It was in “At the end of the rainbow”, where Carlos had his first opportunity and it seemed that he could continue in the field of drama, but almost immediately he joined the cast of “Chiquilladas”, where he began to stand out… as a comic actor! !” reads the magazine’s report, in which some photographs are also published: one of a live show with the Chiquidrácula character, another in which he appears with Juan Gabriel and a group of fans.
