The actor Rafael Álvarez, The Witcher, was one of the guests this Saturday on the set of the Sixth Night, where he spoke about some current issues such as the coronavirus pandemic, reviewed his long artistic career and told the odd anecdote.

During his interview, the actor’s words have provoked spontaneous laughter of his interviewer, Iñaki López, especially when referring to the director of the Center for the Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies, Fernando Simon, to whom he dedicates a part of his show The soul of Valle Inclán.

“In this work by Valle Inclán you talked a lot about what you have experienced during the pandemic, you even used a term, the ‘simonitis’“Iñaki López explained to the actor. “Severe Acute Simonitis”, El Brujo pointed out.

The program has then shown the part of the play in which Simón speaks: “I had a horrible season in March of last year, a nightmare, I caught severe acute simonitis. Simonitis, from Dr. Simón de Alertas y Emergencias, I caught a hitch with Simon“, says the actor in his speech on stage.

Have you disengaged with Simon?“López asked Álvarez.” With Valle Inclán, “the actor replied.” It is true that he was always aware of the data, the incidence, whether it went up, if it went down, he made calculations … ” recognized.

For Rafael Álvarez, “Dr. Simón has one thing, that it calmed you down because it didn’t tell you anything“The comment then caused the presenter to laugh, while the actor continued explaining with a football simile.

“Have you seen when the soccer players come out, who ask them at the end of the game how the game went? And they say, well, in the first half we pressed, we scored a goal; in the second half they pressed, they scored another and we have tied, which is what you have seen. Well, Dr. Simón explained the same“, has compared.

Today we are a little better than yesterday, but we are going to see if we can be better than tomorrow, but things are not very good, but you have to take care of yourself, but you have to be careful, we’ll see, “added Álvarez on Fernando Simón’s way of communicating.

In his opinion, it was “the creativity” which allowed him to “unhook” from the director of the CCAES. “Focusing your mind on something that you find attractive, creative, something interesting … All this makes your mind rise and you blur that permanent and persistent feeling of fear.”

“The theme here is fear. Now any doctor talks on TV and scares you“Rafael Álvarez commented.” Now that it seems that we are getting out of this, it is the delta variant, and then it will be the kite … it seems that this is never going to end, “he added.

According to the actor, “you have to live without so much fear”, but always “taking the necessary precautions. But constantly living in fear is toxic and it is going to ruin society, “he concluded.
