During the conversation, Inclán noted with a smile that “administrative things are not discussed” and refused to reveal whether he was among Televisa's exclusive artists. He also admitted that although he is in good health, he still suffers from some ailments.

“Since I never took much care of myself, here I am. The last surgical procedure for the femoral prosthesis was not very strong because I went to work early, but here we go,” he commented.

The actor, who confessed that he hopes not to need another surgery to treat his mobility issues, reflected on the past few years and stressed that he does not regret every step he has taken in his career.

“As you get older, your vitality decreases, you have to put your brain into everything. Those who change do so because they regret the way they were, and I don't. “Life takes its toll, whether you behave well or badly, there is no way,” he explained.

Finally, the first actor flatly denied that he intended to publish his biography and memoirs, drawing on his extensive artistic career, since this would include other colleagues and he did not want this.

“I am in no position to throw away my colleagues, especially those who have already left,” he replied. “I don't feel the need, why?” he said.
