Karol G has been cast in Netflix‘s upcoming limited series Griselda. The show is based on the life of Griselda Blanco, a Colombian drug queenpin, who will be portrayed by Sofia Vergara.

Karol G will play Carla, one of Griselda’s “mules.” In the series, Carla is responsible for transporting drugs from Colombia to the United States.

“It’s a great role because there’s real character development,” the Colombian singer told Billboard. “[Carla] is a character that evolves. She sees what she does as a job, but also as a way to maintain her family, and she’s tough! She reaches another level.”

To prep for her first acting role, Karol G has spent months receiving lessons in acting and body movement. As a result, the classes helped her improve her other artistic qualities. “[The lessons] totally opened my eyes to a different perspective,” she said. “They’ve helped my career as an artist and my development onstage.”

She continued, “With my teacher, we get into different situations and he helps me get in character. When you’re not an actor, your goal is to do things well so they’re credible. But in acting, you really get inside a character and you forget about what people want.”

Stay tuned for more updates on Netflix’s Griselda.
