Camila Vargas (played by Veronica Falcon) has been a formidable feature in Queen of the South ever since the very beginning of the USA Network drama. The cartel queenpin has faced her fair share of action-packed storylines, from the betrayal of righthand man James Valdez (Peter Gadiot) to a bitter rivalry with series lead Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga). But now fans will be able to get to see her in a very different role.
Falcon had already teased a move away from Queen of the South on her Instagram page – hinting at a “transformation”.
Taking to her account on Wednesday, she shared a snap of her having her nails done with the caption: “#becomingcatherine …Here we go!
“Starting the transformation for….soon to be announced [wink emoji] I’ll keep you posted, promise. #backtowork finally! #grateful #goodnight.”
And it didn’t take long for fans of the USA Network drama to presume she was talking about reprising the role of Camila.
The Haunting of Hill House star Jordane Christie has also put pen to paper to star in the show as detective Vern.
The Politician and Switched at Birth star BK Cannon will also star as Dee – another fussy daughter alongside Falcon.
And Shadowhunters actor Matthew Daddario will take on the part of Scooter – the lover of the aforementioned Rita.
The drama is yet to receive a release date from CBS but there is good news regarding Queen of the South’s highly-anticipated return.
