I barely spoke to her two or three times, but it was enough for me to know that she was not only an actress with unusual comedic talent and a powerful instinct, but also that she had a sensitive, cultivated and curious personality, whose commitment to her art was beyond the professional, as evidenced by the fact that he continued to work at a Stakhanovite pace on television, in the cinema and in the theater, despite the fact that the pain of the disease made his days extremely hard. She died as great actors do, without overacting: there were colleagues who did not even know that she was in the hospital.
For Spain, Laura Gómez-Lacueva was the new star of The one that is coming. For Aragón, he was one of the stars of Oregon TVthe successful humor program on regional television, where he earned fame, sketch to sketch. For the world of actors, he was a beast of the theater, both on stage and in directing. Her friends praise her obsessive dedication, her perfectionism and her enormous capacity for work. The latter is actually a curse: in such a competitive and cruel profession, being a hard worker is a requirement.
Gómez-Lacueva found his place —and it was difficult for him— in that nobility of supporting actors, or supporting actors, as they were called before. in this country without star system, that form of nobility means winning the eternal affection of the public. But from his brilliance in the theater and in the cinema, something else was guessed, something that was to come and that had to do with his dramaturgical and literary erudition, with his way of conversing, so warm and friendly. It was something very difficult to see in his characters, but from time to time it appeared. Damn, if he’d just chatted with her a little more, she’d know how to explain what the hell was so special by now.
