Comedy has become one of Itati Cantoral’s specialties when it comes to acting. In the new TV comedy Amores con Trampa, the Mexican actress plays Isabel Velasco. She is submissive and willing to do anything her husband -played by Ernesto Laguardia- would tell her to do. To the point that she even agrees to her husband’s idea to become her neighbors’s mistress for money.
Amores con Trampa is a story of a humble family that gets rich after selling their land in the countryside. The whole family, along with their farm animals, decide to move to the big city for better opportunities. So, they move into a new home, where they become neighbors of the Velasco family, who later planned to take their money.
Itati Cantoral, Ernesto Laguardia, Eduardo Yáñez and Africa Zavala have the roles of the main characters in the telenovela.
