For her role in Goya in Bordeaux. the well-known expressive power of her face was crucial. She plays Goya's last lover, Leocadia Zorrilla de Weiss, a generous and self-confident woman who looked after the painter until the end. After the death of Josefina Bayeu, the painter's first wife, Goya met Leocadia, and they stayed together. Some versions have it that he met her at the wedding of his son Javier to Gumersinda Goicoechea, to whose family Leocadia belonged. Other sources assure us that the relationship did not become close until a couple of years after Josefina Bayeu's death in 1802. Forty years Goya's junior, Leocadia was with the artist right up until his exile in Bordeaux. Rosarito is her daughter, but history does not reveal whether she was also the daughter of the artist.
