Posted by

Spanish-speaking productions are killing it in 2023: we enjoyed Chromosome 21 and Infiesto, among others, and in March, a new series started to gather consensus: Sky High (original Spanish title: Hasta El Cielo), a TV show that continues the success of the Spanish movie of the same name, released in 2020. The events are inspired by the true story of Madrid’s “aluniceros,” a gang of robbers who habitually drive heavy vehicles against the shops’ windows to crash them and steal the products they sell. The cast comprises many Spanish actors, but the one who stands out is Sole, the female protagonist. The actress playing her role is Asia Ortega: let’s discover more about her.
