Renowned Mexican actress and singer Verónica Castro stars in "When I'm Young," an adaptation of the Korean film "Miss Granny."

The film tells the story of 70-year-old Malena (Verónica Castro), who gets a second chance at life when she magically becomes her 22-year-old self. This time, posing as "Maria" (Natasha Dupeyrón) to hide her true identity, she becomes the lead singer in her grandson's band trying to reclaim the dream of singing, the dream she once had to give up.

In addition to Veronica and Natasha, the star cast includes Michael Ronda, Eduardo Santamaria, Pierre Louis, and Alejandra Barros with a special performance by Edgar Vivar and special participation by Maribel Fernandez and Manuel "Flaco" Ibañez. 

The romantic comedy is directed by Raúl Martínez; and the script has been written by Juan Carlos Garzón and Angélica Gudiño.

“When I am young” is produced by 3Pas Studios, a company owned by Mexican actor, producer and comedian Eugenio Derbez.

The film opened in Mexico on September 15 and will be shown in theaters in the United States starting on September 23.

Who is Verónica Castro?

Verónica Judith Sainz Castro, known as Verónica Castro, is probably one of the best-known faces on Latin American television.

She was born on October 19, 1952 in Mexico City. She began her career in the late 1960s and from the 1970s to the 1990s she participated in numerous telenovelas, including "Love has a woman's face", "The building opposite", "Barata de primavera", “The rich also cry”, “The right to be born”, and “Small town, big hell”. She worked in movies, plays and series such as "Emma" and "La Casa de las Flores". She had also host television programs such as the renowned show “En familia con Chabelo”. 

After decades of being away from the entertainment industry, this new film marks the return of Verónica Castro to the screen. The production could also represent her goodbye,  as she admitted in an interview. "This film is like a refresher for me, because I recorded it three years ago, and it may be the last one I make in my life," she said in Caras Magazine.

Verónica is the mother of two children, Cristian and Michel. Cristian has inherited his passion for music from his mother; while the second stands out in the cinema industry.
