Reopening of Miguel Bernardeau Web!

Hello and welcome back to Miguel Bernardeau Web! I would like to thank Mouza for letting me continue this site. I’ve been a fan of Miguel since Elite and I’m excited to be running a site dedicated to him. I have been working on relaunching this site for the last few months, but I couldn’t make it in time to re-open it before his two new shows premiered. So I thought it would be fitting to do it on his birthday. On that note, Feliz cumpleaños to Miguel! Have an amazing day with your loved ones.

The site is back with a whole new look, which is inspired by one of Miguel’s new shows, 1899. I hope you all love it as much as I do! Speaking of, the gallery has been updated with some promotional photos and high-resolution screencaps of Miguel from the first season of 1899! If you haven’t watched it yet, I highly recommend it. I have also added photos of Miguel attending events from the last two years. Thanks to my friend Emily for all the help!

I’ll be working on completing the gallery over the next few weeks, but in the meantime, I hope you enjoy these new additions. You can follow us on Twitter at @mbernardeaucom and Instagram at @miguelbernardeauweb to keep up with our updates!

Miguel Bernardeau Talks ‘Zorro’ with Variety

Before the premiere of Zorro last Sunday at MIPCOM, Miguel spoke with Variety about the show and his preparations for the iconic role. This interview also includes the show’s executive producer Sergio Pizzolante.

Spanish star Miguel Bernardeau can relate to “Zorro.” 

“He has to grow up really fast. He has to decide who he wants to be and he has to do it when still very young. Which also happened to me,” he tells Variety in Cannes before the market premiere of his new show. 

Following the success of “Elite,” Bernardeau has become a household name. But he doesn’t think about it when choosing his roles. 

“I wish it was that simple. Also, I didn’t ‘choose’ this role – I auditioned for it seven times. Before the first one, I found out my grandfather was sick and then it went really badly. But I had this fire in me already, so I kept coming back.”

Mipcom opener “Zorro” is produced by L.A. and Madrid-based Secuoya Studios and directed by Javier Quintas. As reported by Variety, Prime Video has acquired rights for the U.S., Latin America, Spain, Andorra and Portugal. Mediawan Rights is handling other international distribution..

But despite its pedigree, Bernardeau still took his time before committing to the show. 

“It was a difficult decision and a long shoot. At first, I was thinking about Zorro being this iconic character, but I decided to leave it behind. If I was going to do this, I wanted to have fun. And you can’t have fun if you are constantly wondering if you are copying someone else,” he adds. 

“I just saw him as a character I wanted to play. Someone my younger self would surely admire.”

In the show, set in 1834, Diego de la Vega returns to Los Angeles after the murder of his father. A masked assassin named Zorro also died that night. But it is believed that his spirit lives on, waiting for a successor. 

“I like these first episodes. They show how he is becoming a man, discovering all these secrets from the past. He is thinking about where he came from, but also about who he can become, which is something I understand,” he notes, admitting that the gruelling shoot quickly took its toll. 

“It was hard. I actually discovered that action sequences are not that playful. It stopped being fun somewhere around the fifth month,” he jokes. Still, the “fast-paced” version of “Zorro” was something that brought him joy.

“I want to choose projects that make me happy. There are so many shows out there that pretend to be something they are not. Not this one. There is adventure, action and characters that bring so much to the story, but it still has depth and very emotional moments.”
