Big Break: Ms. Barrera was 23 and fresh out of college when she auditioned and got cast in “Siempre Tuya Acapulco.” “It was a big deal because I’d only done small parts in telenovelas prior to that and I was young compared to leading ladies in other telenovelas,” she said. “I was shocked and nervous. I had never led a telenovela, which meant shooting 20 or more scenes a day, six days a week and basically carrying the story.”
