In an interview with CNN en Espanol, the Mexican-American actress Karla Souza revealed that early in her career she was sexually assaulted by a director whose name she did not disclose, on a one-month shoot in Mexico.
"He knocked at my door saying he wanted to go over some scenes and I thought it's 2 a.m., it's not appropriate and it's something that shouldn't be happening."
One night Souza decided not to open the door for him.
"The next day he decided not to shoot my scene and then he suddenly started to humiliate me in front of the others on the set. This was the psychological control that he held over me."
After a month of dealing with the director's total abuse of power.
"I ended up giving in to him [to let him] kiss me, to touch me in ways I did not want him to touch me and in one of those instances, he attacked me violently and yes, he raped me,"
