Betty Monroe surprised everyone when she opted to shave her head for "Sueño De Amor" as her character Esperanza has cancer. In the Univision telenovela, another character will show their solidarity to Esperanza. Julián Gil, who plays Esperanza's former flame, will also do away with his hair. See images of both Monroe and Gil sporting their new looks below!

Producer Juan Osorio is pleased with Betty Monroe's participation in the drama series. "If I had to select my lead actress again, I would choose her," he said in an interview with Notimex. "She is a great human being, very professional and above all, she has demonstrated respect and passion for her acting career. Her character needed to lose her hair. We started making preparations to characterized her, but she decided [to shave], I was very fortunate of having a protagonist that is not afraid of what people will say, and gives in to her character."

Betty Monroe's hair will be donated to a child with cancer. "They will be making a wig and we will gift it with all our love in the world," she said. "At the end I told Juan Osorio, he gave me the opportunity to star in a telenovela after 20 years of working and I think my character was worth it, the production is worth it and the story."

Betty Monroe is not the only one that will loose her hair. In solidarity with Esperanza, Julian Gil's character will also shave off his head. You can watch spoiler videos below! Tell us what you think of the dramatic changes.
