esmeraldaWhat does Esmeralda Pimentel have to say about replacing Altair Jarabo??

As we told you, Altair was hired then fired from the lead role in the new Televisa novela “La Bella y Las Bestias” – and Esmeralda is now in her place.

The actress talked to “El Universal” about taking Altair’s role and she said:

“Yo honestamente desconozco la decisión, lo único que puedo decir de mi compañera es que la respeto y admiro mucho ya que he tenido el privilegio de trabajar con ella y es sumamente profesional.”

Esmeralda told the newspaper that she auditioned for the novela and was told she did not get the part. Some time later, she was called and told she was in.
