Two actors from the Netflix series The chosen A were killed and six other cast or crew members were injured after the van they were traveling in crashed near Mulege on the Baja California Sur peninsula.
Local media reported the accident happened on Thursday and said the van overturned after going off the road in a desert area. The crew apparently worked in the nearby Santa Rosalia area at the time.
The Baja California Department of Culture said Friday that Raymundo Garduño Cruz and Juan Francisco González Aguilar died.
Netflix describes The chosen thus: “A 12-year-old boy learns that he is the return of Jesus Christ, destined to save humanity. Based on the comic book series by Mark Millar and Peter Gross.
According to the castings, the series is recorded by an independent production company.
