Mexican Actress Linked to El Chapo Breaks Her Silence on Twitter

Sean Penn isn’t the only actor involved in the El Chapo saga; Mexican actress Kate del Castillo has been mentioned all over the place as a key figure too.

Del Castillo is a famous telenovela actress who has made appearances in U.S. TV shows like Weeds, CSI: Miami, and Jane the Virgin. She’s set to star in an upcoming Netflix series called Ingoberable, playing the First Lady of Mexico. Del Castillo has tweeted about El Chapo in the past, saying that she believes more in him than the Mexican government.

Texts released last night reportedly show how eager El Chapo was to meet with her, drink with her, etc. Del Castillo was the one who helped set up Penn’s big interview with the drug kingpin.

Well, earlier tonight, she broke her silence about the whole thing with a message both in English and Spanish on Twitter:

Mexican authorities reportedly want to speak with both Penn and del Castillo.
