Gloria Estefan

  1. Angela Lanza, The Perez Family, 1995.   “At her audition,   I wanted to cast Angela on the spot for her first film,” says Indian film-maker Mira Nair.   “But the studio wanted a famous Latin singer to cash in on. So, I went through the motions,   wheeling and dealing   Gloria Estefan   (and Gloria Trevi,   Celia Noel, etc), a host of talented singers but stuck out for Angela – the definitive Flavia.   Her effervescence!”
  2. Catherine Zeta-Jones, Rock of Ages, 2011.   The Cuban-born singer –  Gloria María Milagrosa Fajardo García Estefan – was almostg a shoo-in for Patricia Whitmore.  Apparently, even though she lost  out to CZJ, she subbed for her at some table-readings.   But why would she have been there…?
