Sense8 is the series which has taken fans by storm. The show depicts eight characters all around the world who, all of a sudden, are able to connect with each other through their thoughts. However, only they can see and hear each other. The characters show up in each others lives unexpectedly at first, but soon hone their skills and realize that this is all happening for the greater good. Sense8 is an important show which portrays characters from all around the world who are not usually portrayed in Hollywood. The cast includes minority, gay, and transgender characters who work together and eventually become a family.
While this show is beloved by fans globally, last year Netflix decided to cancel Sense8. The outcry was enormous. Fans rallied on social media to bring it back to the small screen. Because of this, Netflix decided to bring back the show for one last, two hour episode.
We met up with Miguel Angel Silvestre at the Sense8 season finale event in Hollywood. Miguel Angel Silvestre, who plays Lito Rodriguez in the show, speaks about the loving connection he has for his castmates. When we asked him what the highlights of shooting the show were he said, “The possibility to know eight different cultures, to be able to travel, and experience how different we are but at the same time how similar we are. It’s easy to judge something you don’t know because you are scared about it. But the closer you get, the more everything makes sense.” He continues,
“I think the episode has everything the fans like about Sense8 and hopefully they’re gonna feel very satisfied. Thanks to Lana, I think she had the fans in mind when she was writing and directing.”
We are sad to see Sense8 go but incredibly happy that this remarkable show got the send off it deserved.
