Chiquis Rivera

March 25, 2014

Jenni Rivera's daughter Chiquis has been cast to play her late mother in an upcoming biopic, according to People.

This will mark the acting debut of the 28-year-old, who bares a close resemblance to her mother.

"It would be an honor to portray my mother in a movie," Chiquis told Univision. "But ... for me, whoever is fine, as long as it is done with a lot of love and respect for my mother."

Jenni, who topped the charts with her self-titled album in 2008, tragically passed away in a plane crash on December 9, 2012 at the age of 43.

Chiquis has reportedly been taking singing and acting lessons in preparation for the role.
