Young actor Miguel Ángel García recently made his Netflix debut playing the character Moco in the new Netflix drama Blue Miracle. This inspiring flick tells the story of an all-boys orphanage in Mexico that begins to struggle financially after a local disaster, Hurricane Odile, damages the building. The orphanage is called Casa Hogar and is based on a true story.
Throughout the movie, Moco has a harrowing journey as he learns to open up and accept companionship and guidance from those around him. Commenting on his character’s arc, García shared exclusively with us, “I think Moco is an incredibly dynamic character. Obviously very complicated, too, because I think he struggles a lot with rejection and denial.”
Before staring in Blue Miracle, García was not represented by an agency and starred in a series of short movies. He also made appearances in the television shows Ensemble and Deputy.
