Such is the case of Veronica Castro, who from his beginnings as an actress in telenovelas and mexican movies wowed the audiences with his enigmatic eyes clear, but also being the protagonist of a series of controversies during his decades of public service career.
Such disputes seem to feed the fire that drives one of the more recent proposals of Netflix in Spanish, which is already in full production of its second season. This is from the series “House of Flowers”, a black comedy in which, surrounded by an all-star cast, Veronica Castro plays the role of a wealthy matriarch who tries to maintain the image of perfect family, then that the lover of her husband takes a radical decision to air the dirty laundry and bringing to light their darkest secrets.
The title of the series is derived from a business to customers of high lineage, a florist, precisely so called, of which the family Of the Blackberry is proprietary; but at the same time, it is discovered that the husband of Virginia (the character played by Verónica Castro), also was the owner behind the backs of his family of other business, but much more cloudy, that wore the same name. In addition, each chapter of the first season bears as title the name of a flower, as a symbolism of the topics that are discussed in its plot.
