On February 2, Netflix dropped a new big-budget sci-fi series called Altered Carbon, which is an adaptation of a novel of the same name.
Set in the year 2384, the series focuses Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman), a political operative with mercenary skills, wakes up 250 years after his sleeve (physical body) is terminated, and he is given the choice to either spend the rest of time in prison for his crimes or to help solve the murder of one of the wealthiest men in the world.
And while the series itself is decent, I came out of it asking myself only one thing: who the hell is that gorgeous actress who plays the take-no-shit police officer Kristin Ortega?
The actress, Martha Higareda, is a 34-year-old Mexican actress, producer and screenwriter who appeared in a number of Mexican projects before gaining recognition in the United States. Prior to her starring role in Altered Carbon, Higareda had appeared in American films such as McFarland, USA and Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball.
However, we have a feeling that after her role in Altered Carbon (boosted by a few *key* scenes, if you know what I mean), Higareda is going to find a lot more work in the American film industry.
