There is no doubt that Yalitza Aparicio is keeping the name of Mexico at the top, displaying the lightheartedness and grace that characterizes the people of Oaxaca around the world.

While on a tour to promote Alfonso Cuarón’s latest film Roma, the first-time actress dazzled audiences in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel yesterday.

In company of actress Mariana de Tavira, Aparicio answered several questions and told personal anecdotes in Spanish. When asked whether she had ever acted before her appearance in the movie, the preschool teacher answered: “If lying to my mom and teachers counts as acting, then yes,” causing audiences to burst out laughing.

When Kimmel asked both actresses if they would conduct the Academy Awards Gala, given that Roma is likely to be nominated for Best Foreign Film, Yalitza replied that she would be willing to do it, as long as she was allowed to speak Spanish, after which the audience stood up and cheered.
