To celebrate and say farewell to the beloved teen dramedy Love, Victor, we are joined by three of its young stars, Anthony Turpel (Felix), Isabella Ferreira (Pilar) and Mateo Fernandez (Adrian). They talk about their characters growth, share what they hope viewers will take away from the series and reminisce about what they were thinking and feeling on their first day of production.
"I remember being so nervous and not knowing what to do or what to say," Ferreira shares. Although the young actress had worked on series like Netflix's Orange Is the New Black, her role in Love, Victor was her first series regular role. "I was so scared, but everyone was so sweet and kind and everyone had open arms."
Fernandez was similarly nervous, especially being the youngest member of the cast and only being nine years old at the time of his casting. "I was so shy, I didn't say a word," he recalls.
Looking back on his character's growth throughout the series, Turpel reflects on everything Felix has gone through, starting as the goofy best friend and later having to become his mother's caretaker when her depression was at its worst. "Balancing that and school and learning to reach out for help, or even figure out what help is. In his mind, everything was fine, and he was dealing with this for a long time. Felix has grown incredibly over the last three years."
Ferreira says that she is eager for the audience to see "the chaos that is season three ... but we send things off in a very good way. We really care so much about the show and just wanted to leave it off in a really peaceful manner."
"I'm excited to see how people react to the chaos and to the endings, especially if they have predictions for what happens after the series ends," Fernandez adds.
