Timotea Vernal

11:10 PM By Juan Carlos Oganes

Met tonight with Paloma Yerovi thanks to a common friend who introduced me to her while doing the casting for the few female roles my film has.

I want her to play Timotea Vernal, Alfonso Ugarte's fiancee and love interest. As history tells, they were supposed to get married but he decided to stay in Peru while sending her to Europe fleeing from the war.
He wrote her a heartbreaking letter days before he died stating how destiny was delaying his promise to come back alive as he knew the end was close and probably wouldn't make it.

Touching indeed.

Can't seem to find an online picture of Timotea. Have it only in print. I'll post it as soon as I have it scanned.
