Leslie Wolf was born five years ago, but is actually 42. He’s a drag character played by Juan Tarquino from Bogotá, the same actor who gives life to Garbato in Pulpito, the most-watched production on non-Netflix ever. English speaking world.

Leslie allows Juan to uncover himself, to understand his past, to get closer to his roots. His grandmother dressed up and performed to entertain the family at parties.

What did it mean to you to be a part of the Pulpito series?

“Reviewing my feelings, I am extremely grateful for such an amazing opportunity that has been presented to me at this point in my life. It has been a wonderful and enriching experience as an actor.

In the series he is very much the villain, but in real life he is in complete contrast to Leslie Wolfe, another character in his life.

“Yes, she is a Colombian drag queen, she is a window to the happiness and freedom that I found as an artist. She is my boss, the vehicle that allowed me to stay in Pulpito in one way or another after a difficult casting process. I owe this character a new identity not only as a diverse individual, but also to this beautiful moment that I am living as an artist.

Doodle and Leslie are two very different worlds…

Kam, on the other hand, is a woman, a character who through her discourse seeks to give new meaning to the existence of diverse people in any place. I think these two characters have something in common, but it’s more than elegance and presence.”

If Scribble met Leslie, what would he say to her?

“He is such a bold boy in many things, but so rigid in others that I imagine he will be very violent, some very aggressive.”

And what would Leslie think of Scribble?

“The first thing I will say is that he is a daddy and I feel like stealing her earrings that she is wearing. I think it was rarely worn.” (Laughter).
