  • Quotes

    • (About acting in American soap operas compared to telenovelas)
      Silvana: I like it because you don't know what will happen. Maybe I will turn out to be crazy or the bad one. You can be Paloma but play all different sides to her. That's how people are-you can know someone and not see them for a few years and then they may have totally changed.

    • (About how she got the role of Paloma)
      Silvana: I was on the Internet and I saw there was a casting call in Miami for Passions for guys. I told my boyfriend and a couple of friends about it. My boyfriend called his agent and she told me I could go to see if they had any parts for me. I told them I had been working for Telemundo and they said they'd been looking for Paloma. I wound up reading at the casting call and then the next week I flew to Los Angeles to test for the camera.

    • (About her first day on the set ofPassions)
      Silvana: I was nervous but also very excited. I felt a little strange because I was the new one and they are all like a family. But everyone was so nice.
