"It's a great story," assures Falcon to Latin Times of the show. "As every great story, it's filled with great characters. It's a story people would love to watch because of that," she said. The 49-year-old "El Señor de los Cielos" star said that the series touches many universal topics, such as love, hatred, revenge, power and corruption, but at the same time it has honor, loyalty, friendship and action.

With the "Queen of the South" premiere sneaking up on us, check out an exclusive scene provided to Latin Times where Camila is seen arguing over the future of family business with her husband Epifanio, portrayed by Portuguese actor Joaquim de Almeida. Check out their official character bios below.

Verónica Falcón is Camila Vargas, the wife of Don Epifanio. She emigrated from Mexico and re-established herself in Texas. She seems to be building a competing cartel to her husband’s and would love nothing more than to ruin Epifanio’s duplicitous game. When she first meets Teresa, Camila dismisses her as just another one of Guero’s girls out for money and drugs, but later Camila sees that the young woman’s drive, fearlessness and intelligence make Teresa a valuable player on her team…as long as she can keep her protégé from being captured or killed by Epifanio.

Joaquim De Almeida is Epifanioa wealthy, dashing man seems like the consummate Mexican politician and benevolent father figure to Teresa and Guero. Beneath his smooth veneer is the heart of a determined and ambitious man who will not let anything or anyone get in his way now that he has supposedly left the drug game -- at least publicly. Even Guero, who tells Teresa to go to Don Epifanio for help in the event that he is ever killed, misreads his benevolence. Once Teresa realizes she is in danger for her valuable knowledge she has on Epifanio and his organization, she flees to Texas and lands in the operation of Epifanio’s wife, Camila, who is building her own drug cartel to rival her husband’s business.
