Fernanda Castillo is returning to Telemundo's primetime with "Enemigo Íntimo" playing the character of Roxana Rodiles. The character is described as a beautiful young woman who has managed to develop a range of characteristics: skillful, with an intelligence that can border on brilliance, impetuous at times and in others, achieving a single cause that allows her to overcome the problems and conflicts she faces. Seemingly naïve but really quite sure of herself, supposedly weak but in fact strong, she is enigmatic, passionate, and intelligent, with a past that no one is able to decipher.  This ambiguity allows Roxana to conceal the whole truth about herself and leads others to make many assumptions, all of them wrong. Watch a preview of the series below and tell us what you think!

"Enemigo Íntimo" is the first project for Castillo following the death of Mónica Robles on "El Señor de los Cielos" Season 5 finale. "Five years ago I did a casting for a character that changed my career and life," she wrote after the death of her character in the Season 5 finale of the series. "Today I bid farewell to Mónica Robles with all the love and gratefulness that exist in my soul. Having to say goodbye has been one of the most sad processes I've lived through, but today I decide to stay with all the great things she gave me."

Mónica Robles was described as a beautiful, strong-willed woman like Ximena (Aurelio's wife), Mónica is born into the world of the cartels, but unlike her, she joins this world once she leaves college.  She and her two brothers run the business their father left them. Mónica is the brains of the operations and takes over the finances after her brother Isidro dies.  She is comfortable around weapons and doesn’t hesitate to use them when she has to.  Ruled by her passions, she is capable of killing anyone who gets in her way.  Her only weakness is Aurelio, and she reappears in his life to help him regain his drug trafficking operation. Theirs is a fruitful relationship, but one that won’t last very long.

Season 5 of "El Señor de los Cielos" has Aurelio Casillas retreating from the action and the business to live his relationship with Emiliana Contreras, his latest lover - in a ranch near the mountains, known as the Golden Triangle, between the states of Sonora, Sinaloa and Durango - apparently enjoying now that authorities believe him dead. But deep inside, he is preparing because he knows he’ll have to start a war that was put on hold, with Victor, his nephew. And he knows one of them will not come out alive. It will be a war to death that will shed a lot of blood, not from outsiders, but from his own family.

Monica was seriously wounded on her wedding day and awakens from a coma that kept her on the brink of death for a long time. Meanwhile, Alba is in danger when the convent where she has been hiding for a long time is attacked, so she goes to her son for help to save her life and the lives of the nuns who are at risk of being raped and murdered.

Victor, oblivious to everything that has happened to Monica and the rest of his family, has gone mad unable to find his wife. He is consumed by rage and resentment and that has Mexico immersed in a world of horror and chaos. The Maras Salvatruchas and other organizations under his command, have devoted to drug trafficking, kidnapping, piracy and human trafficking, leading the government to declare a state of emergency. His loyal collaborator, Superjavi, has decided to step back and operate from Colombia, as he knows things will not end well if he stays next to Victor, and he seeks an alliance with Aurelio.
