She opened up about not being cast in the series

Heidi Klum has revealed why she was so upset with Sofía Vergara over the recent Netflix series, Griselda.

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few months, you'll know that the iconic Modern Family actor has starred in one of the most highly-anticipated series of the year so far.

And it's clear the six-part series didn't disappoint as Netflix viewers have since rushed to social media to praise the new drama inspired by true story as the 'best TV show they’ve ever seen'. Check out the official trailer here:

Inspired by real events, this fictional dramatisation comes from the creative minds who brought us Narcos, with the Modern Family star taking on the role of Queenpin, Griselda Blanco, and her journey from Medellín to becoming 'the Godmother' of Miami's drug empire.

Based on Blanco's life, the show promises to show 'a lethal blend of unsuspected savagery and charm' that helped her become one of the biggest druglords in the US.

It also features an all-Latin cast including the likes of Alberto Guerra as Dario, Vanessa Ferlito as Maria Gutierrez, Martín Rodríguez as Rivi Ayala, Alberto Ammann as Alberto Bravo and Gabriel Sloyer as Diaz.

However, one person it did not feature was America's Got Talent judge, Heidi.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight earlier this week, the 50-year-old model opened up about not being cast with her co-judge Sofía in the series.

"I was upset because I was like, 'Why couldn’t I have been one of your cousins?' I could have been a cousin that doesn’t speak, because obviously I don’t speak Spanish," Heidi revealed.

She went on to joke: "But I could have just been, you know, not speaking! I was upset.

"I could have also been one of those gorgeous girls! I would have loved to. But she said, 'Nein'."

The series was created by Eric Newman with Andrés Baiz directing every episode, with Baiz revealing that Vergara’s physical transformation was one of the toughest aspects of the show.

He told Tudum: "What we decided was that she had to be different than Sofia, but we shouldn’t imitate Griselda Blanco."

Newman agreed that matching Blanco’s hair and makeup should not have come at the expense of Vergara’s performance, saying: "She sat in makeup every day for hours! She was in every scene."

Not only did the star wear five different wigs for the time jumps from the 70s into the 80s, but she also donned prosthetic eyebrow covers and false eyebrows glued on top.

Vergara also wore a prosthetic nose and a plate of teeth that were slightly bucked and yellowed out because Griselda smokes throughout the series too.

"It’s no longer the actor," Newman added. "No one ever saw her on set as Sofia by the time she left her makeup trailer.

"She was Griselda."

She sure was.

Griselda is currently available to stream on Netflix now.
