Gael García Bernal,
I watched the Tv serie (Soap opera) "Teresa" when she was in 20's (I was 12), we all in Mexico were able to see her talent for acting. In Teresa, she personified a very ambicious and almost upstart girl, who lived in a very poor neighborhood. This was her first main character in TV, after that she worked in "Un nuevo amanecer". In Teresa she worked with the then 10 years old-Gael GArcía Bernal, the actor in "El crimen del Padre Amaro" (2002). In this Opera, we were able to see the harsh reality of the poor working class in México and the marked differences among the social classes. This "Telenovela" (Opera) is one of the most remembered by the Mexican people, and above all for the great performance of Salma, who was showing us the artist that she would be, the artist who has been making us proud.
