Just a few years ago, Morty was a complete stranger to many. but, Stealing money, also known as La Casa De Papel in Spanish, changed things for him.

“Well, I’m an actor. Fortunately, nowadays, I can see that audiences all over the world are used to watching fairy tales. The audience is so clever that I consider it, wish and suppose, that they will be able to see me doing all the (other) work and separating the image of the professor.” ‘, shares Morty when asked if it will be a difficult task to get out of his shadows Stealing money Character difference. He adds, “I understand the character’s success because of the series. It was huge. But I don’t want to think that the audience will stay with just that image.”
