Carla Hool — Narcos (Netflix)
Hool worked alongside Carmen Cuba on Netflix’s Pablo Escobar series, specializing in casting an ensemble of Latin talent while Cuba cast the show’s lead roles.
Which has been the hardest part to cast in your career, and why?
Hool: There aren’t a big list of name Latino actors. The same ones always come up—Salma Hayek, Javier Bardem, Antonio Banderas, Benicio Del Toro. That’s something I’m trying to change. In Narcos, Juan Pablo Raba is a great Colombian actor—he plays Pablo’s cousin, and I’ve known him for years but nobody would want to cast him because he was not a name. And now, after somebody gave him a chance, he’s working like crazy.
