Previously we had presented you with a first part of the Latin actors and actresses that you can see on Netflix. Regardless of whether your preference is movies over series, or vice versa, the number of productions on this platform is full of talented and renowned artists who were fortunate enough to be born in Latin America . Although many of them already have a long history on US soil, it should be noted that the streaming giant is producing much more original content in our lands.
Without further ado, we leave you a second list with 10 other Spanish-speaking celebrities that you will find in the Netflix catalogs.
The Puerto Rican is the longest-running actress on this list. Suffice it to say that her career has spanned more than 70 years, not to mention that she has won Oscars, Emmy, Grammy and Tony awards. She is currently one of the protagonists of the acclaimed reboot of the 1975 series One Day at a Time , which you can see on Netflix since 2017. There, Rita plays the role of Lydia Riera, mother of the protagonist and who had to emigrate to the The United States fleeing the Cuban regime.
The Chilean is another of the players that has been growing exponentially in the industry . Although he had several appearances in TV series before rising to fame for his character of Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones , Pedro has received great opportunities on the big screen with films such as The Great Wall or Kingsman: The Golden Circle , and soon in Wonder Woman 1984 . However, it should be noted that his role in Narcos (2015-2017), as DEA agent Javier Peña, consolidated him as one of the Latino actors in the United States.
Born on American soil but to Colombian parents, Diane had a difficult adolescence, as her parents were deported to Colombia when she was just 14 years old. Without that close support and being welcomed by other families of the same nationality, this actress has managed to create her own destiny. Her acting career began in 2011 and since then she has remained a young prodigy. On Netflix you can see her as Maritza Ramos in the popular series Orange is the New Black .
Luis Gerardo Mendez
If there is something interesting about this Mexican actor, it is that he participated in the first Netflix series produced in Latin America: Club de Cuervos . This comedy about power struggles for control of a soccer team features the character of Salvador "Chava" Iglesias, played by Luis Gerardo. The series has a total of 4 seasons that are, without a doubt, unmissable. As if that were not enough, you can also see him in the movie Murder Mystery , released on the platform in 2019 and starring Adam Sandler.
This case is similar to the previous one, since the first original production of the streaming platform that took place in Brazil was 3% , with this actress as one of its main and most prominent characters. The series takes place in a dystopian future, in which 97% of Brazil's population lives in poverty, while 3% enjoys affluence. If you are a fan of the Hunger Games movie saga you will surely love this one, why not give it a try?
Although he was born in Argentina and raised in Mexico, "Nacho" has a long history as a supporting actor in many American television series. We can also mention that his role as Don West in Lost in Space has put him in the spotlight of this Netflix production. With only two seasons, at the moment, Ignacio gives life to a space worker who ends up joining the Robinson family on their adventures aboard the Jupiter 2 spacecraft.
Ana Maria Estupiñán
If there is something that Colombia has given the world, it is its magnificent productions. La Niña is one of those and Netflix is delighted to have it in their catalog, as its acceptance has been greater than expected. In it, Ana María plays a girl who as a child was recruited by the Colombian guerrilla and later, as an adult, decides to leave this dangerous life to study medicine. This role allowed her to win the award for Best Leading Actress in a Telenovela or Series at the India Catalina Awards at the Cartagena Film Festival.

This obsessed cop will go to extremes to catch the biggest corrupt politicians in the country's history. Do not miss it!
If we speak of legends of Mexican television, Verónica Castro cannot be absent. Although her beginnings were in the late sixties, it was not until 1979 that she rose to continental fame with her participation in the telenovela Los Ricos también Lloran. Her resume is as big as her talent, and that allowed her to come to Netflix with La Casa de las Flores , where she plays Virginia, the matriarch of a seemingly perfect family.
Juan Pablo Raba
The beginnings of this Colombian actor are in the successful Colombian and Venezuelan telenovelas in the late nineties. Little by little, he made his way to continental stardom, something that earned him the opportunity to participate in the renowned series Marvel's Agents of SHIELD in 2015. Then, he arrived on Netflix with his character as Gustavo Gaviria in Narcos (2015-2016 ). To this we can also add Distrito Salvaje (2018-2019), the first Colombian series for the streaming platform where Raba plays a revolutionary who moves from the jungle to Bogotá after the signing of the Peace Treaty.
