Are Paz Vega and Penelope Cruz Related to Each Other? Do They Share the Same Blood?

Paz Vega, a cast member of Netflix’s Kaleidoscope, is speculated to be related to another Spanish actress Penelope Cruz as they have a similar face structure. However, they’re not. The two actresses do not share the same blood.

Kaleidoscope on Netflix is a one-of-a-kind show in which you can watch the episodes in any order and they will all add up to the finale. Despite being a thriller, the story is written in such a way that the audience can not only pick up the events at any point in the story but also that everything is so well-organized that you never get confused about the backstory or intentions of any character.

However, apart from the action-packed sequences, this show is even more intriguing because it is a non-linear series that leads to the finale regardless of the order in which viewers watch it. Combine all of that with stellar onscreen performances from a talented ensemble that includes Giancarlo Esposito, Rufus Sewell, Paz Vega, and Tati Gabrielle, and the series’ quality skyrockets.

Since the release of the show, Paz Vega, who plays the role of Ava Mercer, has been in the spotlight due to her performance in the series. However, many people were shocked by her appearance and claimed she look exactly like Penelope Cruz. As a result, fans and followers have been curious to know about Paz’s relationship with Penelope and wonder if Paz Vega and Penelope Cruz are related.

In some way, the booth actress’ look seems relatable whereas many people speculated they look like they might be sisters but sadly they are not related to each other.

Oh yes. Yes. Many times. Many times. But it’s a beautiful compliment. She’s a beautiful woman, an amazing actress. She’s an example for people who want to work here for foreign people. I know that she’s a beautiful, beautiful woman inside and outside…It’s a great compliment…Many people, even journalists they confuse with her.
