Do you still remember the chinita kid who played the role of Cruzita in Marimar?

Experts say that the mark of a true actress is her commitment to her role. Because she played her part convincingly well, many people can’t help but feel impressed whenever Chezca Salcedo acts her part. Even though she was young when she entered the showbiz industry, she gave justice to the role of Cruzita.
