She could’ve been just another Mexican soap starlet, but Verónica Merchant was too wild and artistic to stay on the small screen. She’d already established herself as one of her country’s leading young stage actresses before taking her first small-screen role on Corazón salvaje. Verónica then gave her male soap fans plenty to lather up about in Hasta morir (1994), a.k.a. ’Til Death, where she bares her bod in some bold sex scenes. She continues to spice up her country’s living rooms, but Deep Crimson (1996) firmly established Verónica as one of Mexico’s sexiest and most daring stars. This skinternational remake of The Honeymoon Killers (1970) gave Verónica a stunning showcase as a doomed lonelyheart who comes to a miserable end--but not before coming with co-star Daniel Giménez Cacho.
