Young actress Paulina Chávez is just getting started, but her career is already on the verge of rising. So much so, that last year (2021) she even headlined her own series, The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia on Netflix.
Having said that here’s her boyfriend, parents, ethnicity-related tales, and more.
Paulina Chávez On Netflix’s Fate: The Winx Saga
When Netflix debuted the first season of Fate: The Winx Saga in 2021, it was met with surplus criticism from fans. Because the modern-set fantasy, inspired by Nickelodeon’s animated Winx Club, did not include Flora. It was instead substituted by a new white character named Terra (Eliot Salt).
So, when the show’s second season launched on 16 September 2022, the fan-favorite character, Flora was finally introduced to fans in form of actor Paulina Chávez.
Flora is described as free-spirited and well-traveled. She is adding to the dynamic between Bloom Peters (Abigail Cowen) and the fairies in the suite. While in Paulina’s words, she is very much a person that cares about people a lot, and that is what makes her so easily lovable. The actress also shared that among other things embodying Flora’s confidence was a challenging part. “She really controls the room when she’s in it, and that’s something that I had to learn to do. I’m a little shy,” she confessed.
As to prepare for the role, Paulina said she wrote pages and pages of internal dialogue. She revealed that she also wrote a letter as Flora to herself and then burned it, almost like a ritual.
