The Mexican actress Camila Sodi, who in the new series “False identity” gets into the skin of a brave and very suffering mother who is the victim of male abuse, said in an interview with Efe that motherhood is something of “much instinct” and “very animal”.
“I think that any mom can tell you, the first and the last are your children, there’s nothing you would not do for them, it’s a bit like animal, having children is that: it’s a lot of instinct, it’s very animal,” she said. the actress (Mexico City, 1986).
