Queen of the South: Are Alice Braga and Peter Gadiot friends in real life?


    Queen of the South will be back for a fifth season but fans do not yet know when the new series is going to start. The USA Network drama started filming for season five in March but production was halted. So now it looks like the latest episodes won’t come out until sometime next year.

    WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Queen of the South.

    When Queen of the South first started, James Valdez (played by Peter Gadiot) was loyal to Camila Vargas (Veronica Falcon) who saw Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga) as a nuisance more than anything.

    Over time though, James got closer to Teresa and they formed a bond both as friends and much more.

    So when she questioned James’ loyalty, he left to go and work with the CIA to try and protect Teresa from the other side.

    At the end of season four, James did return with a warning for her, showing once again that he is an ally.

    Are Alice Braga and Peter Gadiot friends in real life?

    While actors Braga and Gadiot have plenty of chemistry on-screen, it doesn’t seem as if there is much of it away from the cameras.

    There are no interviews whether either of them talk about the other and if there is, they are very rare.

    The only time the pair have mentioned their co-star was part of a Facebook Live Q&A Braga did two years ago.

    She was asked by a fan about what it was like to kiss Gadiot and her response got fans talking.

    Taking to Reddit, one fan said: “(Teresa and James) I was just browsing the casts Instagrams, and noticed that neither of them have anything of each other on their accounts.

    “Whereas Hemky and Alice (Pote and Teresa) post often about each other.

    “I was just curious if they don’t get along IRL, aren’t friends, whatever you want to call it…”

    Others then commented on how they believed Gadiot is a “private person” and how he isn’t “super close” with any of the cast.

    This doesn’t seem to be the case with all of Gadiot’s co-stars though.

    On Instagram, there are a couple of pictures of Gadiot with actress Falcon.

    Another Reddit fan also commented: “I actually think he’s close with the actress who plays Isabela and her boyfriend!

    “He’s posted a video of mountaineering with him / them I think.”

    So despite not having the closest relationship in real life, Braga and Gadiot make it count when they get in front of the camera as Teresa and James.

    Queen of the South is available to watch on Netflix.
