Andrea Londo is the Narcos star everybody is talking about. The sensational Mexican star and someone that Hollywood intends to see more of in the future.
Andrea Londo Biography And Family
Her birth date and the obvious fact that she is Mexican appear to be the only personal details about the star. She was born on November 7, 1992, in Mexico.
She once uploaded a picture of her brother and nephew on Instagram, however, other family details and personal information are not yet known. It is obvious that just like most recent upcoming Hollywood stars, Andrea is keeping her private life and affairs as aloof as possible from her professional space.
Andrea Londo Wiki
Though Andrea’s fame came from her role in Narcos, the beautiful actress has been acting since 2015. She has featured in works like Catfish: The TV Show, Faking It, and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, however, her fame skyrocketed to an all-time high with her role as Maria Salazar in the 3rd season of the drug-themed Narcos series on Netflix.
Perhaps it is safe to say that no other would have taken the audience experience of the series to the level it did. And this was only possible, courtesy of her role interpretation which garnered sensitive and diverse reactions.
Her role has been praised for its realism and criticized as well for its extreme realism since Andrea’s character in the series served as a metaphor for the place of women over time.
Her role as Maria Salazar in Narcos is that of the desperate damsel in distress who is not necessarily waiting for a prince charming but uses what she has to get through life-threatening hurdles.
As obtained from the plot of the story, Maria Salazar is the role of wife of a Colombian drug-lord, Claudio Salazar, and the girlfriend of Miguel Rodriguez-Orejuela, another powerful drug lord.
The Maria Salazar character is presented as the subtle but determined woman who manipulates her sexuality to a despairingly needed advantage.
Maria and her son find themselves in the middle of a full-blown war going on in the Colombian drug cartels. So to save her life and her son’s, Maria pays the price with her body.
In a 7 minute clip in a season 3 episode, Andrea went nude while acting in an intimate scene. This singular act caused an outburst of reactions leading to a myriad of searches of the clip on the internet as well as who the daring actress was.
Realism fans believe this was a step in the right direction as far as professionalism was concerned. However, some find it too extreme, stressing that sticking to make-belief tricks and techniques was a morally appropriate and better option.
Still, on the matter, some reviews argued that the Maria Salazar character wrongly depicted the place and worth of women in society and that the character seemed to have reduced women to helpless species and sexual toys.
In defense of the many critical reviews on her role, Andrea Londo took to Instagram to share her two cents on the alleged supposition that Narcos was replete of “crying women”.
Summing up her points, Andrea is of the view that being true to one’s emotions is nothing to be ashamed of. She also didn’t fail to point out that Maria Salazar’s experiences were the realities of many women given the circumstances and setting of the story. Before now, women lacked the bold recognition as we have them today.
Narcos is the story of actual life events and experiences of drug lords in the 1930s. Perhaps why the star felt the compulsion to bare it all as a necessary professional requirement is to bring the picture nearest to life.
So are we seeing Andrea in the 4th season of Narcos? Not likely. Instead, the actress is set to feature in the Sons of Anarchy spin-off series.
