Mar-ti-ta! MAR-TI-TA! MARTITA! MARTITA! She wakes up smiling on the eighth day of filming in Barcelona. She says, "It's my first time getting up at such an early hour and feeling so excited." Wake up, make coffee, and then go to work. Atresmedia's team is waiting for her on the set with their cameras and scripts ready. Like all previous days, today will be long. A regidor shouts, "Precautionary!" On her clapperboard, the title of the series is clearly visible: 'Martita! Martita was the first actress in Martita's series.
Thirteen hours later, exhausted from the last "Cut!" Chayanne's "Mother Earth" begins to sound louder as she is exhausted from the last "Cut!" "Come on, team!" She exhorts the grenadine and then turns up the volume, dancing. "This elevates your spirits to the point that you start freaking out!" ".
Martita De Grana is the star in '!Martita!" ', a series that Atresmedia produced for Flooxer's digital platform. Now she is filming in Barcelona at full speed. They proposed the series to us recently, and you'll see that I'm very happy. It's a great feeling. It was a dream, she said on the phone at the end. She adds, "And there's merit in the shoot, it was all shot in twelve days, which is an incredible achievement." Six episodes of 22 minutes will be included in the series. If all goes well, there may be a second season. What's the story? Here's the summary:
Martita de Grana arrives at Barcelona after her tour of "Mi padre flipa". Barcelona will recharge her batteries and give her a fresh start. She isn't sure what her next steps will bring, but she feels Barcelona will help her find her passion. She is surrounded by a lot of pretense in the city and believes she isn't up to the challenge. She will try to adapt to a new environment, leaving behind her Granada traditions and her personal life.
"But what's fiction? Martita clarifies. Let's just say that it is Martita. Martita does monologues, and she just completed a tour. But what's really happening isn't my life," grins the Granada. Martita moves in with Maru Candel to live in the apartment she shares with her friend from Granada. "Yes! She is my friend. She was there for the casting and she loved it right from the start
Roger Batalla and Marta Aguilar complete the cast. Corbacho is very intelligent and acts as my representative. What do you know? They were together at the Palacio De Congresos years ago. Mariola, the piece of actress who plays me mother, is coming. You will have a lot of fun."
'Martita! 'Martita!' will be released in September and October. It is directed by Irene Moray who won the Goya award for best short film in 2020 for Suc de Sindria. Martita insists that she is amazing and Irene is fantastic. Her vision is amazing and the montage will be spectacular. The whole team is incredible. It is impossible to be happy.
Martita walks through Barcelona with her phone on the hook as Martita leaves the shoot. "I love Barcelona. It is one of the main reasons I loved A3Player. Barcelona has always been welcoming to me since I first took the stage. This is the place where most tickets were sold for "Mi padre Flipa" (the monologue which made her the top-grossing comedian of Spain )>>.).
Like many Granadans, she also has an emigrant clan in Barcelona. These uncles left many years ago to find work. The Martita effect is strong in this area as well as elsewhere in Spain. Grana is my name and I am proud of it. Everybody who stops me, no matter where they are, always mentions Grana. It's a nice job that I do: make people laugh. It is very rewarding to be praised by people.
The filming of "Martita!" was a very hectic time. The rhythm doesn't stop even though the cast is planning to go on vacation for a few days. La de Grana is close to the premiere of De Caperucita a Loba'. This film was inspired by Marta Gonzalez de Vega's text and in which she plays a leading role along with Santiago Segura (Jose Mota) and Berto Romero (among others). "I am also working on a new show, which will have many surprises. It will be ready for Grana and Barcelona in March. I will talk more about the show in the series... but that's all I can tell you. "An accomplice whispers":
Martita just signed a contract to Carcelen Management, one of Spain's most prominent film agencies. This firm manages Dani Rovira and Fernando Tejero as well as Luna Fulgencio, Luna Fulgencio and Cristina Castano. She says, "I hope more movie stuff comes out, which is fantastic," as she recalls the first Mancha Real gigs to which "four cats" went. The truth is that the pandemic was a turning point in my professional life. I tried hard to get videos every day, and people still stop me in the street to tell me how important they thought you were during the lockdown. "I have learned to cry."
There is no street corner in Spain where she hasn't been greeted by Spanish people. She was overwhelmed by the sudden fame and decided to seek out help. "Going to a psychologist was the best thing that I did this year. There was a time when I felt lost. It is important to remember that I am from a humble background and have had to learn how to accept this and get on the right path. Rozalen was a similar story to me when I spoke to her. I spoke with other people. My friends and family told me that the psychologist was the best. He was right. It's the best thing. Being able to talk freely with someone who doesn't judge you and gives you the best advice. I walk out of there with clear ideas and a sense of empowerment.
With a little Chayanne in background, Martita, Grana's, said goodbye.
