Following the huge success of the 1996 movie From Dusk Till Dawn, actress Salma Hayek has gone on to have a very successful career in Hollywood, appearing in a number of impressive television shows and movies along the way. Now, up and coming actress Eiza Gonzalez is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Salma, starting with From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.
In From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Eiza Gonzalez takes on the role of Santanico Pandemonium, the role made famous by Salma Hayek, and Eiza says she has taken measures to give as good as Salma did. Eiza says that she gained weight for the role so that her curves would be as close to those of Salma Hayek as possible.
Gonzalez was chatting to TVNovelas.com, when she explained, "In the movie, you see Salma Hayek's body, and it's intimidating. They wanted me to look much more Latina and much more womanly. I gained 13 pounds. I wanted to look real. And I didn't hesitate to eat. Now, I feel much more womanly. My butt and boobs grew."
As well as starring Eiza Gonzalez, the solid From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series cast also includes the likes of D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Brandon Soo Hoo, Jesse Garcia, Robert Patrick and Madison Davenport. From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series is being brought to us by Robert Rodriguez, who was involved with the movie version of the show.
From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series aired its series premiere last night, Tuesday, March 11 at 9pm on El Rey. Check out the trailer for the show below.
