I met Sebastián Ligarde almost 24 years ago; he was the terrible "Memo" of the telenovela "Quinceañera". So good actor, that I really was afraid to approach, because I thought that the villain of the soap opera had to do with the human being, but no, quite the opposite. If you have to ponder something, amen of the undisputed talent of this actor, is his ability to be a friend, his cordiality, his dedication, his humanism. Since then we became great friends. So, I can say that from my many years as a journalist in the middle of the show, I can tell friends with my fingers, and Sebastian (for the friends, Gerardo) is one of them. Today, at a distance, the admiration for him grows because, not only in the acting, but also in his infinite capacity to love and surrender to friendship, and for his love for a profession that he defends at all costs: the career of actor in whom, at the time, he has become a teacher, literally. An infinite hug to my great friend of so many years and so many adventures from this trench of journalism. Víctor Hugo Sánchez

There are two types of actors, those who should be working in a supermarket and then those who are like Sebastián Ligarde. What I most enjoyed working with Sebastian was to challenge him daily. Every time he challenged him in an interpretation he succeeded, then challenged him more and succeeded again. It is true that the directors can teach the actors a lot, but suddenly you find an actor like Sebastian who teaches the directors. María Eugenia Perera He directed Sebastian in: "Olvidarte Jamás". "Mi Vida eres Tu". "Acorralada".
There are several types of actors, but Sebastian belongs to what I consider the best group of all. It always arrives with several proposals for each scene, for each character. However, he always knows how to listen to my proposal and always accepts my decision as a stage director and does not discuss the subject again. Sergio Jiménez Creator of talents, actor, director. "The teacher" He directed Sebastian in: "I live by Elena" and "Salome".
When I met you at the home of Jeancarlos Canela, I never imagined that you would mark a before and after in my life. Until that moment you were just the great villain and a tremendous actor. Six months later, you, your workshop and your much-studied "manuscript" have become an essential part of my life. I have no words to describe how much I have learned, not only in the application of your teachings for our "show business", but for my life itself. You are simply spectacular. You are a dedicated man, passionate as an actor, as a teacher and as a human being. Each class you add the most important ingredient of all, love. This without mentioning a fundamental part of each class, your delicious "Mexican sauces" at the time of the break.
The acting technique that Sebastián Ligarde taught me has been key in my development as an actress. In addition, he is an admirable person for the dedication and dedication to his career, and to his courses. Thanks for all your teachings. I love you, Yeyo.

Three years ago my brother Jean Carlos asked me to accompany him to his acting class. When he told me that the class lasted 4 hours, I told him I was crazy and that I would never take a class like that. However, I accompanied him, and as I passed the time and listened to Sebastián Ligarde, I realized that those 4 hours were the beginning of what would be the rest of my life. I fall short to say that I fell in love with the art of acting. Since then I have been a student of Sebastián Ligarde, whom I consider to be simply the best teacher I have ever had in my life. When he teaches his classes, the students perceive the love and passion Sebastian feels. He does not teach by occupation. He teaches out of necessity, because he loves his profession. It is a gesture of enormous generosity that he shares what he learned throughout his successful career. Others would have retired to their homes and kept their experiences in a drawer. As the teacher says: "If you want to act, then do it, You are your only limitation." Star Debut: Donde Esta Elisa? (Telemundo, 2010).
Being in a Sebastian workshop is immersing yourself in a high level of acting learning and a deep analysis of the character. Sebastián Ligarde taught me how to handle a very important technique for TV that is acting minimalism. Sebastian taught me that an actor should be responsible, punctual, disciplined and dedicated to his career and character.
