Kate del Castillo is preparing to face on wheels with celebrities from film, television, sports, music and fashion in the competitive car race Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, celebrated on 14 April.
In the event, which takes place prior to the Grand Prix of Long Beach, California, the Mexican actress will be going against Adrien Brody, Christopher Meloni & Scott Porter, and others with the objective to help children with cancer.
"I am very happy with this, first because they talked about inviting me, because I got in my mere bulk, because I love the action stuff and speed," said Kate.
"I'm fascinated, and I was in several practices and learned a lot about cars and their reactions in certain movements, as in the corners."
The actress pointed out that the race in the participate will be an urban circuit on the streets of the center of this city.
"And best of all, this race is to raise funds for children with cancer. Now it is that the money is intended to meet research seeking a cure for cancer.
"And, well, on the other hand its a super event, you know incredible people. I'm so excited, now I want to be there," admitted
Kate del Castillo said that taping K-11 was a great challenge, as it was playing Julio "Mousey" Ruiz, a transsexual who controls the prison unit where there are gay, bisexual and transgender people.
"I'm very very excited because it was a very difficult job, and work hard because I entered a world which for me was as unknown as transsexuality. But at the same time, it was very moving about the lives of these people and seeing all the things that happen.
"This experience opened my mind. It's a hard world, I really learned a lot and I'm glad I understand and accept a very different world, "she shared.
The K-11 drama, directed by Jules Stewart, tells the story of Raymond Jr. Saxx a music producer in his rampant drug induced state kills a person accidentally, so they send him to prison to the cell and there he founds "Mousey".
Shyboy: I am in K-11 for (ADW) Assault with a Deadly Weapon and ended up in K-11 because my homeboy Mousey had a lot of pull and pulled me away from the mainline to be the muscle behind the power together with Sledgehammer (Cameron Stewart) in K-11.
Luis Moncada: I was born in Honduras and came to the US when I was young. My mother was a single mother raising 3 boys in some of the rougher areas of Los Angeles. I joined a gang, went to prison a couple of times, got out, and met my wife who happened to be a federal parole officer (not mine LOL). She gave me the little extra push I needed. That’s when I really started to change my life around.
Most of my friends from the neighborhood were serving life sentences or dead. I realized this was not the life I wanted to live anymore. Luck does happen- I never intended to be an “actor.” I was working security on a film when a day player failed to show. The director approached me and offered me his role in a movie. The day player gig turned into a month of work and the start of my career. I figured, why not- I didn’t need to act much to play these roles. I had lived the life. Soon I realized I had something unique to offer Hollywood. For years Hollywood cast “actors” to play gangsters or prison roles, but I offered the real deal. I am able to bring my real life experience to set. These parts opened doors that gave me the opportunity to expand my character to play more intricate roles.
The most important role I played was a mentor. When I started doing motivational speaking, the kids I talked to saw a way out that many of us didn’t know existed. I was able to relate to these kids and they were able to relate to me. I know the struggles that they go through. I understood how it was growing up in some of the rougher areas. These kids were inspired and offered a new hope. So I became a mentor to the kids that were once just like me.
In my free time I enjoy boxing and Muy Thai fighting. I have been able to get some of these kids off the street and into the gym where I train them to use their aggression in the ring and not in the streets.
Luis Moncada has been acting in movies and television for over ten years. His television experience includes roles on Breaking Bad, Dexter, Castle, The Mentalist, Common Law and CSI: Miami. His movie experience includes roles in Collateral, Fast and Furious, and K-11.
