Ethereally beautiful Arizmendi plays the role of Maria, an immigrant mother of a son she hasn’t seen in eight years having uprooted herself to work in another country to give him a better life. Maria is a good friend to the group of women workers and befriends America upon her arrival. She is a mother figure, a tender and wise survivor.
From the legendary Mann’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood where she was being interviewed Yareli said about her role: “It was a pleasure to embody the kind of woman we see every day, and yet know nothing about. The opportunity to join the AMERICA ensemble came at a very difficult time for me. It was a gift, a breath of fresh air and Caribbean warmth.”
Award winning Yareli Arizmendi is best known for her tour de force performances in motion pictures such as “Like Water For Chocolate” and “A Day Without a Mexican” which she co-wrote with Director Sergio Arau.
