Each “Who killed Sara?” Cast member
The Netflix Murder Mystery Who killed Sara? has been a huge success for the streaming platform since its first release in late March. This Mexican drama follows the Lazacanos, a criminal family involved in sex trafficking and murder, who may be responsible for the death of Sara Guzmán. He has it all: betrayal, murder, infidelity and forbidden love. It’s no wonder fans can’t stay away. With each season revealing more questions than answers, no one should be surprised if a season three is indeed on its way, aimed at answering all of these questions. After all, Season 2 was announced just five days after the Season 1 premiere. Who killed Sara? becoming Netflix’s most successful foreign language series in the United States, it would make sense for this Netflix telenovela to exist for a long time.
A little surprise about Who killed Sara? It’s not the outrageous plots or unexpected plot twists, but rather the success of such a show that few or no big names are attached to. And, although a show may not necessarily be need Hollywood’s best-known actors for success, it sure doesn’t hurt to have a fan favorite or two on a new TV series.
Alex Guzmán, Sara’s brother who embarks on a path of revenge against the Lazacons for the murder of his sister, is played by Manolo Cardona. And, unless you’ve seen a lot of Mexican dramas or watched her little stint on the drug crime TV show. Narcos, you wouldn’t recognize it immediately. But, her recognition – or lack of it – doesn’t affect her portrayal of Alex as angry, frustrated, and grieving. Like Mónica Marie Zorrilla from Variety noted: “This is the first time Cardona has entered the world stage, front and center, in a series that millions of people are watching.” And, despite his inexperience, his performance is powerful enough to draw fans in and present an engaging and spinning murder mystery.

He has since built a versatile career playing challenging characters, as a model and even starting a career as a singer.
Fatima Molina – Clara
Similar to her other co-stars, Fátima Molina is also a bit unknown on the American scene. She has a few acting roles in Mexican dramas such as Diablero or La Doña. In Who killed Sara?, she plays the role of Clara, Chema’s surrogate mother and Marifer’s little sister.
Ginés García Millán – César Lazcano
The manipulator and avenger César Lazcanois is played by the Spanish actor Ginés García Millán. Millán’s performance as Patriarch Lazacnos is so powerful that sometimes you forget he’s even playing. Producer and actor, Millán has equal theatrical and cinematographic experiences.
Claudia Ramírez – Mariana Lazcano
Claudia Ramírez embodies the cunning and sly Mariana Lazcano, the matriarch of this criminal family and the mother of Chema, Rodolfo and Elisa. Ramírez’s performance as the innocent and gentle Mariana is so compelling that fans initially assume Caesar is the series’ villain until later episodes reveal Mariana as the true mastermind. Throughout his 20-year career, Ramírez has starred in numerous movies and TV shows, including Streeters and Idol.
Juan Carlos Remolina – Sergio Hernández
What better man to play the sadistic Sergio Hernández, Caesar’s right-hand man, than a Mexican actor with over thirty years in the business? Juan Carlos Remolina plays Sergio, and he plays him well. It’s no surprise that this actor has a few accolades – including an Emmy – to his name.
Héctor Jiménez – Elroy
You might 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, the adopted son and faithful disciple of Mariana. As well as staring in this Netflix drama, you can find Jiménez producing movies or acting as a stage clown.
Litzy – Marifer
Litzy surprised us all with her portrayal of mentally unstable and heartbroken Mafier, Sara’s former best friend and Clara’s sister. Who could have expected that Marifer had “killed” Sara? Surely not from fans, because Marifer’s Litzy performance was just so compelling – no one expected her to be murder. If you want to see more of Litzy’s roles, you can find her in Quiéreme Tonto or Al Otro Lado del Muro.
Luis Roberto Guzmán – Lorenzo Rossi
Luis Roberto Guzmán plays Lorenzo, Chema’s longtime partner who is a lawyer. Most of Guzmán’s works consist of Mexican telenovelas, including El Pantera.
