Who Does Diego Play in Narcos: Mexico?

Narcos: Mexico opens the series in Sinaloa also known as the birthplace of “Mexican dope smuggling”.

We first see Felix – a nice family man and local policeman – arrive at a church to arrest Rafa. However, all is not as it seems and it turns out that Rafa and Felix are on the same side.

Following ‘Operation Condor’ (the government invaded Sinaloa to eradicate the drug trade), Felix and Rafa, along with Felix’s family make it out of Sinaloa and begin growing Rafa’s Sensimilla (seedless Marijuana) in Guadalajara.

As the series unfolds Felix grows more attached to his dream of building an empire and you see some character changes along the way.
