“Beyond my actions through my social networks, it is the first thing I do in quarantine. And it seems to me that it comes at the right time because We’ve been out of work for a long time and you don’t know what to do anymore. I needed to have my head set on the job, in what I like and enjoy ”, says Barbie in an exclusive interview with Teleshow.
The actress lives with her boyfriend, Lucas Rodriguez –Son of Fabián Rodríguez, who was the husband of Nazarena Vélez– three and a half years ago. However, in March, when President Alberto Fernández issued preventive and mandatory social isolation, they decided to settle in the house of the producer in Tigre. “As he was not going to be able to leave, I cannot be long without seeing my mother and Thiago -who is the brother of both-, that’s why we decided to come here.”
Since then, he has spent his days with Nazarena Vélez, his younger brother Thiago, his mother’s boyfriend, Santiago Caamaño, and his partner, Lucas. “Like everyone else, we never knew it was going to be that long. At first we came with a bag to stay 15 days. As it spread, we saw that we were all very good together. The house is much bigger, there is an environment for everyone and it was more comfortable than being in our apartment ”, she highlights about the home she shares with her boyfriend. “He gets along amazing with all the members of the family.”
Although Barbie and Lucas have been living in Nazarena’s house for seven months, Barbie clarifies that she helps at home both with cleaning tasks, as with Thiago’s school activities, and also with the financial situation. “I am already grown up and I can contribute. We all help with what we can “, indicates who should also continue to maintain their department, where they are currently making spare parts.

It was difficult, but I feel that within everything I could to surf quite well ”, he tells about his experience, and clarifies:“ Anyway, he was not left behind. This follows”.

Herman@s It was originally written and intended to be made in a theater on Corrientes Street last year. But it was postponed because the actors failed to match their work schedules. “And seeing that this year, at least in the near future, theaters are not going to open, we decided to do it by streaming,” says the actress, who recorded her version two months ago at the Premiere Theater.
Unlike other shows that carry out the live broadcast, this project was decided to record it with the aim that there would be no problem with the platform. “The work will be seen from a cell phone, computer or any other device, that is why it was recorded with three cameras, to be able to show the different shots that are not seen in the theater ”, says who opens next Friday. On Saturday, meanwhile, the version of Noya and Caamaño is launched.
“The idea is to be able to provide entertainment. In addition, the price is accessible, since with one ticket the whole family can see it “, he continues about the tickets, which have the value of $ 300 for a single work and $ 500 for both.
The first trials had been through the Zoom application. “It was very strange also because there are delay, or one was cut off the signal “. Until they could meet at the theater, salute each other, and start work. On the day of the recording, all the conditions indicated in the sanitary protocol that they approved for it to be carried out were met. “There were many administrative procedures, too there was an ambulance at the door, just in case. Furthermore, only the actors who were on stage could be without masks, ”says who also had no contact with his cast partner. “We do not approach or touch.”
“It is a challenge for us to learn to work like this because, without a doubt, streaming is here to stay. We are learning and we do not know what will happen, “he concludes. Barbie Vélez.
