‘Ingobernable’ Is Giving Americans A Different View Of Mexico And Kate Del Castillo Is Here For It

“We’re showing Mexico just the way it is.”

“Ingobernable” is a high-paced thrill ride for anyone who loves political dramas. Kate del Castillo plays Mexico’s First Lady Emilia Urquiza who has lost faith in her husband and decides to leave him. Things go wrong when the president plummets from a balcony to his death. What follows is a whirlwind of nonstop running for First Lady Urquiza as she tries to stay safe during the investigation into President Urquiza’s untimely and questionable death.

First Lady Urquiza is a groundbreaking character, according to del Castillo, who spoke with mitú about the Netflix original series.

“It’s the first time we are talking about the First Lady of Mexico,” del Castillo says. “[It’s] the first time we show the politics of Mexico. We’re showing Mexico just the way it is, which I think is interesting for Americans. To see how powerful Mexico is, how beautiful it is and how much money there is and how poor it is also and how both worlds connect. The in between is what I think is very interesting.”

Yet, del Castillo knows that Latinas have a long way to go when it comes to how they are portrayed in media. Del Castillo admits that everyone working on a show has the responsibility and obligation to create and foster fully established characters. It should not be about overly sexualizing character just because they are Latina and it fits the stereotype.

“Me, as an actress, I have the obligation to take care of my characters. Not to sexualize my characters,” del Castillo says. “Not only me, but some times there’s a fine line and you don’t even notice when they are sexualized. I think that as an actress, we need to find those kinds of roles where we are not sexualized and it’s not easy. We still want to work and many roles are still sexualized, especially for Latinas.”

Check out the full interview above and catch season 2 of “Ingobernable” only on Netflix.

Untitled. Digital Image. Rap Up. 24 September 2018.

Ignore the Halloween haters around you who are saying it’s too early to be prepping a costume. There’s no such thing as too early. The best Halloween costumes are thought of on Nov. 1 so some times you can spend an entire year getting the perfect costume. Thanks to our self-sufficient parents, we have no problem creating our won costumes.

Here are some of the best celebrity costumes we have seen over the years.

Lauren Jauregui and Ty Dolla $ign as Alice & Mad Hatter

It doesn’t matter who else dressed like Alice and the Mad Hatter from “Alice in Wonderland.” They crushed it.

Camila Cabello as a grandmother who sat on her cat.

It is funnier because she is surrounded by the typical sexy costumes you’ve come to expect from people. We cant wait to see what she chooses this year.

Girl made the outfit herself with help from her mom after she couldn’t find a salmon nigiri outfit. Maybe this year?

Adriana Lima as a Corpse Bride

The Brazilian supermodel went all out last year, dressed like a corpse bride with runway level makeup and dress on. This year, I’m Adriana Lima circa Halloween 2017.

Police Officer Demi Lovato

Demi always goes all out for Halloween. Last year, she dressed up like a muy sexy cop, but given the pose, we’re guessing she’s a little corrupt, too.

Demi Lovato as Selena

Fans freaked when she posted Selena Quintanilla channelled into beloved Demi. Tbh, everyone was shook by the outfit and it was all people could talk about all Halloween season.

Cardi B as “Bruella de Vil”

If you have a Dalmatian already, you’re halfway there. Cardi B introduced us to “Bruella de Vil” last year. As much as we love the Bardi, the outfit was too spot on given that she’s wearing real fur and we have no idea whose dog that is. Too close an impression for comfort, Cardi.

Manolo Gonzalez Vergara as a very cute Dalmatian

“Waking Up” star was a much more lovable Dalmatian, though he claims in his Instagram that he didn’t know it was Halloween. “These are just my pajamas.” Cute.

Selena Gomez as Jigsaw

Okay. Okay. It’s fake but isn’t it just incredible? Halloween doesn’t just have to be about being sexy. Some times it is fun to be scary and creepy because that’s what the holiday is really all about.

Jackie Cruz as a Carnival Girl

Jackie Cruz showed up in style at Heidi Klum’s famous Halloween party that only draws in the A-listers. Last year, she dressed as a Carnival Girl meets punk rock guapa.

“Riverdale” star, Camila Mendes, dressed up as…well, no one really knows. Fans speculated about what the costume was and even Mendes was in on the joke offering other options than those created. Some of the guesses included an angel, a moth, a bird and a fairy.

Prince Royce as Chucky

I don’t know about you, but my mami is all about scarecrows, vampires and ghosts. Once you start mentioning Chucky or any true horror, it’s all, “ay, mija, calláte por favor.”

The mamis of the world may actually believe Chucky is as real as Prince Royce was last Halloween.

Lais Ribeiro as a Dead Nun

OK, so typically, Halloween is irreverant af, unless you’re a Catholic Latino. I was shocked to find out my parents dressed up like a priest and nun last year. All became believable again when the neighborhood got word and heckled the costumes right off them.

You go, Lais Ribeiro.

Bella Thorne as an Angel Bunny

Bella Thorne was a total angel last Halloween. Make your mamis proud, friends. Although I think a pose like this would make most people in your family clutch their pearls.

Alessandra Ambrosio as Jessica Rabbit

Nobody can forget when Alessandra Ambrosio was as leggy and cartoonishly stunning as the actual Jessica Rabbit last year. I mean, the models have it easy thought, de acuerdes?

Francia Raisa as BAM BAM

OK, so this was not a 2017 Halloween or you would see a pretty big scar from her kidney donation surgery last year. Raisa literally saved Selena Gomez’ life from lupus last summer.

Victoria Justice as Beetlejuice

I’m over here waiting for a Beetlejuice revival for my 2019 costume. This is one of the best costumes Justice has ever attempted.

Naya Rivera as a Sexy Mummy

All my dark haired Latinas out there, even Naya Rivera’s hair color is a feat to achieve. Our hair just doesn’t bleach or take those Halloween color hairsprays. Brava, Naya.

Gina Rodriguez as a cute Dino

For when you believe Halloween should always be comfy. Excuse to wear pajamas in public, yess, Gina. Tbh, I wish I could just wear stuff like this year round.

Christina Milian as a Ninja

Honestly, pull out your favorite old costume and invest in $15 colored contact lenses and nobody will even recognize you. It’s an investment, ok.

However, Halloween 2017 goes to Shakira and family for obvious reasons.

I honestly had no earthly idea who they were dressed up as. Just google Topo Gigio and you will know.
