Although fame exploded without expecting it, he did not give up enjoying acting. And now she does it with Cristo y Rey, the new Atresplayer Premium series.

Regarding the figure of Ángel Cristo, who more or less has a notion: the successful tamer, the turbulent relationship with Bárbara Rey, the fall into drugs, the mistreatment, the volcanic character… The same could be thought of the career Jaime Lorente’s professional career (Murcia, 1991) from the immediate success with the psychopath Denver in La Casa de Papel and the bad guy in Elite to the jump to Ángel Cristo in Cristo y Rey, the Daniel Écija series that premieres today on Atresplayer Premium and in a few months it will reach Antena 3. But here the nuances are very important.

Because what surrounds success is a nebula that the Murcian has been dissipating over the years and with professional help. “No way I’ve been happy. I’ve only gotten along well outside the gates. I have beaten myself a lot; I have suffered from depression and anxiety; I have been very lost, and I have felt very bad for having a privileged place that I did not enjoy when other actors are having drinks”.

Thus, without nuances, he unravels a path that we all intuit is ideal except for those who lived it. “I have invested a lot in psychologists and now I would not change everything that has happened to me for anything. I have learned that the people who lose their grip with success are because they were assholes before, when no one knew them and now we all know it”.

Looking at these years of career, are you happy now?
Yes, because I haven’t done anything I didn’t want to. I have committed myself and have helped my family a lot with my privilege. You catch me at a time where I am very proud.
For this reason, he has gotten involved in a project that looks like a national event and with aspirations for resounding success. Nothing works in Spain like the fall from grace of a real public figure. And even more so if Bárbara Rey, Chelo García Cortés, the emeritus King and an amalgamation of gossip, romances, sexual dalliances and scandals to remember or discover.
Although the filming was not without its problems. At least, for its protagonist. “There were things that I couldn’t even understand. Either he did them without thinking or it was impossible. I had an anxiety attack in a scene in which his daughter takes one of his drugs. I just became a father and you wonder what could happen in the real life. I started crying like a little child”.

How much does paternity affect the work of an actor?
Being young it is impossible to be a good actor. I’m not saying you don’t do good jobs, but at 30 I can’t be because I still don’t understand many things. Being a father gives me more freedom and I suffer less because I prioritize the affective relationship with my daughter. Without being a father, I would not count Ángel Cristo like this.

And the reconciliation? Because we always ask women this.
My girl and I have reconciled very well. We have worked as we could, but we agree. If she was pregnant for nine months, it’s my turn to smear now too.

After all your problems, why have you returned to a series that is on the way to being a hit?
Because you have to understand that success is a consequence of your work. If I had not understood this after La Casa de Papel, I would have left this profession. Success is something that they spit in your face for which you are not prepared and for which I have had to work. I am enjoying this because now I feel brave and my circle takes it well with me.
Although it already sounds like a cliché, Jaime Lorente was one of those who thought that continuing made no sense. Because he felt “many times” alone without being so, he had a “fatal” follow-up from the tabloids and fans, and he did not enjoy filming for “fear of making mistakes”. There he held “the illusion” of the 16-year-old boy who set up stages in Murcia for a pittance and trained to be an actor until he succeeded. “My relationship with my work has never been success or being famous. It goes deeper. If charging 20 euros setting up stages, which is crap, I was excited and hungry, something was happening when I was not happy in a successful series. Or I blame my job and quit or take responsibility for my life”.
He chose the latter and was learning to deal with the blurry line between success and failure from the top. “You are very afraid that if the value that the rest gives you disappears, you will stop being a winner. My success now is in my wife, my daughter, my family, my money… That thing about money not giving Happiness that they tell you when you don’t have a daughter and can have certain privileges. You have to give value to real things because you are nobody if you believe that success is fame”.

Does one come to feel that it is only a product?
It is that you are and it is not bad. We all are, another thing is that you are cheap and manipulated.

And how many times have you felt alone?
Many times, because you start to displace the people around you when things go wrong. I remember that my girl told me one day if she understood that she would continue with me even if she was a baker.

Why is she always associated with violent characters? Talking to you you don’t give that impression at all.
Being Denver in La Casa de Papel marked me, but I am not violent at all. I’m blocked by violence but I guess I’m good at getting pissed off.

Well, in the world and in the series there are good doses of violence.
This series serves to denounce that there is still a lot of that violence left. And you understand that as a man you have a responsibility to report comments from friends. I have left WhatsApp groups where it was funny to say barbaric things against women.

Have we men begun to adopt those behaviors that you had?
It is better to cross those people out of your life to avoid unpleasant moments. You have to do a brutal collective exercise and it is time to put limits on humor with the suffering of many people to have a more humane world. Enough of certain queer and black jokes, even if they are not hurtful. You have to set limits to live in a state of calm and respect.

Jaime Lorente and Belén Cuesta play the tamer and the ‘star’ in the Atresplayer Premium series that reviews their turbulent marriage in a Spain that was beginning to taste freedom.

Anyone who lived in Spain between the eighties and the beginning of the 21st century and turned on the television from time to time or bought a magazine, will have an idea formed about the protagonists of this story. They were at the top, fell in love quickly, and soon after, all hell broke loose. The story of Ángel Cristo and Bárbara Rey goes from fairy tale to horror story in the barely eight years that their marriage lasted. Cristo y Rey, the series that Atresplayer Premium premieres this Sunday, takes as material the versions of its protagonists and what was reported in the media at that time to, in eight episodes, trace a path that goes from the dazzling lights of the circus and the spotlights of uncovering cinema and TV, to the darkness of drugs, addiction and violence.

The story begins with an Angel Christ at the top, collecting the title of best tamer in the world in Russia in 1969. Winner, married and happy. In the next scene, ten years later, he threatens with a gun whoever takes his tigers from the Russian Circus. Newly widowed from his first wife, his life is out of date and he is drowning in debt. Bárbara Rey is the muse of uncovering, an icon of openness, freedom and the Transition. She is at the top and rubs shoulders with the highest spheres —from the first episode, the series makes her relationship with Juan Carlos I explicit. To talk about the series that recounts the relationship between tamer and vedette, this newspaper brought together its creator, Daniel Écija, and the actors who play the two protagonists, Jaime Lorente and Belen Cuesta.

“It is the story of an era”, says Écija. “The series explains the journey of a country from a dictatorship to embrace freedom, but it is a country that drags characters who have been educated without knowing how to manage that freedom, with many defects. They are exponents of an education that many people suffered during the dictatorship and who had to deal with the explosion that was the Transition and freedom, with many deficiencies to deal with something as difficult as coexistence and love. For its creator, this story shows “endemic conflicts of individuals and society today”. “They were very modern, she especially. Ángel wanted to, but like so many individuals, they did not give him good cards”. Cristo, who died in 2010, dragged years of drug addiction problems, which he began using during his marriage. In 1989, Rey denounced him for mistreatment.

The writers and producers were soon clear that Jaime Lorente should be the one to play the tamer. “I didn’t know where I was going to go”, admits the actor. “I found out about his life and it seemed to me that the character was less interesting than what the series paints him to be. The first part, more of lights, more circus, was a lot of fun to do, but then we get into dark places. Normally, one feels identified with his characters in some things, but there came a time when I didn’t feel identified at all in anything”, admits Lorente.

Finding Bárbara Rey was more complicated. “We were searching and searching and nothing. One day Belén [Cuesta] appeared in these offices, put on a wig and did a bestial sequence, our jaws dropped”, recalls Écija of a decision that, a priori, did not seem the most natural due to the scant resemblance between the two. “When they asked me to do the casting, I didn’t know if I wanted to do it, because of the cliché and the image one has of her. But I wanted to get rid of it. In addition, it is a way of doing justice and for people to understand what this woman was and what she went through. She is a character that is very foreign to me, nothing to do with me, and at the same time, I feel a great responsibility for being able to tell her in the best possible way”, explains Belén Cuesta.

Fact and fiction
A sign at the beginning of the series warns that the plot is inspired by real events and characters, but that it has also been heavily fictionalized “for dramatic purposes”. “We have worked a lot with Bárbara and with Ángel’s entourage. We were able to speak with Payasito before he died [Francisco Javier García-Ontiveros, known as Payasito, was a friend of Ángel Cristo and died in October 2021]. I have had twenty-odd hours of conversation with Bárbara”, details Écija, who has also had the help of the journalist Chelo García Cortés, played in the series by Adriana Torrebejano. When this interview took place, Bárbara Rey had not yet seen the series because she wanted to wait to see it in its entirety. “He came to the shoot on the wedding day. It was very exciting for her. She is very concerned with what will excite her, the journey that the series will be for her”, continues the scriptwriter.

Once they gathered the necessary material, the series has not hesitated to imagine with reality as a starting point. “Fiction is fiction and this is an interpretation of the time. I think that the essence and the pillars are honest, but I do want to work on the packaging to make it an exciting and entertaining journey for the viewer”, defends Écija about her approach to this story. “Of course, we did not avoid one of the conflicts that this relationship had, they are all there, from a responsible point of view, but that does not mean that we avoid them. When you talk about the king and the relationship with Barbara and you talk about responsibility, you may think that we have censored ourselves, but not at all”. Actor Cristóbal Suárez plays King Juan Carlos. “Good night, Majesty”, says Bárbara Rey in the first episode of the series. “How many times have I told you not to call me that?” Juan Carlos answers when she goes to one of her clandestine meetings. “All of that is in the series as we have investigated and as we believe it was. If not, we would not have started to make this series”, defends Écija.

For the actors, interpreting real characters that, moreover, are so etched in the recent memory of the country is a challenge that Belén Cuesta faces with concern. “I want her to feel moderately satisfied with the reflection that I give of her”. To prepare the character, Cuesta and Rey chatted one afternoon over coffee. “More than knowing what was real and what was not, I wanted to know what she was like in private, how María is more than Bárbara [Bárbara Rey’s real name is María García García], how she related to her father, how she spoke to his children, what he was like in intimacy with Ángel…”. “It is clear that I am not Bárbara Rey nor do I have her voice”, continues the actress. “I could have gotten closer to her character trying to imitate her, but I think I would have gone more into a parody. I wanted to tell the story, how he suffered, how he felt. I am the first who, when he sees a biopic, starts looking if they are similar or if they are well characterized. I assume that this is going to happen and that people will say that I don’t have such long legs. Obviously, I’m not Barbara Rey. But I want people to understand her story more than to see if I look alike or not”.

Pop characters
Along with titles like Veneno, Bosé, Nacho or Camilo Superstar, Cristo y Rey could be included in a national television trend that likes to look back at characters that have marked recent popular culture in Spain. “I think it is a way to look at ourselves”, says Belén Cuesta. “It also makes you see that the memories we have are often totally prostituted. You have something in your imagination and when you revisit it you realize that it was not like that”, adds Jaime Lorente.

Écija explains this trend in a more pragmatic way: “It saves a lot of marketing and communication. At the time when hundreds of series are released a year, it is a shorter and cheaper way to generate interest in the viewer. But you also have to respond to the expectations generated by memory, which is quite unreliable”.

If in La Casa de Papel he already made it clear what his ideal car was, Jaime Lorente already has the honor of driving it. This is his Maserati Levante GT Blue Denim.

La Casa de Papel has become a global phenomenon and one of the most popular Spanish series in history thanks to its jump to Netflix (here you have our selection with the best movies and series from the motor world within the famous platform). So much so that his phrases have come to transcend the series itself, such as the one in which Denver compared his partner Tokyo to a Maserati.

The other side of that automobile comparison was already answered very elegantly by Seat, but what is clear is that for Denver the Maseratis were his ideal car, that car he dreamed of going out with right after giving the big hit. “Driving a clear sky blue Maserati” confessed the famous character of the band already in the first season when they asked him what he would do as soon as he finished the robbery.

We don’t know if Denver ended up fulfilling that dream after the events seen in the series, but what we do know is that the actor who played it, Jaime Lorente, has fulfilled it. And it is that Maserati has used its famous Fuoriserie customization program to create a Maserati Levante GT with a special color called ‘Blue Denim’, very similar to that “clear sky blue” color with which Denver himself imagined driving his new car. A car that now the actor can enjoy.

That striking blue color complements very well with the cuoio color present in its interior, with details in contrasting cobalt blue associated with the Mild Hybrid mechanics of this model, with 330 CV of power but with 18% more efficiency than the V6 gasoline mechanics with almost the same power.
