Luis Ernesto (El Güero) Franco: from naughty boy to screen figure
During the most recent streaming Living is Incredible, broadcast from the @gnpseguros account on Instagram, actress and presenter Mar Saura chatted with the actor in a pleasant interview

Self-constancy and conviction are two fundamental elements to fulfill the desires and goals that we have set. In the case of Mexican actor Luis Ernesto Franco, this takes on special relevance, as we learned in the most recent interview conducted by the Spanish actress, model and businesswoman Mar Saura.

This was what “El güero” Franco shared with his audience through the Instagram account of @gnpseguros:

A crucial decision

Originally from Tepic, Nayarit (western Mexico), Luis Ernesto Franco had to consider from a very young age what his vocation and profession would be, which he had to play outside his hometown in order to achieve the dreams he had set. This is how he let Mar Saura see it when she asked him: “Do you remember the day you told your parents that you wanted to be an actor?”

“I became independent very young. He was very irreverent and very naughty. When I finished high school, my dad, may he rest in peace, asked me what I wanted to do and I told him I wanted to be an actor. Televisa did not answer me, but the CEFAC (Acting Training Center) did, so they invited me to do a casting. They put me to sing and I didn’t sing; I was put to act and I didn’t act; they put me to read a poem and I didn’t read poems. Then I said ‘no, I didn’t stay'”, confessed Luis Ernesto Franco with humor and at the same time grateful to have received the opportunity to train in that acting academy.

Before the mirror of the past

Before the exercise of memory and reflection, Mar Saura asked the actor of film, theater and television: “If you could look back 22 years, what would you say to the güerito who came to Mexico City?”, to which he replied:

“For many years of my life and my career I was thinking about the goal, And that’s why I missed out on wonderful things and relationships. I would tell that little boy to slow down a little bit and enjoy the present,” he said emphatically, showing that today he has a more mature perspective on life and his artistic career, which is composed of dozens of productions in Mexico and Latin America.

The role that transformed Luis Ernesto Franco

So, to make known a little more about his acting work, Mar Saura questioned him about something we all want to know about our favorite actors: “Which character has touched your heart in a special way?” he asked.

“Felix, from the movie I don’t know whether to cut my veins or leave them long. I don’t say it for the character itself, but for everything that involved representing that character, “he replied convinced of his interpretation of a soccer player who must face an unusual confusion among neighbors, all in the midst of a depression to see his career cut short and the little support from his partner.

As is already tradition in these broadcasts, which during the last two years has placed the most visible faces of the Ibero-American artistic field in front of his followers, Mar Saura asked his interviewee if he has also made the phrase of Living is incredible? of GNP Seguros, to which he replied:

“Life is beautiful, it is the greatest gift we can have,” he concluded.
