SHE’S best known for her sultry roles as a temptress in a string of Hollywood films.
But Paz Vega’s latest roll couldn’t be further from that of hit movies, including Sex and Lucia and Other side of the Bed.
In her latest role she plays the part of a nun based on the Costa de la Luz.
Returning to Spain after 20 years in Rome, she discovers her old boyfriend Bruno has become a local drug lord.
In the TV programme, out this week, Perdoname, Senor, she tackles a subject close to home for many Gibraltarians and Andalucians.
Filmed in many local locations, including Zahara de los Atunes, Barbate, Canos de Meca and Zahora, the drama starts on Telecinco tonight.
Stany Coppet plays the part of the drug dealer, who meets Lucia (Vega), by the famous Trafalgar lighthouse.
