On Thursday, November 5, a news item was released that shocked the show and society in general, as the actor Eleazar “N” was arrested by elements of the capital police after being denounced by the neighbors of his girlfriend , the model and Peruvian singer Tefi Valenzuela, whom the actor allegedly verbally and physically assaulted.
After this violent event, Eleazar was transferred to the Benito Juárez mayor's office, where he was linked to the process and transferred to the North Prison of Mexico City , where he is waiting for his next hearing in which he can tell his version of history.
With this unfortunate news, his participation in the telenovela La mexicana y el güero , a production in which Eleazar was currently working and which continues with broadcasts “stuck to the air”, was in doubt.

It was until today that the producer of the melodrama starred by Itatí Cantoral and Juan Soler, Nicandro Díaz, announced that the actor was definitely out of the project because he did not know what would be the legal course that his situation would take.
It was on his social networks where the director published a statement in which, in addition to announcing Eleazar's departure, he expressed that he is already looking for the actor who will replace him, so he will call a casting . So reads the message that the producer shared this Tuesday, November 10:
“Regarding the events related to the actor Eleazar Gómez, the production sees the need to replace him in the character he plays in the telenovela” La mexicana y el güero “for which we will carry out a small casting in the coming days.
It is important to note that neither Televisa nor the production support any type of violence. The times we live in are difficult, our work must continue and the soap opera will do so with the appropriate measures. Production: Nicandro Díaz González “.

Before this message, it was Joe Bonilla who served as his manager until the night of the events, who wrote “It is the correct and pertinent thing, my dear Nicandro” , causing criticism from some users, who called them a “bad friend” and interested.
Despite the fact that the news was just released, the information has now emerged that two actors would seek to keep the role of “Sebastián” , who until a week ago played the accused of family violence.
According to the magazine TV Notes , there are already two people in contention for this character, they are the histrions Santiago Ramundo and Sebastián Caicedo . According to the publication, both interpreters are already in an exhaustive casting to be able to join the soap opera playing doctor “Sebastián de la Mora” , a role of great importance in the story.

The magazine assures that both Ramundo and Caicedo have already shown a lot of professionalism, respect and commitment in their desire to join Nicandro Díaz's project , a story that is already in its last weeks of recording, so either of the two young actors in to keep the paper, he would have to join the project and start recording as soon as possible, since both the scenes and the calls are already fully scheduled .
According to TV Notes , so far the production has not yet opted for either of the two interpreters , but according to their sources, both have performed excellently in their casting, which has left the producer satisfied.

Santiago Ramundo is an Argentine actor who has already participated in the telenovelas Sueño de amor and Médicos: Línea de vida ; Sebastián Caicedo has already collaborated mainly in series and programs in the United States . It is worth mentioning that both actors bear a remarkable physical resemblance to Eleazar “N”, so the transition of his character would be subtle.
