I wholeheartedly thank the Holy Child of Atocha because when I was a little boy I met the great Roberto Gomez Bolaños, Chespirito. Don Roberto’s fabulous talent gave to Hispanic America unforgivable characters like Chavo from the 8, Red Grasshopper, Chompiras and many others that played an important part in the childhood of many people.

I dedicate this retablo to Saint Nicholas of Bari for the talent that the actor Bruce Davidson has. When I was a child I saw the movie “Willard”. As a result, I have a deadly fear of rats. I hope Bruce doesn’t suffer from the same fear after having shot this horrifying but marvelous movie.

I dedicate this retablo to Saint Michael the Archangel for the incredible career of the legendary actor Andre Robinson. His capacity of playing all types of roles is incomparable. From subtle and intelligent characters to the most twisted villain you can imagine, mr. Robinson is always fascinating in his performance.

Last year I participated for a first time in the staging about the passion and death of Jesus Christ on Holy Week playing Jesus. Although I had been preparing for months, I was about to faint that day because of strain and heat. I asked the Lord of Chalma to help me and to give me strength to finish the Way of the Cross, and he did so, for which I’m thankfully dedicate this retablo.

I dedicate this ex-voto to Saint Peter for the legendary carrier of the actor Richard Dreyfuss. It’s always a pleasure to see him act. He rules every scene with his presence. All those famous movies he acted in would never have had big success without him. I wish him many years more, health and success.
