"Marisol" is a Mexican telenovela, produced by Juan Osorio Ortiz for Televisa. It's a remake based on a 1977 Televisa telenovela 'Marcha nupcial'. The show aired from January 22 to August 9, 1996 and it consists of 145 episodes. The main stars are Erika Buenfil and Eduardo Santamarina.
Marisol has a pain-ridden life. She has a disfiguring scar on her face from a piece of a broken mirror she had fallen on when she was a little girl. Her mother is dying and Marisol must sell paper flowers to make money in order to support herself and her mother. Sofia, Marisol’s mother, is carrying a heavy secret and she realizes she must tell Marisol the truth before she dies and leaves her alone (especially with Marisol’s sleazy boyfriend Mario around).
Unfortunately, Sofia dies without revealing that Marisol is really the granddaughter of Don Alonso Garcés del Valle, the patriarch of a very rich family, which includes the handsome and amicable painter, José Andrés, also one of Alonso’s grandchildren.
To complicate matters, José Andrés and Marisol fall in love with each other (even though they are engaged to other people), both completely in the dark about their true identities.
- Erika Buenfil and Eduardo Santamarina were both nominated for their roles in 1997 TVyNovelas Awards, however they didn't win any awards.
- Final telenovela for actor Enrique Álvarez Félix who passed away from a heart attack on May 24, 1996. He passed away two days after he finished filming his participation in the telenovela. His character's death was already planned in the script and actor Eduardo Santamarina, who played his son on the show, delivered a touching, in-character tribute to him in the final episode.
- 'Marisol' is also the last telenovela of young actress Paulina Lazareno who played Alejandra, Marisol's cousin. Almost a year after the show ended, she was killed in a tragic car accident. She was only 19.
- Final telenovela for actress Emma Laura who played José Andrés's evil and scheming fiance Rosana. After this role, Emma abandoned acting and moved from Mexico City to the United States of America.
