AfterEllen.com recently caught up with 23-year-old Spanish TV star Celia Freijeiro to discuss her lesbian web series, Chica Busca Chica (Girl Seeks Girl). (Read our review of the series here.)
In Chica Busca Chica, Freijeiro plays Nines, a smooth-talking lothario who can make any woman fall prey to her slyly seductive ways.
In our email interview, Freijeiro talks about the ongoing struggle of finding funding and a distributor for the lesbian TV series in Spain, the onscreen chemistry between her beautiful cast mates and a sneak peek of what to expect in the future for Chica Busca Chica (warning: lesbian pregnancy storyline likely).
AfterEllen.com: For those readers who haven’t yet watched Chica Busca Chica, how would you describe the series?
The creators decided to produce a comedy for all ages, which is why there’s no strong sexual content in the show. The series is fresh, shameless and fun, while still being sexy.
AE: What initially drew you to this project?
AE: What was your family’s reaction to you playing a lesbian? What do they think of Nines?
AE: Was playing Nines in Chica Busca Chica your first time playing a lesbian, and did you have initial inhibitions?

Nines is totally different – a modern lesbian, completely out of the closet, really sexually liberated and a heartbreaker. It’s true that, at the beginning, I had a lot of doubts about how to interpret the role and I had a lot of questions. But it ended up being the most fun!
