next summer. Watch with abandon.

Turns out Lil Nas X has more than just country rap up his sleeve. The 21-year-old “Old Town Road” rapper has a penchant for literature too.

On Tuesday, the rapper revealed that he’s written a children’s book called C Is for Country.

“I’m dropping the best kids’ book of all time soon!” the rapper shared in a Tweet earlier this week before adding that he couldn’t “wait to share it” with his fans and young readers.

Nas’s children’s book is being published under Random House Kids, a division of Penguin Random House. It is currently available for preorder on their site.

According to the Random House Kids’ website, the book is a story about Lil Nas X and Panini the pony.

“Join superstar Lil Nas X—who boasts the longest-running #1 song in history—and Panini the pony on a joyous journey through the alphabet from sunup to sundown. Experience wide-open pastures, farm animals, guitar music, cowboy hats, and all things country in this debut picture book that’s perfect for music lovers learning their ABCs and for anyone who loves Nas’s signature genre-blending style,” Random House describes in its explanation.

The book is illustrated by Theodore Taylor III and promises “plenty of hidden surprises for Nas’ biggest fans.”

C Is for County comes out Jan. 5.

Netflix’s Newest Musical Teen Hit Series Stars a 16-Year-Old Afro-Latina Newcomer

Netflix’s Newest Musical Teen Hit Series Stars a 16-Year-Old Afro-Latina Newcomer

A new teen series has dropped on Netflix that the internet can’t stop talking about. The newest cultural phenomenon that has hit the juggernaut streaming service is a musical series called Julie and the Phantoms, based on the 2011 Brazilian show of the same name.

The series follows a 16-year-old insecure girl named Julie who has lost her love of music after the tragic death of her mother. But with the help of a (stay with us here) band of musical ghosts she stumbles across in her garage, she soon re-discovers her love of singing and performing. Backed by her band of “phantoms”, Julie confidently takes the stage again, blowing everyone away in the process. ,

But the wacky, heartfelt story-line isn’t the only reason people are excited about the show. The buzz around the show is building because its star, 16-year-old newcomer Madison Reyes, is an Afro-Latina singer-actress of Puerto Rican descent.

Before landing the role of Julie, Reyes was just a regular shmegular Nuyorican girl going to high school in Brooklyn. Needless to say, the process of auditioning for Julie and the Phantoms was both a whirlwind and a game-changer.

“I found out about Julie and the Phantoms through my school. At first I was nervous to send my video in, but after talking to some friends, I sent it in and got a call back,” Reyes told Refinery 29. “From there it was just figuring out when I could fly to L.A. When I finally made it out there, the audition process lasted two days.”

Reyes, for one, understands the burden of her load. “[Julie] is Latin American, she’s got textured hair, she’s a strong and independent female character,” Reyes recently told the LA Times. “As a person of color who wants more diversity [on-screen], I’m kind of scared about the hate comments that I’ve seen other people have to go through, especially women.”

As if having an Afro-Latina actress at the center of a popular Netflix show wasn’t exciting enough, the series is also being helmed by Mexican-American director and all-around legend Kenny Ortega. For those of you unfamiliar with Ortega, he is the creative genius who directed bonafide classics like High School Musical and Hocus Pocus.

Ortega has been publicly effusive in his praise of Reyes. “She has this raw talent that can take on any genre of music, and this promise of greatness that excited everybody,” he told the LA Times. “And yet she’s so relatable and grounded.”

Fans are already calling for a second season after watching the cliffhanger season finale. Reyes, herself, can’t wait to get back in the shoes of Julie. When asked in an interview about where we’ll see her next, she responded: “Hopefully in the next season of Julie and the Phantoms!”. We second that wish.
