A SPANISH star from a hit Netflix show is in fact related to local legend Edward Jenner. 

Michelle Jenner, who currently stars as Keila in the spin-off of Money Heist, Berlin, is a direct descendent of the Berkeley born physicist.

Edward Jenner pioneered the concept of vaccines and created the world's first vaccine. 

It was during the height of the Covid pandemic when Michelle Jenner's links to the physicist were uncovered by national Spanish media. 

Michelle Jenner is well-known in Spain after starring in Spanish TV show Los Hombres de Paco, playing Queen Isabel I in the show of the same name, as well as voicing Hermione Granger in the Spanish versions of the first four Harry Potter movies.
