- People have mixed opinions about his new look.
In February 2024, the ninth season of El Señor de los Cielos will premiere on Telemundo.
Mexican actor Rafael Amaya will once again play Aurelio Casillas, a role that catapulted him to fame.
A few days ago, actress Itatí Cantoral shared an image on social media that sparked a lot of discussion.
Unlike months ago, this time Rafael Amaya looks unrecognizable. What happened to him?
People say Rafael Amaya looks like a robot
It didn’t take long for users to react to the photo where Rafael Amaya looks unrecognizable.
It is worth noting that months ago he shocked his fans when he appeared looking much bulkier than usual.
«Why does my Rafa look like this?» «I have a theory that the real Rafa died, and they replaced him with this robot.»
Another person agreed that the actor does look like a robot, while someone else said he had a facelift. What could be the truth?
‘Face it like a man’
Something worth noting is that Rafael Amaya does not usually share posts on his own social media.
Perhaps because of the upcoming premiere of ESDLC, he has been a bit more active in recent days, mainly sharing videos from the series.
In one of these posts, which he uploaded on November 24, he appeared as Aurelio Casillas.
«Do you want to play errands, son? Just say when and where so we can set up the meeting. I’m here in one, well armed, with a thirst for lead and a desire to scratch.»
Rafael Amaya looks unrecognizable
It was around mid-year that Rafael Amaya once again made headlines with a dramatic new look.
According to El Universal, the person responsible for the actor’s radical physical change was his personal trainer.
Parker Andrew Hayward stated that Rafael had intentionally gained weight, but through strict diet and exercise sessions.
«My all-time favorite client right here! Rafael Amaya comes in and outdoes himself, almost more times than I do!» said the trainer.
Fans criticize Rafael Amaya for ‘looking bulky’
Comparing these images with the photo of Rafael Amaya that Itatí Cantoral posted, some wonder what is going on with the actor.
«We have been bulking up for a while, and he has been adding an incredible amount of muscle,» said his trainer.
In addition, Parker Andrew Hayward revealed that the actor combined solid nutrition with high volume and high tension to achieve this muscular physique.
We will have to wait for Rafa to appear at a public event or explain his physical transformation himself.
‘I let myself be carried away by alcohol’
In an interview with People En español, which was picked up by El Comercio de Perú, Rafael Amaya opened up about his struggles.
«I am a human being, I am not a robot. I let myself be carried away by alcohol, trivialities. I was blinded by the dark cloak of drug addiction,» he said.
Tapia said that his friend got lost in his role as Aurelio Casillas. To see the photo of Rafael Amayo CLICK HERE.
