Who Killed Sara?’s Alejandro Nones
By Rafael Blanco

***Eccho Rights***The Netflix thriller Who Killed Sara? follows the story of Álex Guzmán, who, after being wrongfully imprisoned for 18 years for the death of his sister, will once again be part of the powerful Lazcano family, looking to erase his past, take revenge and reveal the secrets of who killed Sara. The mystery drama series, which reached 55 million subscribers in its first season, returned to Netflix for a second installment in May. Alejandro Nones plays Rodolfo Lazcano, heir to the general management of the Lazcano casino and thought to be the person responsible for the death for which Guzmán was sentenced. Nones talks with TV Drama Weekly about the complexities of his character in the show and what drew him to the role. He also speaks to the professional challenges he faced during the last year amid Covid-19 and future projects.

***Imagen***TV DRAMA: What attracted you to the role of Rodolfo Lazcano, and what is the appeal of the story for global audiences?
NONES: I was drawn from the very beginning to Rodolfo Lazcano’s intensity and depth. He’s a complex character who presents an interesting evolution within the story, which also changes constantly. I appreciate that as an actor.

In regard to the appeal for global audiences, it’s a great story within the thriller and suspense genre. It surely manages to capture the public’s attention. The viewer is constantly trying to discover and understand who killed Sara. I think that’s universal.

TV DRAMA: You’ve worked in theater, film and television. Do you prefer one over the other?
NONES: I don’t have a preference. Theater, film and television all have their charm; each one is wonderful in a different way. I love and enjoy them all. Regarding which one offers more opportunity for developing creativity, I think creativity is within you. It has to do with a constant search that deals with the development of the character. The capacity for being creative depends more on you than from where you’re telling the story.
