The actress Una Mujer Fantástica completes a successful year with a massive program for 2019 series, performance and film in Italy waiting after Oscar.
While Facebook and Instagram are counted before the end of the year, Daniela Vega (29) draws her own accounts at a time. There was a need to reduce the revolution after several of his paintings were around the world in 2018: in addition to director Sebastian Lelia and Meryl Streep for lunch before the Hollywood Academy Awards award ceremony last February; Passing the red carpet of the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles with the brothers Pablo and Juan de Dios Larraín, and the recognition that same night when a fantastic woman won the first Oscar for Chile. All this without mentioning the excitement that followed: covers and interviews, comments of all kinds, and even his name appeared among the 100 most influential people of the year according to Time magazine.
"The year was tense, fantastic. It was a beautiful opportunity given to me, and I think I got the pleasure of belonging to a team like Fábule, working with one of the world's greatest filmmakers, like Sebastian Lelio, and also experience. I've lived my transit for 15 years and I've always been proud that I was trans, but that was another Chile Pinochet was still alive, the exit was very dangerous and did not give us a job "It is my job to play and sing, and I give a little, because I do not want to justify or explain anybody to me anymore."

When I won Caleuche this year, I said three words that I think it is important to rebuild this country and expand the mind: rebellion, resistance and love. Expanding these constraints enables us to break up the remaining structures: I also speak of embezzlement in the Carabineros, the Catrillanca case, the Interior Ministry, and politics in general, which instead transformed dialogue into a war of the egos. The conquests are always collective and suddenly someone has to put a flag on the uninitiated place.
–Is this someone you?
"I could never say that I became a symbol of something or to think of myself as an icon or example of everything. I think I'm the least example of the world. I'm just following my way and returning to the previous thing, I also think that what Gonzalo Maza and Sebastian Lelio did was inspired by the things they saw or talked about in order to create a story about a fantastic woman. But it's a movie, and the movies do not stop wars … they're just movies. If anyone succeeds in infiltrating a social subject, it seems fantastic, but our job is to stir up the public. And my artist asks the viewer questions. For me, art is an equation, and viewers have to clean X.

–How do you project your career after so much exposure?
– Facilitating things, even though I've already interned my career. Not just because of movies, but because I was very encouraged and it is not known in Chile. I reward Phoenix and Platinum, and this is something I enjoy, the connection with the audience, being able to be loud and laugh. I feel like an artist from that time, and I like to be with people. I've always had the unconditional support of my family, but the love I get from people greatly appreciates. Today I feel that this support is transversal: follow me from ABC1 to C3, and I like to enjoy the taste of mixed ceviche.
