Part of what makes FX’s Mayans M.C. so special is the amount of balanced attention that they are able to give to each of the characters. Of course, there are going to be some characters that just by the nature of the show are going to get more time. But that does not mean that we are going to lose track of anyone Carla Baratta’s Adelita has been amazing ever since her debut in the first season of the series.
We got to know her as the leader of Los Olvidados in Mayans M.C. But like many characters in this series, her journey is not linear. Now in season four, we find her alone and in search of the one thing that matters most in her life, her baby. It will be yet another way for showrunner, co-creator, and writer of the series, Elgin James, to peel back another layer of the character so that fans can have more ways to relate to her and be more invested. It will be interesting to see what more about Adelita we are going to learn this season.
But as we wait for those moments to develop in this season of Mayans M.C., LRM Online‘s Emmanuel Gomez spoke with Carla Baratta about her role. She shares with us her feelings on her transformation from Carla to Adelita when she puts on her signature neck tattoo. As well as some of the things that she takes away from her character and applies to her personal life. Baratta also shares her thoughts on the evolution of her character and how well she has worked with Elgin James. It was a fantastic conversation that you can check out down below!
Here is the synopsis for season four of Mayans M.C. on FX
Mayans M.C. follows the life of Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes, a member of the Mayans M.C. charter on the Cali/Mexi border. EZ, his brother Angel and the rest of the Santo Padre M.C. face retaliation from other charters after a failed attempt to align under one King. Meanwhile, EZ and Angel have grown distant from their father Felipe (Edward James Olmos) after a heart-wrenching betrayal.
You can check out Mayans M.C. on Tuesday nights on FX and the next day on Hulu.
