Jaime Lorente 'El Cid' Set Photos Surface, GF Maria Pedraza Visits Him On Set

Jaime Lorente is fully suited in chainmail armor while shooting an elaborate sword fight for his new Amazon Prime series El Cid (English translation: The Lord) in Borox, Toledo, Spain. These pictures were taken this past March but were recently released.

The 28-year-old actor was visited by his girlfriend Maria Pedraza, who kept warm in a puffer jacket. She was also seen chatting on her iPhone and with some of Jamie‘s co-stars and on-set crew.

El Cid tells one of the most fascinating times in Spanish history, the epic story of a Castilian nobleman and war hero in medieval Spain named Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, aka El Cid (Lorente). The series, which will feature two seasons of six episodes, will focus on the figure of Cid as a person, in an Iberian peninsula plagued by cultures between the Muslim and Christian kingdoms. The super production boasts more than 4,000 square meters of sets, a team of more than 200 people and 11,000 extras. Accompanying Jaime in the series, which will be released later this year, will be Carlos Bardem (Count León), Juan Echanove (Bishop), Elia Galera (Queen Sancha la Bella), José Luis García-Pérez (King Fernando I el Grande), Alicia Sanz (Infanta Urraca), Lucía Guerrero (Jimena), Fran Ortiz (Sancho el Fuerte) and Ginés García Millán (Rey Ramiro de Navarra), among others.

Jaime, 28, and Maria, 24 star together in the smash streaming hits Elite and Money Heist, both of which are available on Netflix. Earlier this month, they were spotted honoring frontline workers.

Money Heist's Jaime Lorente & Maria Pedraza Grab Sweet Treats In These Throwback Photos

Money Heist and Elite stars and off-screen couple Jaime Loren and Maria Pedraza step out for some fun in the sun in Madrid, Spain in these throwback photos from February 2020. Jaime, 28, and Maria, 24, went on a motorcycle ride together and stopped to get a frozen treat during their outing. On the back of her jacket was an embroidered design featuring Beast from the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast.

If you didn’t know, Jaime is a published author! You can buy his book of poetry called “A propósito de tu boca”, which translates to “About your mouth”. The poems, which he’s written since he was in school, reveals his vision of love and his way of experiencing and living it.

In the book, two very extreme worlds coexist in Jaime’s most intimate thoughts, one very “white” and the other darker. Loosely translated, Jaime dedicated the book “to all my men and all my women, especially two”.

“I think on an artistic level, it’s one of the most emotional things that has ever happened to me. I’ve been writing since I was little and I always had the idea of publishing my poems,” Jaime once told Elle España. “If someone wants to know me sincerely, I think they can read this book, because it is absolutely me.”
