The main mystery of the 34th edition of the Goya Awards has been resolved. Pepa Flores, Marisol, will not collect the Goya of Honor, faithful to the retirement from public and professional life that was imposed in 1985. Two of the three daughters she had with the dancer Antonio Gades, the actress María Esteve and the singer Celia Flores, have confirmed on the former’s Instagram account that they will go up tonight to the stage of the Martín Carpena Sports Pavilion in Málaga to thank him for the award in his mother’s place.
«Today is the Spanish cinema festival and my sister Celia and I could not be more proud to represent my mother and collect in her name such a beautiful recognition that the academy gives her with so much love and that makes her so excited, which is the Goya of honor. Congratulations Pepita. “You deserve it!” writes María Esteve.
Marisol will watch the gala from her apartment in a tower in Malagueta, just 20 minutes by car from the Martín Carpena. Her family had already warned that the actress and singer was not going to break the retirement imposed in 1985. “It’s her decision.” recalled the president of the Academy, Mariano Barroso. “The Goya of Honor is awarded for their career and what they represent, not so that they can go and collect it.” The Academy had already announced that Marisol’s own daughter, Celia Flores, and the singer Amaia, a confessed admirer of the singer, would perform one of her songs on stage.
