Series talk: Elite

Yeah! I found a series to make up the void after watching la Casa de Papel/ Money Heist! An it's a series called Elite. 3 working class teenagers start at an exclusive Spanish private school. Their school collapsed due to a faulty construction. Because of that, they received scholarships from the construction company.  But starting at the new school and blending in, just isn't that easy.

My thoughts

I loved la Casa de Papel/ Money Heist so much! So was I definitely looking for another series. And then I stumbled upon Elte. A series with 3 actors from la Casa de Papel. Well, I couldn't wait to tart watching! Of course, the genre en the story is totally different but I have to say that I liked Elite from the very first start. 

 

There's only 1 season available at this moment on Netflix. So it was easy to watch Elite very quickly! 

I enjoyed seeing the actors from la Casa de Papel again. I also really liked the stories. 3 teenagers, that are quite poor, going to a school full of elite. It's hard to blend in, make friends, get used to the way of learning at the school. 

 

The series reminds me a bit of "You", with the tension in the series. But it's also about looking further than appearances, economics and romance. The combination of it all, makes it an awesome series. I really enjoyed watching. 

The actors

As I already told you, I started watching Elite because of 3 actors that also played in La Casa de Papel: 

 

  • Maria Pedraza plays the role of Marina. I knew her as Allison Parker in La Casa de Papel. 
  • Jaime Lorente (Denver in La Casa de Papel) plays the role of Nano
  • And Miguel Herrán plays Christian (I knew him as Rio)

I was very impressed by the actors in the series as well. A few of my favorites: 

 

  • Danna Paola in the role of Lu
  • Omar Ayuso as Omar
  • Ester Expósito as Carla
