Television Itziar Castro's controversial time in Operación Triunfo: "Noemí Galera was not present when they fired me, she sent me a WhatsApp"

It was a television bombshell that continued to have consequences more than a year later. In November 2018, just a few weeks after the new edition of Operación Triunfo premiered, which was then broadcast on TVE's La 1, the news broke at the academy: Itziar Castro had been fired.

The actress, who died this Friday while rehearsing in a swimming pool in Lloret de Mar, had joined OT 2018 as an acting teacher, replacing Javier Ambrossi and Javier Calvo, who would return to take her place after her dismissal.

"The decision that Itziar Castro will not continue as a teacher has been taken unilaterally by the program's management and communicated hastily and without Itziar Castro expecting it," the actress stated in a harsh statement upon learning of the dismissal, before to emphasize that he had left other "professional commitments" to dedicate himself "fully" to the program, and to deny that he has other commitments "as has been suggested in various media": "This is not the reason why he is leaving the program."

The talent, for its part, alleged that Itziar Castro had not achieved "the expected objectives in his area", after multiple complaints from the director of the academy, Noemí Galera, about the lack of emotionality of the contestants in that edition.

Noemí Galera herself was the target of Itziar Castro's criticism a year later, when she opened up to her friend Risto Mejide at Chester. "The only thing I felt bad about was that neither she nor Tinet Rubira [producer of Operación Triunfo] were present at the dismissal. It felt bad to me. Only people from the production company were there and those two were the ones who bet on me "Castro told Risto, who empathized after having also been fired from talent. Apparently, according to his version, "there was later a WhatsApp message from Noemí Galera. She told me that she didn't know how things had gone."

That same year, Itziar Castro became an express collaborator on another Risto Mejide program, Todo es Mentira, but disappeared from the screen a month later. Her explanation: her contract had expired.

In Itziar Castro's television career there is one title that stands out: Vis a vis, where she played Goya Fernández, one of the most violent inmates in the Cruz del Norte prison, feared for her physical strength and who sexually abused the most violent inmates. recently arrived young people.
