Silvia Pinal’s daughter died in a car accident while leaving the house of her partner, who died today

On October 25, 1982, the Pinal family suffered one of the hardest blows in its history. A car accident took the life of Viridiana Alatriste, the daughter that the last diva of the Mexican Golden Cinema procreated with producer Gustavo Alatriste and who was named in honor of the film by the Spanish director Luis Buñuel in which they both worked.

But her untimely death, at just 19 years old, not only marked the end of a promising career in show business and immense pain for her mother, but it also rocked the life of actor Jaime Garza, who at the time of the accident was her partner and who kept her present in her memory until her last years.

The love between Jaime, who was shaping up to be a television heartthrob in the eighties, and Viridiana arose when they were both working on the comic television show ¡Cachún Cachún Ra-Ra !, where Garza played “El pelos” and Alatriste to “Viri”.

The program that simulated a high school was conducive to the two starting a relationship, which soon turned into a youth romance: “ It was a dating romance, but it wasn’t that long, it wasn’t long, a little over a year, maybe. We didn’t get to live together or anything, ”Jaime recalled a couple of years ago in an interview with Ventaneando.
