As soon as the clapperboard sounded, Enrique Rocha He got serious for his scenes, usually as a villain, because his imposing voice allowed him to incarnate from unquestionable and strict patriarchs as in ‘Two Women, One Way’ to a diabolical agent who wanted to destroy a guardian angel in ‘Serafín’ .
But as soon as they gave the cut, the Guanajuato actor, who died on Sunday, November 7 at the age of 81, of natural causes, changed.
Producers, actors and friends who worked with “Rochón”, as they called him because of the seriousness of his voice, highlighted this great contradiction: the public will remember him as the villain of the story, but they will do so as someone very animated.
“Maybe no one places it that way, but he was the funniest guy i ever met in my whole life, with whom I have laughed the most. We literally fell to the floor from laughing so much. I even had a stomach ache. He had a sense of humor that was always so jovial, with so much energy. At that time I had a very jealous boyfriend and he was more than me about going out to dinner with Enrique, and even so I went with him, because literally we saw each other to laugh“, Shared in an interview Lorena herrera, who was with Rocha in ‘Dos Mujeres, Un camino’.
Rocha unexpectedly discovered her profession at the age of 17 through a theatrical audition that was not attended by an actor. After that, he made his debut in the 1960s in film and television, and faced challenges such as the film El Proceso de Cristo (1966), by Julio Bracho.
Thanks to ‘La Mentira’ (1965) other melodramas arrived, such as ‘Mundo de Toy’ (1974), ‘When the Children are Van’ (1983), ‘My Little Traviesa’ (1997) and ‘El Privilegio de Amar’ ( 1998).
While playing parents who did not understand young people, as in ‘Rebelde’ (2004), curiously he became a guide for the actors who were starting.
“I debuted in How It Hurts to Callar, I turned 19 there and my tres leches cake was bought by ‘Rochón’. He was our dad, especially our generation. He was a very classy man, always inviting, beautiful, taking everyone into account. That’s why we guys always hang around and love it, “recalled the actress. Cynthia klitbo.
Both were the antagonists in ‘El Privilegio de Amar’, by Carla estrada, who remembered the actor as the most professional, who always arrived on time with the texts learned.
“He was very chivalrous, very attentive, very polite, very proper, but, above all, a good man who enjoyed life. I think he did not want anythingHe was a man who really enjoyed it ”, stressed the producer.
Of the Thursday meals producers had before the pandemic, Juan Osorio he remembers his habit of drinking whiskey, as well as his mood.
“Rocha was a gallant, a great conqueror with that voice and we all teased him about, at that age, how his heart was. Meeting him was fantastic, because it was full of anecdotes. His very voice lent itself to make us laugh, to be nice. He has left a very great legacy and an equally great emptiness in the artistic environment“, Highlighted Osorio, who produced ‘Una Familia con Suerte’.
