Young Puerto Rican-born actress Priscilla Delgado plays an important role (Antía) in Pedro Almodóvar’s latest film, Julieta. She recently received great news when she found out that that the Spanish film has been nominated to compete for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. El Nuevo Día reports:
Priscilla, 14, born in San Juan, but nationalized as a Spanish citizen, has a prominent role alongside the protagonists of the film, Adriana Ugarte and Emma Suárez, who play Juliet, young and old, respectively. [. . .]
As recently as last month the teen was on the island visiting her Puerto Rican family with his mother, Priscila Silva. They visited the beaches of Vieques and her native San Juan. In fact, before taking the plane back to Spain, she stopped at her “favorite little beach where my father used to take me at the Condado [Strip]” for a last dip.
The schedule for the star of the series “Los protegidos” (which she did when she was 7 years old and is still being aired) is fairly packed with the premiere of her latest film “Abracadabra,” and offers for projects in English.
