One of the latest Spanish series on Netflix is The Longest Night, a crime drama that only has 6 episodes (which you can finish in the time it takes to watch the last 2 episodes of Stranger Things). Released on July 8, the series follows Simón Lago, who has just been captured for the murder of 20 individuals and put into a Psychiatric Facility. However, it seems the serial killer already knows what’s going to happen next as he says to the prison director Hugo “this will be a very long night.” It turns out he is right. Minutes later, an armed gang shows up demanding to take Lago. Things only turn into a bloodbath after that.
Although the show’s ratings are not positive so far, the performances of its cast members are still praised. Here is a quick look into The Longest Night cast that will give you information about their characters, their previous roles, ages, and even real-life partners.
We mentioned the prison director Hugo, whose full name is Hugo Roca. Faced with the threat of the gang wanting to take the prisoner, Hugo does everything in his power not to give in to them. He is played by Alberto Ammann, who most famously played Pacho Herrera in Narcos: Mexico (2018-2021) and Narcos (2015-2017). Ammann, who is 43, is in a committed relationship with Clara Mendez-Leite, a Spanish actress. Mendez-Leite celebrated Ammann’s last birthday on Instagram with this photo.
The aforementioned serial killer Simón Lago, whose nickname is The Alligator, is portrayed by Luis Callejo. The 52-year-old actor is known for In from the Cold (2022), Vis a Vis (2018), and The Boat (2011-2013). He also appeared in movies such as Risen (2016) and The Fury of a Patient Man (2016). He has been married to Carmen Morey. Here is a picture of the couple shared on Instagram.
Another member of The Longest Night cast, Lucía Díez, plays Nuria. Díez is 26 years old and is known mainly for her roles in various tv series such as El Cid (2020-2021), A Different View (2018-2019), and Velvet Colección (2017-2018). Not much is known about Díez’s personal life.
