Netflix held an FYC event last night in Hollywood celebrating Narcos. Cast members, including stars Wagner Moura (Pablo Escobar) and Boyd Holbrook (Steve Murphy), were in attendance. Producer/directorJose Padilha, executive producer/director Eric Newman, and Moura were on the Q&A panel following the screening.
Narcos takes on the Medellin cartel in Columbia, charting the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar. Moura who played the infamous druglord revealed he didn’t speak Spanish before taking on the role. Director and Producer José Padilha said, “Three months before we even scouted Colombia, he went to Medellin on his own, enlisted into a university where Pablo Escobar went and stayed there speaking Spanish for three months. When we got there, he knew how to speak Spanish, that’s what it takes.”
