16 years after the publication of the novel, ViX+ opted to develop an original story by Mario Vargas Llosa entitled bad girl antics in which he portrays the lives of two characters that intertwine over the course of 40 years.

It will generate a lot of debate,” said the 30-year-old actress.

“It gives me a bit of anguish to see that the problems that women faced in the 1960s still exist, for example, discrimination, the issue of the jobs they can have, the salaries they have doing the same jobs as men , today they continue to be part of a struggle every day and I say this as a woman, not as a feminist.
