Entrevias, Nona Sobo (Thailand, 2002) was practically unknown until last February 1 when she made her debut as the protagonist in the new Telecinco series, Entrevías, an action thriller by the creator of Patria Aitor Gabilondo in which she shares the leading role and a lot of scenes with veteran José Coronado. Viewers received the fiction with open arms at its premiere. It became the audience leader in its slot. In addition to its captivating story, the work of the young actress, who was making her debut as a performer, drew particular attention with this job.
Entrevias: The visit to the supermarket that changed the life of its protagonist Nona Sobo
In Entrevías, Nona Sobo plays Irene, the Vietnamese granddaughter of Coronado’s character, Tirso, the owner of a neighborhood hardware store and former military man who finds himself in the care of a young teenager whom her parents adopted when she was a child and who are now unable to control in this complicated age. Irene seems to have a magnet for problems, and she is used to being surrounded by bad company and dynamic gang members that are causing many issues in the neighborhood. In addition, she constantly fantasizes about eloping with her Colombian boyfriend, something that her grandfather will be determined to avoid at all costs.
The relationship between grandfather and granddaughter is complicated, and one of the star elements of the series, which, while delving into family dynamics and other relationships between its protagonists, addresses the beginning of the collaboration between Tirso and a corrupt policeman played by Luis Zahera to confront the urban gangs.
“It’s a girl’s delight. I think it’s going to be a hit because she does it phenomenally,” Coronado assured her in statements to El Programa de Ana Rosa on the occasion of the premiere of the series. Similarly, the newcomer explained that it had been an absolute honor to work with the veteran interpreter: “she has helped me a lot professionally and not professionally,” she assured in Telecinco’s statements. And it is that when Nona Sobo stepped on the set of Entrevías for the first time, she had never worked as an actress, and her only experience had been as a model.
The Visit to the Supermarket That Changed Nona Sobo’s Life
Nona Sobo is her artistic name of Mariona Soley Bosch, who was born in Thailand, but who lives from her first years of life in Barcelona. After working on different advertising campaigns since she was only eight years old, participating in music videos, and growing as a model, the 19-year-old obtained this new professional opportunity from the hands of Aitor Gabilondo and David Bermejo. And, with her character as Irene in Entrevías, she has shown her potential in the interpretive environment.
Her experience as a model and actress in video clips has just translated into her jump to acting in the new Telecinco series. Still, her arrival in the world of advertising came about by chance. So casual that it happened while she was shopping with her mother in a supermarket. And this is how Sobo herself explained it in her recent visit to La Resistencia. However, what gave the most to talk about her meeting with Broncano was the moment of shame that her mother spent, present at the Arlequín Theater where the Movistar program is recorded when the young woman openly brought up the subject of her sexual relations.
This is the first thing I do,” Nona explained to Broncano when he commented that there was no information about her on Wikipedia. “When I was 8 years old, I was with my mother shopping in a supermarket and an agent came who was looking for new faces to propose us an ad for Barbie.
“Is the anecdote that your daughter has told faithful?” Asked the comedian and presenter to the young woman’s mother. She agreed to remember the moment and made a small confession: “Yes, we were going in. And they saw her. And nothing, she just made an announcement. So I thought she would study…”. “Jo, mom,” Sobo replied to Broncano’s jokes about having uncovered a family drama while his mother claimed to be very happy with her daughter’s work.
After that first opportunity, the young woman would begin to move in the world “of advertising and fashion at 14 and 15 years of age, in a more official way,” she explained. Until the opportunity of Entrevías came: “They were looking for someone with a profile like mine, and here I am,” summed up Sobo, who also confessed to the presenter that the last casting phase was done at Coronado’s house.
