Young actress Karen Machado came to play the character of Sofía in the television series Calendario with the help of the also actress and theater director Massiel Dueñas (Beatriz in Asuntos Pendientes): "she sent my photo, they called me, I did a casting for Sofía and thank God I was chosen," she told us via WhatsApp.

The teenager we met in ninth grade during season one has evolved a lot into this eleventh grader we watch on screen every Sunday:

"I never imagined that I could grow up that much, and it's something I appreciate because it made me deeply aware of what I wanted as an actress."

In the words of the actress herself, she and Sofia have "many things in common."

"I tried not to take Sofia too far away from me, even though I have not experienced many of Sofia’s challenges," she said.

She did not want to tell too much about Sofia’s transformations. Hence, she invites us to follow the series to dig deeper into her character with her new nuances.
