‘Chicago Pd’s Marina Squerciati Is the Ultimate Telenovela Fan
Marina Squerciati, who most know as Officer Kim Burgess in Chicago P.D., has quite a few hidden hobbies, one of which happens to be watching telenovelas!
The actress is currently in Mexico City, Mexico, working with Choose Chicago to promote the city of Chicago, Illinois, and while there, she visited the Mexican media company Televisa Espectáculos for an interview.
Squerciati, who speaks Spanish fluently, opened up about her love of all telenovelas, calling out a few favorites like Rosa salvaje and Dos mujeres, un camino.
She went one step further, revealing a talent for singing when she broke out in the theme song of Dos mujeres, un camino, showing off her great voice and flaunting her knowledge and appreciation of old telenovelas.
The caption of the video, which was written in Spanish, translates to, "EXCLUSIVE!! She is Marina Squerciati, one of the leading actresses in the police series 'Chicago. PD.' She speaks Spanish and also sings it remembering one of her favorite soap operas: 'Dos mujeres un camino' 🥰😍❤️👌 @marinasqu #chicagopd #kimburgess #dosmujeresuncamino #rosasalvaje."
The first telenovela Squerciati referenced, Rosa salvaje, aired from 1987 to 1988, while Dos mujeres, un camino was on TV from 1993 to 1994.
Based on the comments on the Instagram video, Squerciati has a lot of fans in Mexico and the Hispanic community.
Many comments praised Chicago P.D. and Squerciati as an actress, with one fan writing, "I love her!!! Amazing actress!! Every time I hear her speak Spanish I get too excited hahaha."
Another wrote said, "If I already adored her, I love her now that I heard her speak in Spanish. Love u @marinasqu @marinasqu big hug from Mexico 🇲🇽."
While out and about in Mexico City, Squerciati also got a lot of attention for her great fashion. The 39-year-old rocked a colorful bustier top and pants set at an earlier event, and during her interview with the Mexican media outlet, she stunned in another set from the same brand, Sandra Weil, which is based in Mexico City.
Squerciati shared a photo of the second day's outfit and wrote in the caption, "Day 2 in Mexico with @choosechicago! Did I give an interview in Spanish? Yes. Did I sing in Spanish? Yes. Do I regret it? You bet. Did I post in on my stories anyway? Of course."
With such a great singing voice, Squerciati certainly has no reason to be embarrassed by her lovely rendition of the telenovela theme song—and maybe one day she can act in one!
