Victor is a police officer used to working in the streets. He's cheeky, shrewd, tough, and resourceful ... he knows how to improvise. He's resistant to authority, perhaps because he grew up without a father. Unlike his partner, he has experience as an undercover cop. When he thinks he's right he tries to prove it... or he does what he has to do, no matter what others think. He's determined, confident and sometimes a bit stubborn ... He has no patience for someone as inexperienced in undercover work as his partner ... especially when he discovers that he is his superior ...
Conoce a Víctor...
Víctor es un oficial de policía acostumbrado a trabajar en las calles. Es fresco, astuto, duro, e ingenioso... él sabe cómo improvisar. Es resistente a la autoridad, tal vez debido a que creció sin un padre. A diferencia de su compañero, Víctor tiene experiencia como un policía encubierto. Cuando piensa que tiene razón trata de demostrarlo o hace lo que tiene que hacer, sin importarle lo que otros piensan. Es decidido, seguro y, a veces un poco terco... No tiene paciencia para alguien tan inexperto en el trabajo encubierto como su compañero, sobre todo cuando descubre que es su superior...

Victor is an undercover cop who infiltrates a hospital as a male nurse. Yon González plays Victor Garcia on Bajo Sospecha.
Victor is a police officer who is used to being on the streets. Cheeky, sly, tough, resourceful... he knows how to improvise. He is quite resistant to the authority, perhaps because he grew up without a father. Unlike his partner in this case, he has experience as an undercover cop. When Victor thinks he is right, he either tries to prove his point with reason, or he gets down to work right away, no matter what others think. He is determined, confident and sometimes a bit stubborn... What he does not appreciate is when they partner him up with someone who has no experience as an undercover cop... let alone when he discovers that she is his superior..
1. How have you been dealing this season with your change of character, now playing a nurse?
Whether you're a nurse or whatever you have to be, you put on the costume, me and my character in this case, and you face the situations.
2. What’s it like to play someone who is pretending to play someone else?
In the scenes you have to seek the truth and be as credible as possible. These are people who you have to hide from, but behave in a positive way, without anyone suspecting anything. You have to go unnoticed.
3. Have you been guided by real specialists?
The thing is that my character doesn’t have much to do with nursing itself, as in other series with hospitals, so I don’t need to learn a lot of odd words because Victor doesn’t need them. There are very few scenes in surgery where I’m there as a nurse, but there is an assistant that helps us and shows us what we must do in the scenes. For example, in one scene I had to break a capsule and fill a syringe to inject a person, and she told me how to do it correctly.
4. When do the actors get to know the end of the show?
Reading it at home (laughs). You know the end of the show when you sit on the couch at home, read the script and say, "they kill me off and they didn’t tell me anything!" (Laughs). It’s fun because you're also investigating your colleagues all the time, to see if they do something, see where they go… But I don’t think the killer even knows.
5. How is it working with people like Concha Velasco, Lluís Homar, Gonzalo de Castro...?
We have a wonderful cast and that makes everything more comfortable and easy. They give you everything you need, they are very receptive and wonderful, I'm learning a lot from them.
6. Do you remember any anecdote from this season?
In a scene where I had to go down the elevator shaft, I tried to make it more realistic and so I went down nine stories with my bare hands, without the help of the rope, which was there for safety. Of course, my hands got screwed up after that (laughs).
7. ‘El Internado’, 'Grand Hotel', ‘Bajo Sospecha’... you can be considered the Atresmedia boy, right?
(Laughs) Given that almost every show I've done in my career has been for Antena 3, if it weren’t for them I don’t know where I would be right now. Hopefully we’ll keep working together for many more years.
8. How have you changed over the years?
Fortunately, ever since I started my career on 'SMS', I've gone from one job to the next one, and so far I haven’t had to go knocking on doors asking for a job, thanks to perseverance. And I hope it stays that way (laughs).
9. What’s it like to keep linking project after project?
We have just finished filming ‘Bajo Sospecha’, and now I have another project in August, another TV show also for Antena 3, so there are indeed a few months off work between projects.
10. How does an actor feel when they renew their show for another season?
It is easier because you already know the composition of your character and the audience knows him. In the second season, I’ve had to return to the character that I’d built and to the relationships he had before, as the one with my father, and try to evolve in those relationships. Needless to say, this being a series of action, everything happens very fast.
Yon González talks to El Mundo about his role as Victor, what he has to do to prepare for his roles, and why he doesn't like social media that much.

He began his journey in acting in 2006 with SMS, a series made by young people for young people, where some current stars like Mario Casas, Amaia Salamanca, Raul Peña, María Castro got their start... read more here...However, although a decade ago these actors already appeared in promotional shots with their phones in hand, now in 2016 Yon González completely ignores social networks: "It seems that communication is wider, but [social networks] have created fake relationships. I'm not interested in them because the real connections with people have been lost," he explains. "Now everybody has free phone calls, why don’t you call? It’s free," he says ironically, admitting that he once joined one social network: "I created a profile on Instagram and thought, ‘what am I going to post here? Nobody is gonna be interested.’ Whoever needs something can call me."
The actor attends this interview with El Mundo in the middle of shooting a scene from the second season of Bajo Sospecha (which airs its sixth episode tonight on Antena 3 at 22.30h). Still dressed as Victor and sitting cozily at the Montalban Hospital morgue, he jokes about this place and his tiredness from the work pace he follows. "This place is a bit like me... dead."
After SMS, he grew up in El Internado, he stayed at the Gran Hotel, and now stars in Bajo Sospecha. The Antena 3 boy. "Fortunately, so fat I haven’t had to go knocking on doors asking for a job. Work comes up thanks to perseverance, doesn’t it?" He asks all convinced. Ever since he started, he premieres a new TV show or season every year. On Bajo Sospecha, González plays Victor, a "nice policeman, although he is a jerk later” says the actor, who pretends to be a nurse to investigate a series of crimes. "Bajo Sospecha is not a show like Central Hospital, where you have to know a lot of weird words. Luckily my character doesn’t need to. Today I did have to give an injection to... Well, I was going to say who but..." he stops just in time before he reveals secrets of the plot.
The mystery is present throughout the interview: "We –actors- know the end of the show when we sit on the couch at home and read the script: 'They kill me and they didn’t tell me anything!’ (Laughs). "You're also investigating your colleagues all the time, to see if they do something, see where they go", he is talking about a show where the actors don’t know the name of the killer until the last moment.
Although the success he has achieved has been the result of movies and popular series, Yon González defends independent films. "The project that I worked on with my brother [Aitor Luna] was the best I've done. It’s called Matar el Tiempo, and nobody has seen it because it was not commercially distributed, but it's a shame that movies like this one, really good ones, don’t work. Then there are other movies that do work and you are like 'does this really work?’ I don’t understand people," he says.
Lover of the difficult and even though, he acknowledges, "sometimes there are months of no work", at age 29, the actor from Gipuzcoa now faces a new project that will begin in August: The Cathedral of the Sea. Until then, Yon González is clear: "Now I need some time off to disconnect and then back again to a crazy pace."
NOT ON “BUSCANDO EL NORTE” BUT IN THE WAR OF AUDIENCES
One of Yon González's biggest hits was the film Perdiendo el Norte, which Antena3 took advantage of and created a TV version. "They didn’t call me at all, but the movie was enough for me," says the actor about this project in which he does not participate and which was released last Wednesday. Buscando el Norte -the name of the show-, joined the world of audiences with excellent results: it managed to surpass the mighty Bertin Osborne, going over 3.4 million viewers. Also on Friday, Antena 3 premiered two other shows: Dos Días y Una Noche, with Susanna Griso and the second season of Allí Abajo, a show that was that time’s most watched program where it also debuted the new José Mota on TVE1. Meanwhile, Telecinco released Got Talent on Saturday night. Bajo Sospecha, however, continues to go strong every Tuesday night alternating leadership with Big Brother: 48 Hrs.
Yon González and Olivia Molina describe the relationship between Victor and Belén in this video interview with Antena3. At first Belén feels betrayed by Victor when she finds out that he is really an undercover cop. She had depended on him professionally as a nurse, to help her with difficult situations in the operating room.. But as the two work together to solve the case, they realize a connection exists.. And their relationship intensifies..

I posted some Season 1 deleted scenes the other day.. here are the subtitled versions of those same seasons. Enjoy!
The first season of Bajo Sospecha was originally supposed to have 10 episodes. Due to programming issues the season was shortened to 8 episodes. Many minutes of taping that were deleted in order to shorten the series to the desired number of episodes. Here are some of the deleted scenes with Yon González. They set up much of the back story for what we saw on screen. For more deleted scenes with other characters go to Antena 3 Exclusive Scenes.
Victor finds Laura listening in on a conversation between Carmen and another person. Surprised, he says "You didn't tell me you had planted the microphone in the house." She says with a smile " I knew that you had put the microphone in my purse, I simply forgot my purse at the house.. "
Victor goes to pick up Bosco at his house. There he finds Bosco at the makeshift alter he has made for Alicia, crying. In the car Victor asks Bosco whether he is sad because he misses Alicia.. Bosco, despondently nods yes.
Laura wants to know how Victor found out information about Inés' husband. He tells her it doesn't matter how he got it. She tells him she knows he slept with her... a little jealousy??
This is a fairly significant scene which was eliminated from season 1 of Bajo Sospecha. Here, Victor strengthens his relationship with both Emi and Oscar. He asks Emi where he can buy some drugs. She directs him to Oscar who is suspicious at first, but then becomes friendly with Victor.
In this deleted scene we find out that German knew that Victor and Inés had spent time together. He tells Victor that Bosco had seen him leave Inés in the evening.
Victor infiltrates a hospital to investigate a disappearance and murder
The first images of Season 2 of Bajo Sospecha were screened at the MIM Series Festival. This season, the action moves to a hospital in Madrid, which is the site of a disappearance and murder. Victor is once again asked to infiltrate the scene of the crime. He is helped by Commissioner Casas and Vidal. But this time he also collaborates with the French police as one of the victims is a French citizen. The new season of Bajo Sospecha features Concha Velasco, Gonzalo de Castro and Olivia Molina, among others.
Bajo Sospecha, Yon González' current project, is a detective-drama series which follows a single crime/plot during a given season. The series produced by Atresmedia and Bambú Producciones, focuses on protagonists (a detective team and their superior) who are faced with a different crime each season. The series first debuted in February of 2015 with the two detectives assigned as undercover cops infiltrating a community to solve the disappearance of a child from a small town. Aside from the mystery of the season, the producers have said that the series will also focus on relationships and interaction between the detectives and their colleagues including the police commissioner who is played by veteran actor, Luis Homar. The series has been compared to Broadchurch, a British series starring David Tennant. The popularity of the show in Spain prodded airing of the series in several other Spanish language markets and also in Italy where it garnered a large following.
