Two dead on the set of a Netflix series: one of the injured comes out of silence

Yeray Albelda, one of the actors who survived the road accident in Mexico while filming a Netflix series, tells the American press his version of the accident.

While filming the series The Chosen Oneinterrupted since last Thursday after the death of two actors in a road accident, has just resumed, Yeray Albelda, one of the actors who survived the tragedy, breaks the silence in the columns of variety.

The actor refuses to blame the driver of the vehicle. “I made a statement to the police and I have no fault with the driver and the production,” he said, adding that a mechanical failure was the cause of the accident. .

Yeray Albelda has no memory of the accident. At the time, the actors had to go to Tijuana in Mexico for a few days off when their vehicle rolled over. Yeray Abelda regained consciousness in the ambulance: “I was told I answered a few questions, but I have no recollection of that.”

“Deeply saddened”

According to Yeray Albelda, Raymundo Garduño Cruz and Juan Francisco González, both killed in the accident, had secondary roles in the series and had not finished filming their scenes. Netflix paid tribute to them in a statement posted online on Monday:

“We are deeply saddened to learn of the tragic accident that took the lives of Ray Garduño and Juan Francisco González. Our hearts go out to their loved ones and to those who were injured in this accident.”

The facts occurred last Thursday in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur, where the filming is taking place. Two other cast members and four crew members were injured and are in stable condition.

The Chosen One is a series about a 12-year-old child who discovers that he is the new earthly incarnation of Jesus Christ.
