Over the last 20 years, I have had the privilege of occasionally getting together with some of the Mi Vida Loca cast members. Working on this set was an extraordinary experience because the entire cast was amazing. Some of the actors in the film went on to become out and out movie stars (Salma Hayek, Danny Trejo, Jacob Vargas, Jesse Borrego) and others moved on to pursue different dreams but we all had a bond.
This is none other than La Whisper. These photos were taken by a talented loca named Madeline Alviso. Whisper is a proud mom, still living in Los Angeles, and working to make a good life for herself and her family.
Till this day, women will always ask me about this sexy creature. As you know, Julian Reyes appeared in Mi Vida Loca as Big Sleepy and was also in a number of other projects in the 90’s. A few months ago, I was pleased to find the cop on the motorcycle pulling up in front of my car was actually none other than Papi Chulo, Julian Reyes! All you “Big Sleepy” fans will be happy to know that not only is he still FINE, he is also still a sweetheart!
And just so you know, Gabrielito is not alone in his pursuit of the musical arts. Here we have Giggles, who after a few more years of acting decided to devote her life to her family and her music. Marlo Marron can also be found on FACEBOOK.
If you have lived under a rock, you may not know that Ernesto is a flipping legend! I still watch his monolog with Whisper in complete awe. Jacob Vargas is not only commercially successful, he is an artisan.
We also have the pleasure of doing many meet and greets with one of the original locas from Echo Park. Vero Arellano aka Stranger manages the Echo Park Mi Vida Loca page on Facebook but she is also one of the 30 inspiring women featured on a Living Firme Podcast. Check her episode out HERE.
I’m glad you came by to catch up with the cast of Mi Vida Loca! Something special is on the agenda for 2018 so stay tuned! And FINALLY for those of you that have asked, the film can be found on AMAZON. Or you can buy a signed copy from me HERE.
