A telenovela that heralded a new era in Mexican television, thanks to its star-studded cast and an emotional plot that captivated millions of viewers.
Andrés Garcia was without a doubt one of the most remarkable actors on Mexican television, with an excellent career and an amazing screen presence. Throughout his career, he was able to appear in over twenty soap operas, but without a doubt, “El privilegio de amar” has left an everlasting impact on the hearts of fans.
The soap opera debuted on television in 1998, and it has stayed with everyone who has seen it. The story, directed by Delia Fiallo and produced by Carla Estrada and Arturo Lorca, starred Adela Noriega, René Strickler, Helena Rojo, and, of course, Andrés Garcia.
Garca played Andrés Duval on this occasion, a charismatic, witty, and sometimes carefree man who faces the arduous task of reclaiming the love and confidence of his wife, Luciana, after cheating on her with Lorenza.
Garca’s portrayal of Andrés Duval not only distinguished him as an actor, but also launched him to international prominence, gaining the hearts of generations of fans. The connection between Garca and Helena Rojo’s characters was probably one of the key reasons for the telenovela’s popularity.
But, the story would not be the same without the presence of Adela Noriega and René Strickler, who played the children of Andrés and Luciana, Lizbeth and Victor Manuel. The interaction between the four characters is undeniably one of the plot’s strongest features, and it managed to captivate an audience of all ages.
The telenovela was on the air for over a year and a half, and during that period it rose to the top of the ratings. Yet, its popularity did not end there, as it was repeated multiple times due to the public’s overwhelming approval.
Andrés Garcia won two key accolades for his performance in “El privilegio de amar”: the TV y Novelas award for Best Leading Actor and the Califa de Oro award for Best Performance. These honours demonstrate Garca’s exceptional talent and his contribution to the telenovela’s success.
Furthermore, the main theme of the telenovela of the same name, as interpreted by Mijares and Lucero, is a piece of music that has stayed with all those who have followed the plot.
