All about Emilio Osorio and how he managed to get the role of Alejandro Fernández

“I love everything, I don’t have a defined goal but I want to do theater, TV, movies, music.” This is how Emilio Osorio expressed himself in 2017 when he joined the cast of “My husband has a family”, which was actually his fourth soap opera but in light of his biography, it was the one that became the starting point of his race.

  • The takeoff. In that soap opera, Emilio played Aristóteles Córcega Castañeda, a young man whose first problem is that he suffers from an attention deficit but who later assumes his sexual preference as gay, which made him a standard for many adolescents and young people who watched the soap opera.

Osorio together with Joaquín Bondoni played the Artistemos in that telenovela (Bondoni’s character was called Cuauhtémoc López), which allowed Emilio to speak freely about his sexuality. The also son of Niurka Marcos faced with unusual maturity the rumors that, like his character, he was gay.

“I started studying dance when I was 8 years old and I was always surrounded by my mother’s choreographers who were gay. So I’ve always known what my personality is like,” he said on the Yolanda Andrade and Montserrat Olivier television program.

Indeed, Emilio’s career had been going on for a while before it exploded with the popularity of the Aristemos.

  • The star child. Despite being the son of producer Juan Osorio, Emilio has said that every time he enters a telenovela it is through a casting. Even in his father’s productions, he goes through the same process as the rest of his colleagues.

“My dad’s secretary calls me and tells me that I have an appointment with Mr. Osorio tomorrow at such a time. And that’s fine, it seems right to me because tomorrow I have to go to another production, I’ll know how to handle it,” he said in an interview with Yordi Rosado.

Emilio Osorio Marcos began his career in 2013, that is, when he was 11 years old. He played a small character in “Because love rules” and the following year he already had a secondary role in “My heart is yours”. His charisma and his tendency to always be smiling and optimistic connected with the viewing public who began to locate him.

He was barely in high school (“it is very difficult to combine both things, acting and studying,” he said) when he got to “Sueño de amor” and some episodes of “Como dice el dicho”. With four years of experience, he then undertook his acid test with “My husband has a family”, with which he promoted not only his career as an actor, but also as a singer.

  • Bitter drink. Music is the least brilliant aspect of her career. Not for lack of success, since his album “Juegos de amor” became a digital download phenomenon, but because there came a time, just as the pandemic began, when he decided to close that cycle.

His goal then was to focus on acting, since he was convinced that his artistic vocation called him towards that discipline.

“In this year I totally left music, I’m totally focusing on acting and I think people are going to like it a lot,” he said.

  • It’s still Emily. Time showed that Emilia was right to follow her hunches: a year later she got the opportunity to play Alejandro Fernández in the TelevisaUnivisión bioseries The Last King. The son of the people.

As in all previous projects, Emilio had to do casting despite the fact that his father is the producer of the series. And it was not easy to embody the Potrillo and become a charro.

“Everything has been a challenge, from getting ready to putting on the suit,” he says of the long process that took about a year.

“I spent 12 months in charreria classes, doing tricks and working with different horses,” he says with the enthusiasm of someone who has learned something new.

“I spent seven months in traditional singing and mariachi practice classes and trying out various charro suits,” he says.

All this gave results in the first season of the Vicente Fernández bioseries, which begins its second season this Monday and in which Emilio faces a new challenge: his first nude on the small screen.

“I had never done it before, but the people I had to share the scene with were very respectful and helped me do it correctly.”
