From New York, where her boyfriend Chino Darín accompanied her, The actress who gives life to Tokio in La Casa de Papel, told among other things about her meeting with Madonna and the fascination of the queen of pop for the Netflix series that she stars in.
It all started when the Spanish woman said that she could not believe the fury that there was for her work in the world and gave an example of a New Year’s party in Uruguay in 2017 that she attended with her partner and with her father-in-law, Ricardo Darín: “Suddenly, everyone recognized me and told me about Tokyo. I said to my boyfriend: ‘What a coincidence that everyone who watches the series is at this party.’
But the displays of fanaticism did not stop at a party in Uruguay. Later, Tokyo in fiction met Madonna on a plane and the singer told her that she loved fiction and that her favorite character from the series was precisely the one she played.
In another of the anecdotes that feed this type of interview, Corberó spoke of the moment when Madonna was found on a plane. The singer confessed that Tokio was her favorite character from the series, gave her her phone number and sent her a message to warn her that she had forgotten her passport in her seat.

One day I said, ‘I am not qualified to say goodbye to Tokyo’. And it is not necessary, because if Tokyo is me, why not stay inside? And we live together until I’m ready to let go. At the moment she is here, still and that’s why I can’t tell you if I miss her ”.
“Thanks to La Casa de Papel my life has changed in many ways, I will not fool you. The good thing is that my environment remains the same and I always try to stay out of it. Our work is very intense and when we are filming it is many hours and when we are doing promotions it is a lot of dedication and time … I think it is very good for me, to return to earth, to be with my family, with my boy, with my longtime friends (…) What has changed the most is that I am traveling a lot. Since what happened with the series internationally, before the pandemic, that year, he had traveled to 14 different countries in one year. And there I said, that is what changes your life, “he recalled.
