Neymar Becomes A Monk In Netflix Series Money Heist

Brazil football superstar Neymar, takes his acting role in the hugely popular Spanish series ‘La casa de papel’ (Money Heist), one of his favourite television escapes.

While a decision regarding his future was yet to be decided by Tuesday 27 August, the flamboyant Brazilian has been confirmed as a new member of the team behind “La Casa de Papel” (English name ‘Money Heist’), reportedly one of his favourite TV series.

The 27-year old is lined up to play the character of a monk in episodes of the third season of the popular Spanish Netflix series.

Last November, the player posted a cryptic photo on social media of him dressed up in a red jumpsuit and a Dalí mask, along with his teammate Kylian Mbappé.

He appears in episodes 6 and 8 of the latest season, although these were initially aired without the footage of Neymar in July, as they awaited news on the accusations of rape to be resolved.

Once the case against him was dismissed for lack of evidence, Netflix re-added the scenes including the player for viewers to enjoy in full.


The Spanish production, which follows the ambitious plans of a criminal gang, broke audience records with its third installment, seeing more than 34 million viewers worldwide in the first seven days after its premiere.

It is understood that the scenes of the Brazilian player, which will appear for the first time in the series, were recorded at the beginning of the year.
