With Sense8’s much-anticipated finale almost upon us, Attitude speaks to Miguel Angel Silvestre about playing gay, his admiration for show creator Lana Wachowski and why fans will be happy with the ending

Miguel Angel Silvestre

You can only imagine the crushing disappointment when, after years of admiring Miguel Ángel Silvestre from a distance, I was told that I wouldn’t be on the sidelines of a rooftop photoshoot in Los Angeles, and instead would be speaking to the 36-year-old Spaniard on the phone. Still, perhaps not being distracted by the actor’s impossible beauty was for the best — I almost fell into a trance just listening to his voice on the line from the sun-drenched American city. Miguel is, of course, one of the stars of Sense8, Netflix’s too-short-lived sci-fidrama series that’s due to come to a close in June with a special featurelength finale, which will hopefully tie up loose ends.

The streaming giant’s initial plans to leave the show where it was were scuppered after a sustained and ferocious campaign by its die-hard fan base. For 23 (soon to be 24) episodes, viewers have watched as the central characters — a cluster of eight strangers from around the globe who share a psychic connection — explore the human condition and fight for survival.

Sense8 was created by the Wachowskis, the American directorwriter- producer siblings best known for the Matrix film series. Both Wachowskis are transgender, with Lana having gone public about her transition in 2008, and Lilly in 2016, while filming season two (before she took a break from the show).
