New recruit in season 4 of Elite, Carla Díaz plays Ari, a rich student of Las Encinas who is reminiscent of Lucrecia. But originally, the actress should have played another character in the Spanish Netflix series.
Among the newcomers of season 4 of Elite, Carla Díaz plays Ariana, a student at Las Encinas high school. Involved in a love triangle with Samuel (Itzan Escamilla) and Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), the young woman is at the heart of the plot of the fourth season of the Spanish series since she is the victim of an assault and the police is investigating.
But the actress should not normally have played Ariana since the production had contacted her directly to play another character in the Spanish series. Carla Díaz told Cosmopolitan Spain that the Elite team “called her to play Mencía”. This character, finally embodied by Martina Cariddi, however, pleased Carla Díaz a lot:
“He’s a very beautiful character and at first I liked him a lot more because Ari’s was not as developed when I took the tests. When they told me I got the part , they made changes that brought more playing possibilities. In the end, I liked her all the more and it was more enjoyable to play her. “
Very important in the plot of the fourth season, Carla Díaz gradually discovered the various twists and turns, especially sentimental, and considers that Ari is polyamorous: “I wanted to know more about what happened but the last chapters gave it to us later, so I started shooting with the same info as the viewer.
I think it’s very normal to love two people at the same time. If one gives you certain things and the other gives you others, that’s understandable. Ari should be “polyamorous”. “
Guzman having gone on a road trip at the end of season 4, how will the relationship between Samuel and Ari be in the continuation of the Spanish series? Season 5 of Elite, currently filming, will provide the answer to this question.
