Pedro Castañeda films scene in Laredo

At the Empty Bowls concert, I ran into Blas Castañeda and his nephew, actor Pedro Castañeda. He was in town because as he puts it, he was “shooting a bridge scene” for an upcoming movie about immigration. Because he was filming that night, he did not want to state which bridge and wanted me to wait on posting.

He plays the role of Jaime and the title of the film for now is… something something Nopalitos. Sorry, maybe you can make out the name of the movie, it was too loud for me to make it out. I will ask Blas and clarify it later.

Of course, we can’t forget that I spotted him at the South Texas Food Bank’s Empty Bowls concert featuring Three Dog Night. This year instead of volunteering on the floor with the bowls, I volunteered outside with my future bookstore friend, Mary. In case you didn’t see some of the beautiful bowls up for auction, check out a few:

    Uh, it’s a NAME. It has evolved in the last few years. In the same way that I am not really called Que Fregada.
