Blanca Suárez triumphs as a Cazanazi vigilante in Jaguar, the new Netflix series, and she already has two films pending release. She says that she prefers not to stop. Everything she does transcends and what she touches turns to gold.

He assures that it is quiet, but sometimes it buzzes inside. Nobody would say. It can’t stand heavy people, or those people who repeat things a lot. “I need calm people around me, who don’t hound me”, she warns. Almost everything he does or says – with a nonchalance that seems sincere – is followed by millions. “As the repercussion or the success of what I do does not depend on me, I do not go crazy with this either”.

In her new series, Jaguar, she plays a survivor of the Nazi camp at Mauthausen, who only lives for revenge in the Madrid of the 60s. “She is a wounded, lonely woman, who never relaxes. Until she joins a group of secret agents who, like her, seek justice”. The series has just premiered on Netflix.

“It is true that I have been working almost non-stop for more than ten years, but I cannot say if I am at my best, or that I have reached the place where I wanted to be. I have just premiered a series and I have finished shooting two films, El Test by Dani de la Orden, and El Cuarto Pasajero by Álex de la Iglesia. This profession is very mutant. Everything changes from one moment to another. Now I am not immersed in any filming and that totally conditions your life. The perception that the actors are always filming. The actor’s life comes with a delay, because what you see now is what we did a year ago. That is why it is curious to talk about a current moment in your life, you always go as out of sync with the reality”.

“One always trusts that that dream project is going to arrive, but probably what you have idealized will never happen. So you are lucky enough to be called. If I have checked something, it is that work calls work. I reaffirm that you have to work and work. You learn this job by working, staying active, not waiting for the dream role or the one that best suits your mood. It’s hard for me to say no to a project. If roughly it fits me and suits me by dates, I don’t have to reject it. Normally I value all the projects offered to me. I know that I am lucky enough to allow myself to reject some work, but if it is viable by dates and there is nothing terrifying surrounding it, I tend to say yes”.

“I feel unable to say which is the movie that I would have liked or would like to be in. Today I see one that I love and I say: That is the movie that I would like to do! But the next day I see another and I also like… I don’t feel empowered to choose an ideal film, because it could act in thousands. I don’t like to limit, it gives me more pressure. For example, I see myself in something like Una joven prometedora, but also in Mamma Mia! My bow it’s very broad”.

Jaguar is pure adrenaline. Before filming we talked a lot about the character, about what tone to give the series. We opted for action over the intimate tone. My character, Isabel Garrido, is a traumatized, lonely woman, always in the shadows, on the defensive. Her only meaning in life is revenge. She managed to escape from a Nazi concentration camp. To build the character, I studied her past very well, because everything she does in the present is a consequence of terrifying experiences Of your past”.

“I try not to have any point in common with my character, neither with this nor with any of those I have played. If you start putting things of yours on the paper, you open the door and end up making yourself. You have to get into it. You have to get into the character, and if then the unconscious plays a trick on you and you end up putting something of yours on it, then what are you going to do to it”.

“I have spent a lot of time alone, because this job is like that. You spend a lot of time away from home. But I prefer to be with people. I am not one of those who go alone on vacation. I have gotten used to being alone for a long time and I do not go up for the walls”.

“In the series there are a lot of fight scenes. I have mostly shot them myself, but with the help of a stuntman. Each of us had a stunt double for the stunts, and an action coordinator at the time of filming. Sometimes the doubles taught us to score the shot, and since I like this I learned a lot”.

“In the United States, coordinators of sex scenes are already common. In Spain there are beginning to be some in some filming, especially to reach a consensus, because not everyone feels comfortable doing a sex scene or talking about it. Yes, sometimes it’s already difficult to talk about it in your private life, because imagine yourself with someone you don’t know. It’s good to know where they are going to record you from and what is going to happen, to feel as comfortable as possible”.

“I have no idea why what I do has an impact and I have so many followers. I have no idea how success works. It is something that does not depend on me. If I put all my energy into being talked about, I would understand, but it is not my case. I can not explain it. I wish I could do the calculation and develop a formula to know that if I do this it will work and if I do this another it will not. Maybe the trick is to ignore it and do it spontaneously”.

“The bad part about exposing yourself publicly is that there are also a lot of bad ideas on social media. I show what I want to show, but it is not easy to find a balance. When you promote the conscious desire to be in the eye of the hurricane, you should know that you can receive praise but also criticism. But when you do not expose yourself on a personal level, quite the opposite, because you want to lead a discreet life, you also have to learn to manage that without you intending to receive comments, which is even more twisted. The conclusion is simple: whatever you do, there are people who are going to love it and others who are going to mess with you”.

“When I went out to the street after confinement I was struck by not feeling observed. I am not saying that I cannot go out, because I lead a normal life and sometimes things happen, but it is not the usual thing. One day suddenly I found myself in the supermarket and nobody noticed me, neither on the street… You get used to not being noticed by being looked at, and when that doesn’t happen it misses you a lot. I have a micro-place in the brain that is unconsciously pending of those people who recognize me, almost out of habit, and suddenly you realize that no one is looking at you. It is a very strange twist. Now that you can go without a mask on the street they have annoyed me again… (Laughter) It’s funny how easy it can be to disappear. To be an observer instead of an observed”.

“I am calm by nature, although sometimes I am very nervous inside. The disorder drives me crazy. Also heavy people, those who repeat things a lot are the ones who overwhelm me the most. I need calm people around me, who do not hound. On the other hand, I’m very impatient myself”.

“What I like least about acting are the schedules and being away from home. You go against the tide of the world, and that is very desperate. When I have a strong work streak there is no time for anything, neither to see your family nor to go to the gym. Lack of rest and sleep is bad for me. The other things in my profession are good. With enough rest, the rest goes smoothly”.

“I am not one of those people who felt a vocation, or who say they have always wanted to be actresses. I wanted to be an actress when I started working and I saw that it flowed, that I was comfortable. When I saw that they kept calling me to work I said to myself: That’s it, let yourself go and if one day it doesn’t flow, you look for something else. I wouldn’t mind dedicating myself to any other creative thing, for example something related to crafts, which calms me down a lot. This philosophy is very positive, I’m lucky because I have it naturally. This profession can be very frustrating. No matter how hard you try, you will not get the job of your dreams, because not everything is in your power, and you should not beat yourself up for it. The only thing you can do it is putting everything on your part to make it happen and enjoying what you have”.

Blanca Suárez, Óscar Casas, Iván Marcos, Adrián Lastra and Francesc Garrido take out their claws in the new Netflix series. It vindicates the Spanish victims of the Hitler delusion in the key of an action comic.

The Reichsadler, the imperial eagle of German heraldry, appropriated by Nazism in its symbolism, collapses on a hill and the blood accumulated in the concentration camps spills through the streets of Madrid. The header of the Jaguar series (now available on Netflix) begins with this brutal metaphor of how many faithful to Hitler found a safe corridor in Franco’s Spain to flee Europe after the fall of the Third Reich. All with an aesthetic of a graphic novel in the Maus style and to the sound of a great song by Ebri Knight, a Catalan folk punk group that vindicates in its lyrics the workers’ struggle and the republican cause. A wave that resonates in other scenes that portray this posh and lead sixties Madrid while playing, for example, Todo negro, the popular version that the band Los Salvajes made of Paint It Black, by The Rolling Stones, in 1966.

Until now, black was the memory of the Spaniards who, after taking refuge after the Civil War, ended up in Auschwitz, Mauthausen and other hells. “The story of those broken families that were lost and sold there, without a home to return to, either inside or outside Spain, has been told very little”, says Blanca Suárez about the relevance of this peripheral vision of the Holocaust.

She plays a survivor of those camps who becomes the linchpin of a kind of A-Team, and we’re already getting more into the realm of comics than historical memory, with five very different members united to hunt down those Nazis fleeing by the Spanish way. A plot similar to that of Hunters, the Al Pacino series (“I saw it before filming and it is very crazy and Tarantinian, but, although the theme is similar, in everything else they are very different”, clarifies Blanca), only that with a radically patriotic DNA.

The best example is the scene in which the leader of that team, played by Iván Marcos, draws the true heart of the Jaguar sitting in front of the painting of Goya’s Executions. “Recording at the Prado was something exceptional, a high point of the shoot”, recalls the actor. “The image and the words were closely related. Both refer to the Spanish resistance against the invading forces. The series is not based on real events nor is it a political pamphlet. It is an action thriller. But one of its great values ​​is to remember the almost 10,000 Spaniards who were sent to concentration camps with the approval of Franco, and heroes like Cristino García, who fought with La Nueve to drive the Nazis out of Paris”.

That essence of action, the keyword shared by the five actors to define this Bambú Producciones project for Netflix, jumps from the Ritz hotel, the Piquer galleries and other iconic settings in the capital to Cabo de Gata, in Almería. In fact, Blanca Suárez and Iván Marcos film a vital trance for their characters on the Genovese beach, the same one in which Sean Connery and Harrison Ford shot down a plane with a clean gull, Nazi to be exact, in Indiana Jones and the last crusade.

Here the shootouts and explosions go from the sand to the sea, in a handful of fast-paced scenes with an engaging vintage execution. “I really like those sequences because there is risk, there is adrenaline… And because the specialists who help us are machines”, says an enthusiastic Óscar Casas, the youngest of the quintet.

His character is a collateral victim of Nazi barbarism and also of the castrating morality of that society: “He goes through life as if he were the king, with his hips thrown forward, that attitude to the James Dean but in tacky… more interesting is that he is a character ‘with a mask’, to whom things happen inside that he does not teach. I have explored toxic masculinity a lot, that reinforces how hetero he is due to insecurities or fears”.

In this tortuous path, he has the help of the most peculiar member of the group, another survivor of the camps whom they call Deaf but who is actually rather mute. “The first thing I thought is: ‘How do I do this?'” Says Adrián Lastra. “I’ve gotten into a pretty big eggplant, in fact Sordo changed a lot during the rehearsal process. My greatest fear was to find out how he spoke, but with a lot of personal study and help from professionals specialized in problems in the mouth, such as a cut tongue, I began to glimpse how he could communicate”.

The truth is that a gesture between his character and Óscar Casas’s is enough to give skin and truth to his bond. “I just had to know Oscar well and love him. It cost me little because he is a wonderful person and a super-generous actor, very much for the work of creating and playing”, says Adrián. Praise goes, praise comes. It is Oscar’s turn: “My brother Mario did know Adrián, but I didn’t have the pleasure… We connect very quickly, because we have the same humor and a very similar sensitivity. He was idyllic”.

Beyond revolvers, poison bottles and punctured telephones, the most powerful weapon in the series is to calibrate five actors as five bullets so that the whole is genuine, and with that flow that takes hold of them when they come together to pose before a camera. It was a risk, as Iván Marcos points out: “For example, Blanca and I are very different. But much. And our work processes are too. Well seen, it could have been a disaster. But it has been the opposite. Another point for the producer, Ramón Campos, who has a vision of the playing field that is not even normal”.

In this dance of double pairs, the fifth element is missing. The veteran. We take advantage of the fact that Francesc Garrido apparently embodies the voice of the group’s conscience to ask him what Jaguar is really about. Is it a revenge story? Fighting oblivion? “I think, above all, it is a series about justice. Which undoubtedly forces you to also do a memory exercise. And, although it plays to mix genres, at heart it is a classic story: some guys and a girl who look for the bad guys to do justice. The result is atomic”.

It is perhaps that conjugation of justice and oblivion that makes the series more topical. “They are universal concepts that we can extrapolate to the mild conflicts of our daily lives and that we also see in the news, in contexts of wars and major political issues”, reflects Blanca, who has worked in depth on post-traumatic stress and the life block that she suffers your character. “At first anger or fear predominates. Time has to pass for the dilemma between revenge and justice to come. When you go to sleep every night with your past, it is very frustrating to be told from the outside: “Get over it, turn the page”. Perhaps the advice we give is that acting hot does not ease the pain, going from behind with a gun does not end the nightmare. The only thing that can serve you and society is justice”, concludes the actress.

Jaguar treats ordinary people as heroes who are capable of prevailing over their traumas and dedicating their lives to the fight against fascism”, concludes Iván: “Marvel and DC have to invent them. In our history we have examples of bone meat”. From a comic, really.

Little by little Blanca Suárez has been conquering the hearts of the spectators with her talent and her magnetism in front of the camera. Her versatility, determination and sensitivity have led her to rank among the best Spanish actresses and she is one of the best-known faces of our cinema. After her debut in the series El Internado (Antena 3), she quickly jumped to the movies. Later, Pedro Almodóvar’s magic wand touched his shoulder and he participated in La Piel que Habito (2011) and Los Amantes Pasajeros (2013) and afterwards he has been splicing draft projects and working under the orders of directors such as Imanol Uribe, José Luis Cuerda or Álex de la Iglesia, with whom he has just shot El Cuarto Pasajero.

A star out of the ordinary
Blanca Suárez has also lavished on flashy series such as Lo que Escondían sus Ojos (Telecinco), in which she played the sophisticated Sonsoles de Icaza, Marchioness of Llanzol, Carlos, Rey Emperador (Telecinco), in which she gave life to Isabel from Portugal, and many others, such as the television super hit Las Chicas del Cable (Netflix), which was a great moment in his career. Nominated for the Goya Awards, we have also seen her in short films, in fashion editorials, in various video clips, and reign on the red carpets with her splendid figure, her imitated styles and her natural appeal.

Rendezvous in French Brittany
To get to know her more closely and share her little beauty secrets, we spoke with Blanca Suárez in an incomparable setting, the Breton island of Ouessant, one of the purest ecosystems in the world, a UNESCO Biosphere Natural Reserve, where the French cosmetic firm Guerlain discovered the exclusive Black Bee honey, the star ingredient of its Abeille Royale line, together with royal jelly and vitamin C and made a commitment to look after the bees, which are in danger of extinction today, creating the Conservation Program Guerlain for Bees.

Take care of your skin from 30
At 32 years old, Blanca Suárez is aware that beauty must be cared for and defended every day from the passage of time, carrying out a careful beauty routine and with high-quality products with which she also identifies personally for her commitment and respect for the environment. That is why she relies on products formulated with this honey, which prevent and reduce the effects of aging. Because Black Bee honey is a nectar rich in amino acids and essential active ingredients that are very suitable for repairing and restoring the skin.

Blanca, of all those you have played, who is your favorite character?
I do not know if I have a favorite character or role today, throughout all these years there are characters that you remember with great affection and then there are other projects in which you remember the experience itself more.

What would you have liked to do if you weren’t an actress?
It is a question that I have never been able to answer well, because I do not know very well what it would be. I have fantasized about other professions in my head, but the truth is that here I am still entangled with interpretation…

What is your favorite beauty product?
My favorite beauty product is not one, there are several, I think the one I use the most is. I actually use it twice a day, in the morning and at night, after removing my makeup. And I usually use moisturizing eye patches a lot, which decongest that area a lot.

What does it mean for you to be an ambassador for a cosmetic firm like Guerlain?
Before working with Guerlain I did not know any special information about bees, I have to admit it, but it is true that as a result of working with them and being part of their family I have learned a lot of information. I did not know that they were the main pollinators on this planet. Seventy percent of plants depend on them.

What are the 3 qualities that you value the most in a beauty product?
Three things that I look for in a beauty product would be obviously, that it is effective, I like that it is light and that it does not grease the skin, that you do not feel that you are wearing a product, that it integrates perfectly with your skin type. And that we also feel identified with the philosophy of the brand, with the product we are using.

What do you like most about Guerlain?
I like many things about Guerlain. They have taught me that they are a brand that advocates sustainability, to protect the planet. What planet we have only one! And that we have to take care of it.
