Starring Hollywood actor/telenovela heartthrob Cristián de la Fuente and Mexican leading lady Silvia Navarro, the new telenovela premieres on Monday, August 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT (9 p.m. Central)
The Univision Network’s newest addition to its powerful primetime telenovela lineup is “Amor Bravío” (Fierce Love), a riveting production featuring an A-list cast headlined by crossover star Cristián de la Fuente and celebrated Mexican actress Silvia Navarro.
Camila Monterde (Navarro) is a beautiful veterinarian whose life has been torn apart by a tragic accident in which her fiancé was killed. Hoping to ease her depression, her loving uncle Daniel (Rogelio Guerra) invites her to live at his expansive ranch, where she can rest and recover while caring for the many animals he keeps there. The ranch is managed by Alonso (Flavio Medina), an ambitious man who sees Camila’s arrival as the perfect opportunity to get his hands on the Monterde fortune; since Don Daniel has no children and loves Camila dearly, it’s logical to assume that she will be his heir. So Alonso, aided by his conniving mother Isadora (Leticia Calderón), initiates his plan to win Camila’s heart and marry her.
Meanwhile, thousands of miles away in Chile, Daniel Díaz (Cristián de la Fuente) leads a happy life with his wife, who is expecting their first child. He has no idea that his fate is linked to the Monterdes in Mexico, or how drastically his life will soon change. Thirty years ago, Daniel’s late mother, Agatha, had a torrid affair with Daniel Monterde but never told her son about it, or that she named him after the man she loved. However, Don Daniel recently began suspecting that Agatha’s son could be his only child. Now Daniel suddenly receives a letter stating that he has come into a substantial inheritance and must travel to Mexico to claim it. Surprised and curious, he’s about to make the trip when a vicious lie disrupts his plans and lands him in prison, causing him to lose the inheritance and his family.
Sometime later, deeply bitter and hungry for revenge, Daniel travels to Mexico determined to destroy the Monterde family, which he blames for his terrible misfortune. Assuming a false identity, he takes a job at the Monterde ranch to be close to his prey. His vengeance is perfectly planned except for one unexpected development: he and Camila fall passionately in love—and that changes everything.
Premieres Monday, August 13, 2012 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT (9 p.m. Central). Will air Monday-Friday at the same time.
