The actress Marisa Porcel, who rose to fame for her role as Pepa in the TV series Escenas de matrimonia, died this Wednesday, at age 74, according to the portal MadridEsTeatro on her Twitter account. "Maisa Porcel has left us ... one of those actresses of 'character' that we will miss ... DEP", is the text that MadridEsTeatro has inserted in the social network to communicate the death of the veteran actress.
Marisa Porcel interpreted in the TV comedy series Telecinco Escenas de matrimonia, (2007-2009) to Pepa, a peculiar wife that reflected the traditional Spanish marriage, along with the actor Pepe Ruiz, who played the role of her husband Avelino, roles that came from the program of varieties of José Luis Moreno Noche de fiesta and that they repeated in the series La sopa boba. Alberto Caballero, one of the creators, has said goodbye to her on Twitter: "Thanks for all those moments on and off the set." Caballero, and his sister Laura, they hired her again in Aquí no hay quien viva and La que se avecina in different roles.
Throughout her artistic life, the actress also worked in the magazine, the theater and the cinema, where she worked three times with Carlos Saura (La prima Angélica, Ana y los lobos y El jardín de las delicias), three times with Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón (Habla, mudita, Camada negra y La mitad del cielo) and Narciso Ibáñez Serrador (¿Quién puede matar a un niño?). On television she appeared in Curro Jiménez, Los ladrones van a la oficina, Médico de familia, Historias para no dormir and, already in her last years of fame, La familia Mata, once again with Pepe Ruiz. Her signing in that series of Antena 3 with an exclusive contract, however, did not sit well with Telecinco. Moreno came to interpose at the time a lawsuit against the two actors for abandoning their job in Escenas de matrimonia,without giving the 15 days of notice stipulated by law. The demand for breach of contract" was dismissed, although the Antena series never triumphed and ended up returning to Telecinco.
