These Are the Most Memorable Telenovela Villanas of All Time
For a telenovela to work, it must have a lead character who is a dreamer, a love story, and a villain who impedes on everyone's happiness. The latter is especially important, because without conflict, the soap would end real fast. Telenovela villanas are essential characters in every story, and they've sometimes even overshadowed the protagonistas, turning them into cultural icons. Villains exist in a fantasy world where they can do whatever they want for 200 episodes with no consequences. The aftermath usually only comes in the last minutes of a telenovela, when the story is about to end. However, their journey is what fans love to watch on television. Not only are they evil, ambitious, and powerful, but they also always dress up for the occasion, showcasing some of the best looks in Latin TV history. These are some of the most legendary telenovela villains of all time!
