With this musical group, Francis participated in the movie Noches de Cabaret[?], with legendary actress Sasha Montenegro[?]. From there on, Francis went on to get small roles at Televisa's Spanish soap operas. One of his/her first roles in a soap opera was that of a transvestite who was attempting to gain his mother's acceptance. This was viewed by many as a social message towards acceptance of homosexualism in Mexico. From there on, he/she started getting more and more prominent roles at other soap operas.

Francis has continued working in theater too, and is currently on a tour that has taken him/her to various locations accross Mexico and in the United States.
