Who portrays Luis Miguel in his biopic? 

Multi-platinium recording artist, Luis Miguel is portrayed by Diego Boneta. You’ve probably seen the Mexican-American actor and singer in famous shows such as Scream Queens, 90210, and Pretty Little Liars. And if you were a fan of the original Mean Girls and watched Mean Girls 2 to see if it lived up to the first one’s fame, you would definitely recognize him as one of the main characters in the film. 

In prepping for the 13-part series, Diego spent a lot of time with Luis Miguel himself trying to get the role down packed. He even lost 24 pounds in a stretch of executing Luis Miguel’s character. Not to mention he looks very similar to the star himself! Acting so closely with the artist allowed him to fully embody his part. Diego even performed every song in the biopic.
