“Basically I lost a lot of things, I lost my inner peace, the love I had for my family, for my work. I didn’t want any kind of commitment to anything or anyone. I was resentful of very personal things and little by little I was submerged in the dark mud of alcohol and drugs.
Rafael Amaya ‘hit rock bottom’
Thanks to his role as Aurelio Casillas in the Telemundo production, Amaya achieved international fame, but towards the end of the seventh season recordings, in 2019, he disappeared. The rumors that circulated for months of his addictions are now confirmed. The interpreter assured that he hit rock bottom eight months ago, after traveling through various places, hiding and without giving explanations to anyone.
“I felt that I had lost everything, I even felt that my life was worthless, that it had been a mistake to have been an actor, that fame did not help me at all. Now I see that the fame and the closeness that I can have with people is something positive ”.
“I was blinded by the dark cloak of drug addiction”
In addition to his family, the actor had the support of his compadre and colleague Roberto Tapia, who has supported him in his detoxification process: “I am a human being, I am not a robot. I got carried away by alcohol, banalities, excesses, I lived a life of excesses. And if it hadn’t been for my colleagues and the clinic, I wouldn’t have been able to get ahead.
“I didn’t know that I had such beautiful people around me, that there were people who loved me so much and appreciated me. I was blind, I was blinded by the dark cloak of drug addiction and now I feel that the blindfold was removed and I am deeply grateful to all people and to God, ”he admitted (With information from Agencia Reforma).
