Background on the other cast members
Since its launch in 1997, Dark has generated praise from critics and fans alike. What many people might not know is how committed showrunner Barlow and his writing team are to casting strong talent for even background roles. The series boasts an A-list of actors, including Rutger Hauer (as patriarch Jacob), Anna Shaffer (Luna), Elisa Moolecherry (Cassandra) among others.
What kind of person is Darío’s mother?
Most people see Iris (Darío’s mother) as a cold-hearted, power-hungry person. However, she had reasons for everything she did. The black sheep of her family, she was forced into hiding after being involved in some underworld activities when she was younger. She then changed her name and started over as Lucinda Huertas with a new husband and new children.
Do we sympathize with her motives?
In season 1 of Netflix’s Dark, Darío has to deal with his mother reappearing in his life. She wants him on her side so she can take over a drug cartel and rule Mexico. As we find out more about Lucinda through flashbacks, we start to sympathize with her motives and want them to be heard by those who were responsible for her son being killed when he was 16 years old.
Does the audience like Leticia Huijara more than Maria Fernanda Morales, Gladys Florido, or Ana Layevska in their respective roles?
The quality of acting is important for developing a good connection with your audience. The way a character responds in any given situation helps audiences connect with it and determine whether they like or dislike them. The new season also adds emphasis on family bonds, more so than in previous seasons, which is something where I can see both Huijara and Layevska excelling.
What can we expect from Ms. Huijara this season?
This is one of those instances where we won’t know how Ms. Huijara compares until her character really gets going. Since it appears as though she’ll only appear in flashbacks, she won’t be around long enough for us to get a sense of how well she fits into a show that has an established tone and momentum.
