Kamalich first became interested in acting as a young woman when Braulio Castillo, the Puerto Rican actor, went to work in Peru. Kamalich admitted to El Vocero, a newspaper in Puerto Rico, that she had platonic feelings for Castillo. The two would later maintain a lifelong friendship. Looking for better job opportunities, Kamalich moved to Mexico in 1970, where she had participated in three stage productions, and, more importantly, in Panamericana''s 1969 version of the well-known telenovela (Spanish soap operas), Simplemente Maria. The Peruvian version, was the fourth filmed of Simplemente Maria, which had already been a hit in Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela.
