Now relatives of the deceased, who were on site in Mexico to film the series, say they want an investigation amid claims of squalid working conditions.

According to The Daily Beast, friends of Raymundo Garduño Cruz and Juan Francisco González Aguilar, known professionally as “Paco Mufote,” are taking action against Netflix and the independent production company behind the show.

They claim the cast members complained about subpar transportation and logistics.

Liliana Conlisk Gallegos, a friend of Mufote’s who has worked in the film industry and is an artist and scholar, told The Daily Beast she was “heartbroken and outraged” when she heard allegations that the crew might have been taken advantage of, to save money .

“Paco touched the hearts of everyone he ever met, he was a great actor with a strong track record,” Gallegos told The Daily Beast.

“He loved acting and making music more than anything in the world, and he devoted himself to it even though he often suffered from economic difficulties.”

“He sacrificed for his love of acting,” she added.

“It fills me with anger that there are reports of abuse and exploitation being shared by people involved in the production,” she said, per The Daily Beast.

“I would like to request that this be investigated further. If nothing happened, there should be no problem with providing the information.”

“It pains me to think that he was taken advantage of, forced to work in subpar conditions, especially for a multi-millionaire company like Netflix,” Gallegos continued.

The Sun previously reported that the vehicle went off the road before overturning while traveling on a desert road near Mulege, Mexico on the Baja California Sur peninsula, on Thursday, June 16, 2022, officials said.

A spokesman for the world’s largest streaming service told The Daily Beast that the accident did not happen on set and that two other cast members and four crew members were injured and in stable condition.

The identity of the injured has not yet been released.

The rep added that Netflix’s thoughts are with the families of the dead actors and that Redrum, the production company behind the series, has temporarily halted filming.

The Sun has reached out to Netflix for further clarification but has yet to receive a response.

According to the Netflix website Based on a comic book series by Mark Millar and Peter Gross, The Chosen One centers on a 12-year-old boy who “learns that he is the returned Jesus Christ, destined to save mankind.”

On Friday, novelist Rick Zazueta shared a scathing Facebook post calling for an investigation and blaming the Mexican film industry.

“People who come to Baja California to exploit natural and human resources do nothing but bloat their wallets, egos and portfolios,” Zazueta fumed.

In his post, Zazueta claimed, “For weeks, people close to this production have known the logistics were terrible. The actors keep complaining about how badly they are being treated in the field of transportation and logistics right now.”

He also claimed that the talent “was transported like cattle to save a few pesos.”

Zazueta wrote, “We cannot make the mistake of allowing this, we cannot allow these gentlemen’s deaths to be in vain.”

“The film industry needs to change, we have once again paid a very high price in this country, but we must uphold the rights of the deceased.”

Meanwhile actor and director Fernando Bonilla went to twitter to mourn his friend Cruz, with whom he spoke hours before his death, he claimed.

“It is imperative that production reports how many rest hours the driver who lost control of the truck had,” wrote Bonilla.

“I’m devastated,” Bonilla continued in one thread. “Ray was an actor, director, and cultural executive who made Tijuana his home. He was a festive and generous friend.”

Filming for the show reportedly began in April this year.
