Actor Alvaro Morte who essays the role of The Professor in the megahit crime series Money Heist got emotional and had a breakdown on the sets during the last day of the shoot. The series was indeed an emotional roller coaster for him and other cast members. Alvaro plays the lead character who is the mastermind behind the heist operations in the series.

As Money Heist season 5 is coming soon, the finale will see Alvaro reprising his part. He is caught by inspector Alicia Sierra and is seen tortured by her in the trailer. The trailer shows the whole team stuck inside the Bank of Spain as The Professor, who is their guiding light, is now handcuffed and under Alicia’s mercy. The question is, will the red jumpsuit gang survive/function without the captain?

Alvaro, during an exclusive virtual set visit from Spain, issued a statement saying that he can't reveal how the story ends but he assured that “it is going to be filled with a lot of tension, action and exciting elements.” According to the Indian Express, he said, “And that’s very rewarding for an actor, but you have to get into that mindset and it’s quite exhausting, in a good way.”

Alvaro also expressed his gratitude and said the best memory he has is of his amazing team and the connection he has with his character. He said that he had a great time shooting for the whole series in Spain but also had tough times because of the intensity of certain action sequels. But the overall working experience was wonderful for him.

Alvaro expressed his grief on parting with the crew members and he said that it was no way easy for him. “I cried like there was no tomorrow (laughs). Yeah, there was a lot of crying, but I’m very grateful, very grateful,” he signed off as Sergio aka The Professor.
