Alberto Zeni “Narcos: Mexico”
Today on The Neil Haley Network’s Thinking Through The Trees Show, The Total Tutor Neil Haley and Michael Chappie will interview Alberto Zeni “Narcos: Mexico”.
ALBERTO ZENI is making his way to the US small screen in the highly-anticipated upcoming second season of Netflix’s crime drama “Narcos: Mexico” (returning February 13th, 2020). He will be starring alongside Diego Luna (Gallardo), Scoot McNairy (the narrator) and Teresa Ruiz (Bautista).
It has been over a year since the Season 1 release of “Narcos: Mexico”, which effectively shifted the long-running drug cartel drama into new territory. The first season of “Narcos: Mexico”, was the fourth season of “Narcos” overall and it reset the Netflix series when it traveled back to 1980s Mexico to show the birth of the Guadalajara cartel and trace the origins of the Mexican drug war, beginning at the time when Mexican traffickers were a loose and disorganized confederation of small-time independent cannabis growers and dealers.
Born in Monterrey, Mexico, Alberto first caught the acting bug when he was 14 years old while working for Parque Plaza Sesamo in his hometown of Monterrey, Mexico; a family-friendly destination with a Sesame Street theme featuring rides, games and a water park. Singing, dancing and playing characters at the park wasn’t his only direction as he had goals of becoming an inventor and even received a degree in Engineering.
After completing his studies, Alberto continued working in the entertainment industry starring in telenovelas such as “Hoy Soy Nadie,” “Trillizas de Colores,” “Bajo el Alma,” “XY. La Revista” and the web series “Vidas Cruzadas” starring Kate del Castillo.
It wasn’t until his mid – twenties, where he decided to make a drastic change, pack up his bags and move to Los Angeles, CA to continue his acting journey. While in LA, Alberto immersed himself in the craft – training in the Meisner Technique and teaching himself English. Alberto is now fluent in Spanish, English, Italian, and can speak some French, Hebrew, Arabic and Mandarin.
Being multi-instrumentalist, he enjoys his free time playing the violin, piano, flute and guitar and is in a jam group called “Jamnation.” He also actively supports the homeless community and works with the nonprofit Homeward LA, which puts on theatrical productions that showcase the real-life experiences of people who have become homeless, thus humanizing their stories.
