Mónica Huarte writes her own story as a screenwriter – El Sol de México

Mónica Huarte healed through writing. Years ago, the actress suffered one of the most important losses of her life: the death of her father.

Although he thought he had overcome that moment, thanks to the help of experts, the truth is that he still had a lot to tell.

That interest in healing internally led her to write her first film script, where she addresses the story of a character who loses his father and longs to get him back.

“I wrote it during the pandemic, I haven’t been able to put it up, but I hope next year I can do it and it is a story that has quite a few overtones of magical realism, it is a place that gives you back the things you have lost in life, but not the material things,” said Huarte in an interview with The Sun of Mexico.

The tentative title of the project is Lost And Found (Lost and found). Initially she had planned to produce his film in the United States, however, that may change due to the love she has for her country and with which she even considers that he can connect even more.

“I want to start making my own scripts, like this one, which I already wrote, I want to tell the stories that come from my heart, with characters that challenge me and I don’t know where to do it, that’s what I want.

“I want a project that makes my heart beat fast and makes me dizzy because that is going to mean that they are challenges and I am going to accept it because that will make me feel like I am continuing to grow and continue to explore things that I have never explored before,” said the comedian, who is also a comedian. .

Huarte considers herself a working woman, who has been climbing little by little within the industry. Her goal at all times is to demonstrate her versatility as an artist, which is why she works in different stories, from comedy to movies.

“I feel that I am a long-distance actress, there are actors who are sprinters, making a metaphor of runners, that is to say that there are actors who in the first project go to heaven and I feel that I am one of those who have been little by little earning a good reputation with a constant step, but always firm and without slacking at any time.

“Right now I am reaching the most beautiful part of the career because everything I sowed is being harvested and an example is this year when I started releasing a film with Rob (Schneider), they gave me an award in the Senate, another at the festival of laughter and then close with Lady influencer has been to raise the harvest of all these years of planting,” he expressed.

To avoid typecasting, the actress, who plays Dew in the series 40 and 20and has also had participations in the comedy series The P. Luche Familyrejects projects that might resemble each other.

“When I feel comfortable I say ‘no’ to a project to get out of my comfort zone and just get to a place where I don’t even know how to do it because that’s where you grow, if you repeat the same thing, you get comfortable, but you don’t. There is growth and when something is new, it motivates you. It takes a lot of work, yes, it is dizzying, but only then can you redirect your career to where you want it to go,” she said.
