DOES VERÓNICA LANDÍN FROM “EL REY, VICENTE FERNÁNDEZ” EXIST IN REAL LIFE?

From the fifth episode of “El rey, Vicente Fernández”, Gaby Espino plays Verónica Landín, a journalist who is hired by the artist’s first manager to interview him.

However, the biographical series shows that Verónica Landín wants to make Vicente Fernández look bad and, for that reason, she edits “Chente’s” answers to make him look arrogant and ungrateful, even in front of his family, who believe every word published. Fortunately, the singer eventually unmasks Verónica in front of the media.

Verónica accompanies Vicente in two stages of his life: when he is a young man making his way in the artistic world and when he is a family man but at the same time an outstanding celebrity. Caracol TV itself says that “Verónica is a woman who is capable of anything for a scoop or chiva. She is perceptive, a good speaker, attractive, incisive, has good contacts, and also knows that she is powerful, that the place she has achieved on television gives her a status, one that she not only wants to preserve, but one that she wants to continue to increase”.

According to the production of “El rey, Vicente Fernández”, Verónica Landín is a fictional character that was created to represent the excesses to which a bad journalist can go to obtain recognition and fame.
