Money Heist star Álvaro Morte aka The Professor now has over 11 million followers on Instagram. The Spanish actor celebrated the milestone in a rather unique manner. Álvaro took to his Instagram handle and posted a mirror selfie, but with a twist.
In the picture, Álvaro is sporting a beard, but a fake one. His caption read, “11M followers.I SEE YOUUUUU #fakebeard #partoftheprocess @rocchetti.luigi #boundless #sinlimites #elcano.” For the uninitiated, Álvaro’s bearded look is for his character Juan Sebastián Elcano in upcoming miniseries Boundless aka Sin límites.
Though Álvaro Morte’s post received a lot of love from his colleagues and fans, many also said he looked similar to another Money Heist character Helsinki, played by Darko Perić.
Earlier this week, the makers of Money Heist released a teaser announcing the release dates of its upcoming fifth and final season. Money Heist Season 4 ended on a cliff-hanger with cop Alicia Sierra nabbing The Professor at his hideout. While fans had been speculating whether she managed to overpower him, the teaser of season five did give answers.
In the teaser, we see The Professor being held hostage by Alicia Sierra. He is tied to a chair, unable to take his heist forward and coordinate with his gang that’s fighting the army and avenging the death of Nairobi. With no backup plan, will the gang give in is what forms the plot this time.
Money Heist Season 5 will be a 10-episode series releasing in two parts. While its volume one will arrive on September 3, the second part will premiere on December 3 on Netflix.
