Ana de la Reguera is not afraid to be embarrassed.
In fact, she made an entire television show putting her embarrassing moments on full display.
The pilot begins with Ana being born to an audience of gynecologist students. According to her, it’s a true story….mostly. The series is full of truths, half-truths and stretched truths from the Mexican-born actress’ life. She’s not shy with giving the gory details, in either the show or in the interview. It’s chock-full of TMI. The show is funny, provocative, poignant and above all always true to Ana — from the silly to serious moments.
De la Reguera has a storied career as both a telenovela and Hollywood star, known to American audiences for her roles in “Narcos,” “Goliath” and “Nacho Libre.” Her fictionalized self in “Ana” navigates her career in film and personal life both North and South of the border.
She talked to the Knockturnal about drawing from personal experiences, being vulnerable, producing a bilingual show, representing LGBT characters, the impact of social media, shooting and living in both the US and Mexico, her favorite places to eat in Mexico and much more.
The second season of “Ana” kicked off July 22. It is available for streaming on Amazon Prime.
