Elite is Netflix’s latest hot new Spanish drama, which arrived on the streaming platform last week.
In the early episodes of Elite on Netflix, the snobbish Guzman (played by Miguel Bernardeau) is the main villain making the lives of Nadia (Mina El Hammani), Samuel (Itzan Escamilla) and Christian (Miguel Herran) difficult.
He is also the brother of lead character Marina (Maria Pedraza).
Here’s everything you need to know about Guzman actor Miguel Bernardeau.
Who is Miguel Bernardeau?
Miguel Bernardeau is a 22-year-old actor from Spain.
Though this is his only role that has been seen in the UK, he has acted in a number of series in his native country.
His first screen appearance was in a 2016 episode of long-running Spanish comedy-drama Cuéntame cómo pasó (Tell Me How it Happened).
His mother is actress Ana Duato, who plays the main role in the series.
In 2017, he followed this with a supporting role in comedy Es Por Tu Bien (It’s For Your Own Good).
In this film, which saw three dads trying to stop their daughters dating undesirable boyfriends, he starred alongside Pedro Almodovar collaborator Javier Camara.
He returned to TV in 2017 playing Toni in thriller Inhibidos (Inhibited).
The following year, he appeared in a recurring role in comedy Sabuesos (Bloodhounds).
The bizarre-sounding synopsis for the series, in which Miguel played Isaac, reads: “Max is a Jack Russell dog genetically modified for criminal purposes so he is able to talk.
“Running away from the criminals whom he is working he is wounded and saved by detective trying-to-be Alberto (Salva Reina), who is fired and looking for a home.
“They end in Marta’s (Maria Esteve) home – Alberto’s sister in law – who lives with her two children.
“Thanks to them all Alberto finally manages to be a detective and establishes with Max their detective agency: Sabuesos.”
His final role before becoming Guzman in Elite was in crime comedy Ola de crimenes (Crimewave), in which he had a lead role.
In January, Miguel revealed in an interview with EuropaPress that he was in rehearsals for Elite, Netflix’s second original Spanish drama.
It was then announced that he would be playing a lead role as Guzman.
