Drama on the set of the Netflix series in Mexico: two actors die in a car accident

Sylvie Claire / June 19, 2022

Two actors working on the upcoming Netflix series The Chosen One lost their lives and six others were injured Thursday in Mexico in a traffic accident.
 
The Department of Culture of Baja California released the names of the two actors, Raymundo Garduno Cruz and Juan Francisco Gonzalez Aguilar. The other six people injured would be actors and crew members. They are reportedly in stable condition.
 
The van reportedly left the road and overturned. The accident occurred in a desert area near the town of Mulege, according to local media.
 
The production is based on the comic book series American Jesus by writer Mark Millar and artist Peter Gross. It features a 12-year-old boy who learns he is the reincarnation of Jesus Christ, destined to save humanity, according to a Netflix description.
 
Filming for the series, which was previously called American Jesus, reportedly began in Mexico in April.
 
Redrum, the company running the shoot, has temporarily halted production, Deadline reported Saturday.
