Verónica Echegui became one of the protagonists of the Feroz awards gala that took place on Tuesday night in Madrid and not only for being the winner of the award for best supporting actress for the film Explodes Explodes . The 37-year-old interpreter starred in a fun and romantic scene with her partner, the 39-year-old actor Álex García , when she heard her name and the emotion got the better of her and she forgot for a moment the health protocol to embrace to García, who was sitting to his right with a seat separating them.
Despite being together, Echegui quickly realized that the rules established that hugs could not be given and when the riot police actor lowered his mask to Give him a kiss, she shook her head without erasing her smile before heading to the stage to collect the award gratefully . “Boss, you deserve them all. What a pleasure to accompany you on every trip, ”García wrote hours later on his Instagram , along with an image of the actress with her award. [The gesture can be seen at minute 2:38:58 of the video].
The interpreter who became known to the world thanks to Yo soy la Juani (2006), by the hand of the filmmaker Bigas Luna, and the actor who has participated in Jauría , the play on the case of La Manada , have a decade together. Accustomed to keeping their relationship out of the spotlight, they don't hide and it is common for them to pose together on red carpets and presentations. Although on rare occasions, they also show their love on social networks. “I remember when I believed that I was not capable of loving anyone … So long ago, now I feel that that was another person. And then I met you. And we were two monkeys with guns, two unconscious who didn't even smell the journey they were starting … And now, not only have I discovered the true meaning of love, but I feel it running through all the cells of my being every day, your gypsy side. Thanks to everything I have learned with you and through you. Thank you, my love, "wrote Verónica Echegui on her Instagram for Álex García's 39th birthday, in 2019. A couple of years earlier it was he who, like a fairy tale , wrote a romantic story about his love story on his networks with a selfie of both of them.
The artists met in 2010 during the filming of the film Six Points on Emma , directed by Roberto Pérez Toledo, where she gave life to a blind woman who wants to be a mother and finds the perfect father in Álex García. A romance that moved from fiction to reality. Since then they have not separated. Maintaining a lasting relationship in the industry is not easy but they treat it with total ease also in their interviews, where they quote the other sometimes without being asked. “The passion with Vero is renewed. It is also that Vero is Gemini. There are many women in one, and you don't get bored, ”García told EL PAÍS last December . Both have previously recognized that the only secret to their success as a couple is loving each other and working on the relationship. They do not consider going through the altar although they do not rule out forming a family at some point.
For now, both are living a sweet moment also professionally and are focused on their projects. On screen they agreed again in Do not blame karma for what happens to you as an asshole (2016) but it has been their separate paths that have given each of them the most fruit. After El Feroz, Echegui looks expectantly at the Goya, nominated again for the Raffaela Carrá musical, while triumphing with the Amazon Prime series Tres Caminos and preparing a new project in Mexico. García, for his part, after several leading roles in romantic comedies and the success of Antidisturbios , in Movistar , has pending the premiere of Solo una vez , the Guillermo Ríos Bordón film where he shares a cast with Ariadna Gil and Silvia Alonso. : Elpais
