Bird Box Barcelona Cast & Character Guide

Bird Box is finally getting a sequel, and while there’s no A-list actor like Sandra Bullock leading the movie, the Bird Box Barcelona cast is full of great performers. The original Bird Box follows a mother (Bullock) attempting to protect her two children from supernatural entities that make people take their own lives when they’re looked at, which leads to everyone blindfolding themselves. However, Bird Box 2 isn’t a direct sequel to the original 2018 movie. Bird Box Barcelona takes place in the titular Spanish city, and follows a new group of characters, as the entities terrorize not only a small town but the whole world.

Given that Bird Box Barcelona is much bigger in scope compared to its predecessor, it has a bigger cast. While most of the actors in the movie are extras who take their own lives based on the Bird Box 2 trailer, there’s a tight-knit group of survivors who do anything they can to protect themselves. As the movie is one of Netflix’s Spanish productions, Bird Box 2 has a mostly Spanish cast, along with one increasingly popular British actor. Bird Box Barcelona will be available to watch on July 14, 2023 on Netflix, and there are plenty of other shows and movies to watch featuring the Bird Box 2 cast before then.

Mario Casas As Sebastián

Sebastián is the lead character of the new psychological horror film, and he’s essentially playing the same role Bullock played in the original Bird Box, as he’s trying to protect his child from the supernatural entities and keep her safe in the post-apocalyptic world. Casas is a Spanish actor and Barcelona native, and while he hasn’t crossed the pond or starred in any Hollywood movies, he’s well respected in Spain. Bird Box Barcelona actor Mario Casas previously starred in the Spanish comedy-drama Los Hombres de Paco for three years, and then the 2010 romantic drama movie Three Steps Above Heaven.

Being a young actor, Alejandra Howard doesn’t have many other acting credits before joining the Brid Box Barcelona cast, but Netflix is seemingly very impressed with her, and the streamer has the actor in its back pocket. Howard starred in both the Netflix drama series Fatima and the Netflix movie The Wasteland.

It isn’t clear if she’ll speak Spanish, as her one line in the trailer is in English. The actor has been rapidly rising in popularity, going from roles in British series like Broadchurch, to having a lead role in the hit 2022 horror movie Barbarian.
