“I would love that readers enjoyed the adventures of Miranda and Tato and that they were aware that we are all actors of change if we want to have a more sustainable and just world. Before when we launched Miranda, little was said about feminism because the term was a little misunderstood. Luckily, time has passed and it seems something more common. “

Now they have hit the market If you want to help me, leave me alone Y Boy, what are you doing with my shirt?. In October saldrn of the books ms and, in March, another two in which Itziar Miranda, Jorge Miranda and Nacho Rubio are currently working.

Proof that Itziar Miranda likes to speak openly, her way of explaining what the collection is about is very direct. “Life is full of taboos that, in the end, all they do is that we are not committed to anything. On Miranda and Tatothere is talk without euphemisms of MENAS, of energy poverty or even arranged marriages with minors. While politicians look for ways to talk about things and hook up with each other, the rest of us have to do something. No one should be left behind. I hope those who read Miranda and Tato and their families be actors of change without having to wait for what the politicians do. “

I had no idea what terms like mi crush, bro, epic fail… and other people like the daughter of my friend Laia Portaceli have helped me a lot. It may be funny, but listening to him speak is how best I have managed to understand his language (laughs). Y I think we got it right. At least that’s what the kids tell me … “.

In the series Love is forever (and, before, in Love in troubled times), Itziar has had almost everything, including pregnancies. “They had to ‘get pregnant’ my character to take advantage of those of my two daughters. The day I went into labor I left four sequences without recording …”, he adds with a laugh.
