An owner who lives in the building and who for security reasons did not want to reveal her identity, commented gracefully to Infobae that “we are doing a remodeling in our house and these days they started shooting the series again. There is a lot of camera deployment, people working on the sidewalk, and recently when I entered the building I saw that Franchella was talking to a man, and I asked him for the manager. I was tempted. They had to cut the scene because I wanted to get out of the building and I couldn’t.”
