Everybody is happy that the season 2 of Narcos is finally available on Netflix. Following the life and exploits of Pablo Escobar, the criminal kingpin, is very satisfying and we’re not too sure why. Perhaps it’s because at the height of his empire he was making about $60 million per day?
Since the beginning of this show, people are wondering what do the characters of Narcos look like in real life? Below you’ll find a list of a couple of characters with a little bit of information about them, but not too much. If you want to find out more about their lives, google it!
The casting on this one was amazing, as the actor looks just like the real man. He also plays him brilliantly too. Pablo Escobar made a fortune by selling drugs and his profit on each kilo of cocaine was absolutely insane.
