Kate del Castillo is a Mexican actress not only recognized for her role in films and series such as “La Reina del Sur”, but also for his meeting with Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, which occurred in 2015 and which put her in the eye of the hurricane, even making traveling to Mexico difficult for her. The event that marked her life was recently recalled in an interview with the journalist María Antonieta Collins.
Although that episode was left eight years ago, it is something that will always accompany her, because now that she is promoting her new series “Volver a caer”, the questions about what may have been her most epic encounter resurfaced, but The actress assures that she does not regret anything, because it is part of her past and decisions that she made.
He acknowledged that things “went to a side that he did not want” and that what weighed on him was that this interview will affect his family. She added that they were purification times in every way and very scary because she did not know if she was going to survive it.
It was in October 2015 when Kate del Castillo met with the famous drug trafficker, accompanied by the American actor Sean Penn (whom she referred to as a traitor) in Cosalá, Sinaloa. They had previously held talks via text messages through different messaging applications.
they had passed only three months after “El Chapo” escaped from the maximum security prison of the Altiplanoin Almoloya de Juárez, State of Mexico, when he met with the actress, which put her in the crosshairs of the Mexican authorities.
The journalist Anabel Hernández recounted in her book “Emma and the other drug lords” that when the boss met the actress he told her: “I supply more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anyone else in the world. I have a fleet of submarines, planes, trucks and boats.”
It all started in 2012 when Del Castillo published a tweet in which he said he had more confidence in “El Chapo” than in the government. From there Guzmán Loera’s lawyers contacted the actress to give him the rights to the story of one of the most famous drug traffickers in the world.

The actress rented a private plane that took them to Guadalajara and from there people from the Sinaloa Cartel picked them up.to take them to the hideout of the offender, today imprisoned in the United States.
Although Guzmán Loera told his story to be produced by Kate in a biopic, it was not carried out, as Sean Penn wrote an article for a magazine, which the actress considers treason.
