Netflix Announces the Cast of 'Senna', Which Begins Filming in Brazil

Senna, the new Netflix fiction miniseries about the thrilling story of one of Brazil’s greatest heroes, will feature Alice Wegmann, Camila Márdila, Christian Malheiros, Gabriel Louchard, Hugo Bonemer, Julia Foti, Marco Ricca, Pâmela Tomé, and Susana Ribeiro in the cast. These actors are joining Gabriel Leone, who will portray Ayrton Senna.

In addition to the Brazilian actors, Kaya Scodelario, who was previously announced, along with Matt Mella, Arnaud Viard, Joe Hurst, Johannes Heinrichs, Keisuke Hoashi, Leon Ockenden, Patrick Kennedy, Richard Clothier, Steven Mackintosh, and Tom Mannion are also part of the series.

The large-scale production and some of the actors have just arrived in Brazil, where filming is taking place in São Paulo and Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro. The miniseries, which is one of Netflix Brazil’s most ambitious and innovative productions and is produced by Gullane, has already been filmed in Argentina and Uruguay and will proceed to the United Kingdom after completing filming in the country.

Over the course of six episodes, Senna will, for the first time, depict the journey of overcoming obstacles, ups and downs, joys, and sorrows of Ayrton, exploring his personality and personal relationships. The starting point will be the beginning of the three-time Formula 1 champion’s racing career when he moved to England to compete in Formula Ford, all the way to the tragic accident in Imola, Italy, during the San Marino Grand Prix. 

With general direction by Vicente Amorim, who also signs as showrunner and director, and direction by Julia Rezende, Senna is produced by Gullane in partnership with Senna Brands and the pilot’s family.
