Johnny Depp has shared films with many Hollywood stars.
However, he also had participated with a beloved figure for the US- Latino audience.
The queen of Tex Mex, Selena Quintanilla, and the American actor shared the screen in 1994.
What movie did Depp and Selena work on together?
The queen of Tex Mex not only had a passion for music. She also liked the acting scene.
Depp and Selena both shared a dream to succeed with their talent.
Both Johnny Depp and Selena Quintanilla were part of Don Juan DeMarco, a film made in 1994.
What is Don Juan DeMarco about?
Francis Ford Coppola directed the story of a psychiatrist played by Marlon Brando.
Before his retirement, the psychiatrist and his wife faced the peculiar case of Don Juan DeMarco, played by Johnny Depp.
DeMarco was a man with depression claiming to be the real Don Juan.
It was one of Depp’s breakthrough roles and one that left a deep impression on Quintanilla.
During the film, Selena appeared singing a Mexican-style song.
The then 22-year-old singer serenaded the psychologist and her partner during a romantic dinner at a restaurant.
“It’s a short little piece. I’m a mariachi singer,” Selena happily revealed almost 30 years ago in an interview about the film.
Selena not only appeared in the movie. The Mexican-American singer interpreted the soundtrack with four songs.
In the credits, she does not appear with her iconic name as we know it, but as “Singer” with the name of Selena Perez.
The singer was very excited about this kind of project in which she not only sang for the whole world but also showed her talent as an actress.
Unfortunately, Selena Quintanilla was killed before the film Don Juan DeMarco was released.
