Actress Goya Toledo and her good friend Penelope Cruz showed that they hold similar convictions at the opening of Goya Toledo's film "Marseilles". The beautiful actress appeared at the opening wearing a grey shirt which read "No Oil Prospecting Save Canary" to protest oil exploration in the islands.
This act is not a small statement as many actors and actresses would be unwilling to make such a protest at the premiere of a major film such as this but that is one of the traits that distinguishes Goya Toledo, she is fearless. She is great friends with Penelope Cruz and several entertainment insiders speculate that their similar personalities such as being fearless is something that has made them so close.
The actress starred with Maria Leone in the movie and she has been receiving outstanding reviews from her performance and some entertainment insiders are hinting that she might be receiving another "Goya" nomination for her performance.
She has admitted that she is living with great enthusiasm and during an interview revealed why she chose this particularly movie. For her the movie was about opportunities and also for a love of the truth.
It is a meaty role and her character was constantly evolving and changing as she and the director did many tests and improvisations and it led to many revisions of the text. The tests took almost two months and there was a lot of crying involved according to Goya Toledo but the comments of the critics suggest that all the hard work was worthwhile because her performance is considered by some as award worthy.
Goya Toledo, an actress of great courage and talent and maybe, a Goya winner in the near future.
