After the worldwide success of the series, ‘Who Killed Sara?’, Eugenio Siller shares his most intimate interview

You won’t believe what the Mexican actor, from Netflix’s most popular non-English language series, told us!


Single for the time being, and entirely devoted to his craft, which has been his true passion since he was a child, the very handsome Eugenio Siller is enjoying unprecedented success in his long career as an actor thanks to his role as Chema in the NetfIix series ‘Who Killed Sara?’

We took the opportunity to visit Eugenio while he’s back in his Los Angeles home taking a break from shooting for a few weeks so he could tell us all about his life and the sweet taste of success. He openly shares the most beautiful thing that has ever happened to him, as well as the saddest. Also revealing the eternal contradiction regarding his skin color.

While posing for the cameras on the beaches of Malibu, California, this was everything our incredibly handsome leading man had to share.

“I forget that I am famous. There are times when people stare at me and I wonder: “Why are they looking at me?”

You play a gay character, is this new for your career as an actor?

“If I had not had the success that I have had, I would not have starred in a novela. My teenage friends would continue to make fun of my dreams.”

You’re Mexican, but you’re looks don’t match the Latino stereotype they’re looking for here in Hollywood. Am I wrong?

Did your parents support you since the beginning?
