Alfredo Valenzuela I Sevilla, (EFE).- The Sevillian town of Carmona is “one more character” in the series “The invisible girl”, a ‘thriller’ for adults that, based on the novel by the writer Blue Jeans, will premiere Disney+ next Wednesday, according to what the director of the series, Tito López Amado, and Blue Jeans himself, a native of Carmona, have told Efe.
López Amado, who has already directed thirty series, has assured EFE that “The invisible girl” is a series that “engages and that reflects life in a town in an impressive way, both the atmosphere and the silence, the wind and the real characters”, some of which the script was adapted to as the filming progressed and lasted for six months.
The actress Zoe Stein, based in Berlin and born in Barcelona in 2000, recalled the day in July last year when they filmed in 47 degree heat, and has ensured that the series consists of “several plots”, which generates suspense after a crime, that of the relationship of the young protagonist with her father -played by Daniel Grao- and that of situations derived from bullying.
From Carmona to Cardena
Blue Jeans has assured that it is very satisfied with the cinematographic result -the series was screened at the Teatro Cerezo de Carmona last Friday, in a special showing for the residents of the town- and has indicated that all the filming “has been very meticulous and respectful with Carmona, with its traditions and customs; the film begins with the real fair of the town”.
However, Carmona, who serves as the setting for practically the entire series, is “Cárdena” in fiction because Blue Jeans, which these days has put an end to its sixteenth book, did not want to involve the people of his family either. town in his story.
Blue Jeans has explained that with “The invisible girl” her narrative has gone “from little hearts to murders”, and has insisted, as López Amado has done, that it is a series for adult audiences -the recommendation is for people over 16 years old- and that it meets the suspense objectives that were marked in its narration.
“There has been very good energy, also on the set, from the selection of the actors, many of them Andalusian, and the fact that Disney is the one that premieres the series leaves me more than satisfied; Not even in my wildest dreams could I have imagined it ”, said the writer, who left Carmona at the age of 18 to study Journalism in Madrid but who maintains family and friendship ties with his town.
The narrow streets of the historic center
For Zoe Stein, nominated for Best New Actress in the last edition of the Goya Awards, it has been the longest work she has done so far, since the series, which can be seen in eight short episodes, has a total duration of four hours and fifteen minutes.
The actress has said that what she has liked most about Carmona have been the narrow streets of her historical case, some streets that at night, she has assured in coincidence with the director of the series, acquire a different air and propitious to suspense, with its silence and dimmed lighting.
Based on the first novel of the Blue Jeans trilogy of the same name, “The Invisible Girl”, starring the characters played by Zoe Stein and Daniel Grao, tells of the vicissitudes of a father and his daughter, involved in the investigation of the murder of a teenager during the summer festivities of a peaceful Andalusian town, a suffocating scenario in which all the town’s residents become suspects.
