Narcos should end if safety of cast can’t be guaranteed: Pedro Pascal


Narcos tar Pedro Pascal believes the popular Netflix series should end if the safety of cast and crew cannot be guaranteed, as reported by The Independent.

On 11 September, Carlos Muñoz Portal – a location scout working on the show – was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds in a remote area near San Bartolo Actopan, an area said to have some of Mexico’s highest murder rates.

The 37-year-old, whose previous credits include Sicario and Bond film Spectre, was on the hunt for season four filming locations just outside Mexico City.

“We can’t-do it if it’s not safe. We’re talking about lives,” Pascal said in a recent interview.

“If they want to do it, they’ll figure it out in a safe way.” The former Game of Thrones star further said.

Reports suggest that production could move from Mexico to Columbia where the series, which formerly starred Brazilian actor Wagner Moura as Pablo Escobar, was originally filmed.

Muñoz was working on the upcoming fourth season which is said to explore the rise of Mexico’s infamous Juarez cartel; season three – which was unveiled on Netflix earlier this month – tracks the rise and fall of Colombia’s Cali cartel and the shift of the drugs wars to Mexico.
