The Netflix Murder Mystery Who Killed Sara? has been a huge hit for the streaming platform since it was first launched in late March. This Mexican drama follows the Lazacanos, a criminal family involved in trafficking and sexual murder, who may be responsible for the death of Sara Guzmán. He has it all: betrayal, murder, infidelity, and forbidden love. No wonder fans can’t stay away. With each season revealing more questions than answers, no one should be surprised if the third season is underway, with the goal of answering all of those questions. After all, the second season was announced just five days after the premiere of the first season. And, with Who Killed Sara? becoming the most successful English-language Netflix series in the United States, it would make a lot of sense for this Netflix soap opera to exist for a long time.
A little surprise about Who Killed Sara? it is not the outrageous traps or the unexpected plot twists, but rather the success of this program that has little or no big name. And while a show doesn’t necessarily need Hollywood’s best-known actors to be successful, it certainly doesn’t hurt to have a favorite or two favorites on a new TV series.
Alex Guzmán, Sara’s brother, who is taking revenge against the Lazacons for murdering his sister, is played by Manolo Cardona. And unless you’ve seen a lot of Mexican dramas or seen his little stage on the Narcos TV show about drug crimes, you wouldn’t recognize him right away. But his capacity for recognition (or lack thereof) has no bearing on his portrayal of angry, frustrated, and mourning Alex. As Variety’s Monica Marie Zorrilla noted, “This is the first time Cardona has entered the global stage, front and center, in a series that millions are watching.” And, despite his inexperience, his performance is powerful enough to attract fans and present an engaging and revolving murder mystery.

Manolo Cardona-Alex Guzmán
Cardona plays Alex Guzmán on the show. And, let’s face it, he plays Alex well. Despite having only a few acting credentials – Narcos and The Snitch Cartel – it surprises fans with its heartbreaking scenes in Who Killed Sara ?.
Alejandro Nones-Rodoflo Lazcano
Venezuelan actor Alejandro Nones plays Rodolfo, Lazcano and Sara’s ex-boyfriend, who appears to have murdered her (at least in the early episodes). A well-known model, Nones has appeared in some Mexican soap operas with Who Killed Sara? being its most important role to date.
Carolina Miranda-Elisa Lazcano
Perhaps the best known performer of Who Killed Sara ?, Carolina Miranda is a Mexican actress known for her work in soap operas and soap operas. Although somewhat unknown on the American Hollywood scene, Miranda has acted in numerous plays, reality TV shows, web series, and screenplays for Mexican audiences. She has even won awards for Best Actress at the Los Mexico’s Awards and Produ Awards for Best New Actress. She plays Elisa Lazacono, the youngest child and Alex’s love interest.
Ximena Lamadrid-Sara Guzmán
A graduate of the Tisch School of the Artist at New York University, Ximena Lamadrid is a new and upcoming actress. It portrays Sara, the mentally unstable missing teenager who harbors a lot of secrets. Lamadrid, although new to the acting scene, has managed to blow up fans with her poker faces and quiet but sonorous expressions. According to IMDb, he has some upcoming projects.
Eugenio Siller-José María “Chema” Lazcano
Eugenio Siller portrays Chema Lazcano, the half-dishonored child in a same-sex relationship. Siller first began acting in commercials and musicals until he found success playing a blind man in a Mexican soap opera. Since then, he has built a versatile career playing challenging characters, modeling and even starting a singing career.
Similar to her other co-stars, Fatima Molina is also somewhat unknown in the American acting scene. It has some interpretative papers in Mexican dramas like Diablero or the Do6na. In Who Killed Sara ?, he stars Clara, Chema’s surrogate and Marifer’s little sister.
Ginés García Millán-César Lazcano
The manipulator and vengeful César Lazcanois is played by Spanish actor Ginés García Millán. Millán’s performance as the patriarch of Lazacnos is so powerful that he sometimes forgets that he even acts. Producer and actor, Millán has equal theater and film experiences.
Claudia Ramírez-Mariana Lazcano
Claudia Ramírez plays the cunning and cunning Mariana Lazcano, the matriarch of this criminal family and mother of Chema, Rodolfo and Elisa. Ramirez’s performance as innocent and gentle Mariana is so compelling that fans initially assume that Caesar is the villain of the show until later episodes reveal Mariana as the real mind. Throughout his 20-year career, Ramirez has appeared in numerous films and television shows, including Streeters and The Idol.
Juan Carlos Remolina-Sergio Hernández
What better man to play the sadist Sergio Hernández, César’s right-hand man, than a Mexican actor with more than thirty years in the business? Juan Carlos Remolina plays Sergio and he does it well. No wonder this actor has a few awards, including an Emmy.
You may recognize Héctor Jiménez from the 2006 comedy film Nacho Libre. But his days of playing wrestlers are over. In Who Killed Sara ?, Jiménez stars Elroy, Mariana’s adopted and faithful follower. In addition to starring in this Netflix drama, you can find Jiménez producing movies or acting like a theater clown.
Litzy – Marifer
Litzy surprised us all with her mentally unstable and grieving portrayal of Mafier, who was Sara’s best friend and Clara’s sister. Who would have expected Marifer to have “killed” Sara? Surely they don’t, as Litzy’s performance on Marifer was so compelling: no one expected it to be a murder. If you want to see more of Litzy’s roles, you can find her at Quiéreme Tonto or Al Otro Lado del Muro.
Luis Roberto Guzmán-Lorenzo Rossi
Luis Roberto Guzmán plays Lorenzo, Chema’s long-term partner, a lawyer. Most of Guzmán’s work consists of Mexican soap operas, including The Panther.
Ana Lucía Domínguez-Sofia
This actress got her biggest break playing Sofia, Rodoflos’ estranged wife and Bruno’s mother. Although his role is limited to the series, Domínguez managed to make fans fall in love with the skillful thinking of his character and his will.
Bruno, Sofia’s son and Rodoflo’s stepson, is portrayed by Iñaki Godoy, an actor with limited experience. Like her mother on screen, Who Killed Sara? it is Godoy’s greatest rupture. But even though he has just arrived on the acting scene, his inexperience has no influence on the way he portrayed the confused and sad Bruno.
