LA LAUREN IS LA LUPE
Lauren Vélez in character as La Lupe in her solo show They Call Me La Lupe, soon to be a major motion picture.
Lauren Vélez (of Showtime's "Dexter" fame) is set to play famed Cuban singer La Lupe (née Guadalupe Victoria Yolí Raymond) in the biopic They Call Me La Lupe. The film is based on the solo show she performed last year (and for which she won an HOLA Award). She is using crowdraising platform Kickstarter to pay for pre-production costs. Check out the New York Daily News article about her and the fundraising campaign by clicking here.
