See Her Tonight
Eiza Gonzalez in From Dusk Till Dawn
(9:00 PM EST, El Rey)
Eiza Gonzalez stars in a role originally played by Salma Hayek in tonight’s debut of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series–which means your See Her Tonight column is definitely seeking out the El Rey cable network. That’s the new slate of shows from schlock genius Robert Rodriguez, who directed the Machete movies and the original From Dusk Till Dawn. He certainly has an eye for sexy vampires, which is why he’s brought in this former Latina tween star. Eiza Gonzalez is 24 years old now, though, and eager to show the world (including lucky Americans) that she’s all grown up.
Lucky guys in Mexico got to watch Eiza grow up in their living rooms in a series of different telenovelas over the years. The actress made her big move to Los Angeles last year, but had to go to Austin, Texas to work with Rodriguez for what should be a star-making role. That’s because–as noted–she’s taking over for Salma Hayek in the role of vampire queen Santanico Pandemonium. Of course, this continues our obsession with many other fine vampy ladies–including Olga Fonda, Janina Gavankar, MyAnna Buring, Olga Kurylenko, Cherilyn Wilson, Cassidy Freeman, and Shiva Negar. (We’ll also note that the show will at some point have an appearance by Wilmer Valderrama, who we salute for other reasons.)
Anyway, any guy who remembers that character will be tuning in tonight–and will want to follow Eiza on Twitter, too. But you should probably warm up to Eiza right now, because these pics can keep you up all night..
