Itatí Cantoral's antagonistic character Soraya Montenegro was made an Internet meme. Shots of her crying are subtitled "Cries in Spanish", or "Dies in Spanish" with the character passed out, etc. See more »
In the scene where Maria faints for the first time, her legs automatically close in a rigid straight position instead of going lax and spreading to the sides as would normally happen when a person faints. See more »
In 1995, Thalía plays a leading role in "María la del Barrio", the third soap opera of the "María" trilogy. Soap stars Fernando Colunga and Itati Contoral, amongst others, were part of the superb cast. In the last María "telenovela", Thalia portrays María la del Barrio, a scavenger who is adopted by a rich businessman, and falls in love with Luis Fernando (Colunga), an arrogant, rich man. María married Luis Fernando, had a baby with him, but gave the baby away during a temporary bout of insanity. In this tragic-comedy she portrayed a happy, genuine and full of life young girl, who later turned into a suffering woman grieving for her lost child. It does have a happy ending, though!!! The soap opera, without a doubt, touched young and adult audiences around the world due to its innocent, entertaining and enchanting storyline. After the "María" trilogy of soap operas circled the globe, a census showed that they have been viewed by more than a billion people around the World!
