WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Narcos: Mexico
Narcos: Mexico tells about the birth of drug cartels in Mexico in the 1980s. This is told by the growth of drug lords Felix Gallardo and DEA officials who tried to bring him down.
The second season of the show aired on Netflix in February and continued the Gallardo story in the late 1980s. As viewers will know, the man known as El Padrino lost his fascination with his drug cartels. The audience also watched him try to win his wife Maria Elvira back and reunite with her children.
He finally succeeded with great persistence and moved again with his family. However, all of this falls apart when his involvement in the death of Guadalupe Leia Serrano (Viviana Serna) is revealed and Maria is thrown out of the house. After watching the show, some fans wanted to know whether Maria was based on real women or not.
Very little is known about them, which means that much of their portrayal in this series is fiction. However, according to the Capitalcoahuila website, she is Gallardo’s second wife after her first death due to leukemia.
The website reports that, according to the Jalisco Public Property Register, it is one of the owners of Delia Real Estate. Company assets were confiscated by the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) after Gallardo was arrested in 1989. In 2011, the Washington Post reported that Gallardo’s wife and children had written an appeal letter to the Secretary of State for Public Security, Genaro García Luna.
He said he didn’t get the medicine he needed and was locked up. He then accepted an application to move to a medium-security prison in Guadalajara to serve his sentence because his health had deteriorated. In the first and second series, Maria is played by Chilean actor Fernanda Uregola.
The 38-year-old star is known for appearing on Spanish TV shows and films. These include appearances in the Telenovela Corazón de María and the TV series Karma.
He will then appear in the upcoming Hulu series called Party of Five, based on the 1994 show of the same name. Uregola will play Gloria in the upcoming teen drama which will be released in 2020.
Narcos: Mexico can now be streamed on Netflix.
