Carlos Alfredo Jr. Talks Performing As A Keyboardist In Selena: The Series [Exclusive Interview]

Selena: The Series

Today Netflix has released the first part of Selena: The Series. Over and over we have talked about the importance of Selena Quintanilla’s life to the Latin community. One of the things that the series focuses on is the importance of family in Selena’s life. Selena Y Los Dinos was all about family. The benefit of telling the story of Selena’s life in a series is that you can take your time showcasing some of the other members of her family. Even those that weren’t blood-related. At the end of her journey, each and every member of the band had their part in her success.

Here is the synopsis for Selena: The Series:

Before she became the Queen of Tejano Music, Selena Quintanilla was a young girl from Texas with big dreams and an even bigger voice. The two-part coming-of-age drama Selena: The Series explores the once-in-a-generation performer’s journey as a young artist, from singing small gigs in Corpus Christi with her family to becoming one of the most successful Latin artists of all time — and the years of grit and sacrifice the Quintanilla family navigated together before Selena’s meteoric rise to fame.


With the release of Selena: The Series, LRM Online had the opportunity to talk with actor Carlos Alfredo Jr. He plays the role of Joe Ojeda, a keyboardist in the series. During our conversation, we talk about the family feel that was developed by the cast while filming the series. He opens up and talks about his preparation for the role, which included getting to know the real Joe Ojeda. Carlos also shares an emotional moment that he had during one particular scene that spoke volumes about the amazing job that Christian Serratos did portraying the role of Selena. Be sure to check out the interview as well as checking out the series on Netflix!

Selena: The Series can be streamed now on Netflix.
