Sonia Braga has been cursed…
The 64-year-old Brazilian actress, best known for her performances in Kiss of the Spider Woman and Moon Over Parador, has landed a regular role in The Curse Of The Fuentes Women, NBC’s drama pilot from Warner Bros. Television.
When a magical and mysterious young man (portrayed by Adan Canto) inexplicably emerges from the ocean, he breathes new passion into the lives of the Fuentes women – the beautiful but lonely Lola (Christina Vidal), her ailing mother Esperanza (Rachel Ticotin) and her troubled daughter Soledad (Katie Sarife). Lola has given up on love and dedicated herself to caring for her daughter Soledad, her mother Esperanza and their floundering family restaurant – until a mysterious stranger enters her life, opening up a world of possibilities.
Braga will play Orquidia, the estranged sister of Esperanza (Ticotin). Orquidia has been harboring an enormous grudge against her sister for decades.
Braga, nominated for three Golden Globes and an Emmy, has appeared on television in Sex and the City, Alias and The Cosby Show.
