One of the main characters for “The Guy of 8” is “Don Ramón” played by Ramón Valdés, remembered for various publications in which his fans remember his acting work, because let’s remember that the stage performer comes from a family with an outstanding artistic heritage, since his brothers are German Valdes, better known as “Tin Tan” and Manuel “El Loco” Valdés, who like him found success in the world of acting.

His interpretative level was such that he seemed to be getting into his DNAsince he had a great ability to interpret all kinds of characters, from the seemingly simplest and most realistic to roles completely taken out of context in relation to him as a person.

This is precisely the case of a time when the actor had to bring a character from the LGBT+ community to life, a comedy tape adapted from a TV show with the title “The Beverlys of Peralvillo”, who worked in Mexico between 1969 and 1973 with actors such as Guillermo Rivas and Leonorilda Ochoa.

When this story was released the name of the production was replicated and in the film there is a scene where Ramón Valdés is seen bringing to life a gay character who is asking for public transportation. It is specifically a taxi driven by the actor William Rivas, better known as “El Borras” whom Don Ramón asks to move him to the pink zone.
