When we asked Alonso how she got into the Argentina, 1985 project as a producer, she told us: "Through Axel Kuschevatzky, who had wanted to work with me for a long time, and when he told me he was doing this, he asked me if I wanted to be part of it. , and I had to ask for permission. Obviously, they gave it to me, and we did it."

"Complaints ranged from relentless overtime to chronic understaffing and an inability to avoid delivering substandard work due to constantly changing deadlines, but some noted that Alonso would blacklist artists who have pissed her off some way".

Three members of the MCU (The Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to its acronym in English) agreed that Alonso was just a supporting force on the set.

“She was the epitome of professional, and she knows what she's doing,” said a former Disney movie executive.
