Some of Telemundo's biggest names graced the Queen of the South season two premiere party in Beverly Hills last week, including El Señor de los Cielos stars Rafael Amaya and Vanessa Villela. Beyond celebrating the premiere of USA Network's adaptation of Arturo Pérez-Reverte's bestselling novel La Reina Del Sur (also made into a hit Telemundo series by the same name), the international talent expressed the importance of having more Latinos in mainstream American television.
Queen of the South fans were treated to one of Telemundo's biggest stars in season one when El Señor de los Cielos' leading man Rafael Amaya appeared as his character Aurelio Casillas in a crossover moment during the Queen season finale.
