Netflix and USA Network’s hit crime series came to a satisfying finale last month but there’s more interesting news for fans of Queen of the South. This time Pote star Hemsky Madera, revealed the major changes he had to make in order to make his character a success.
Pote Galvez was first introduced to fans in the pilot episode of the series when he initially worked for Camila Vargas (played by Veronica Falcon).
While hiding out at Camila’s safe house, queen pin Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga) was introduced to Pote when he came up behind her with a blade to her throat teaching her the important lesson of never letting her guard down, even at a safe house.
Soon after the two became friends and Pote was hired to join Teresa as her trusted hit-man.
Despite being a man of very few words, he was loved by fans for his blind loyalty to Teresa and his determination to get the job done.
Surprisingly, Pote wasn’t written to be the character Hemsky portrayed him as and in a recent interview the actor opened up about the adjustments he made.

Hemsky revealed: “When I first got the role, I read the book. In the book, the guy was always by her side and, as a confidant, to protect her, and all that.”
“Then I saw the soap opera, and the actor who did a great job in it, but it was more comedic, It was more charactery, more of a cartoon.
“So, I went, ‘No. That’s not happening.’ So, I went more for the book and more making it real, just because the guy does what he does, doesn’t mean that he’s not a real person, with real feelings,” the actor confessed.
Hemsky stated to dailyactor.com: “So, the thing that I had to do from the beginning to portray Pote is not to judge him, but just to make him.
“That’s his job, he also has feelings, and he’s also a very good person. He just happens to kill people for a living.”
Throughout the series, fans saw as Pote expressed his feelings as a sicario, the best way he knew how.
In the season finale of Queen of the South, Pote was filled with rage and ready to get revenge after he saw Teresa’s lifeless body.
While on his way to escape with his pregnant girlfriend Kelly Anne Van Awken (Molly Burnett), Pote was stopped by police and arrested for driving a stolen vehicle.
He was unexpectedly sentenced and took a five-year plea deal for the crime, however that didn’t stop him from getting revenge.
Once released from jail, he made it his mission to kill Boaz Jimenez (Joseph T Campos) as Pote believed he was behind Teresa’s murder.
He tracked him down to Teresa’s house and the two battled it out in a brutal knife fight.
In the shocking scene Pote, who has multiple stab wounds, looked dead and, as Boaz thought he could make an exit, Pote tripped him up and fatally stabbed him.
Although it was actually Teresa’s lover James Valdez (Peter Gadiot) who shot her, Pote had other reasons to hate him.
Boaz tried to take over the queen pin’s businesses while she was in hiding, he killed King George (Ryan O’Nan) in season five and he kidnapped Kelly Anne while she was pregnant with Pote’s child.
With all this anger pent up, he was finally able to avenge his loved ones by fighting Boaz to death.
In the final scenes, fans were elated to see Pote reunite with the crew including Teresa who had faked her death to get away from the life of crime.
All episodes of Queen of South is available to stream on Netflix.
