Zoe Walker played by Laura Haddock
Zoe Walker is a British librarian and the protagonist of the show. She goes off to Ibiza in search of what happened to her brother, a DJ, who disappeared twenty years ago. Ibiza was where her brother was living at the time of his disappearance, so Zoe goes to the picturesque city to find answers about what happened to her brother.
Zoe takes it upon herself to find answers about her brother’s death because Spanish authorities have no intention of doing so because of their laws.
Since this show has two timelines, the present and twenty years in the past, the younger Zoe Walker is played by India Fowler. Young Zoe was in her early teens when her brother took off for the island of Ibiza in Spain, and developed mental health issues shortly after.
Axel Collins played by Tom Rhys Harries
Axel Collins was Zoe Walker’s brother. As the son of a police officer, Axel’s dreams of becoming a famous DJ with a specialty in raves is kind of a problem. So, Axel moves to the island of Ibiza in Spain. His career skyrockets once he’s there, but is eventually killed.
It’s twenty years before Axel’s body is found, but soon it’s discovered he may have had ties to a drug cartel.
Axel does not have an actor playing his younger version, because he is dead in the present timeline.
Boxer played by Nuno Lopes
Boxer is the head of security for the Calafat family. Andreu Calafat is the man who owns the land Axel’s body was found on. Andreu is disturbed by the fact Axel’s body is found on his land and asks Boxer to investigate whether one of his family members was involved in the death of the DJ. Boxer ends up aiding Zoe since they’re both looking for the truth of what happened to Axel.

Young Kika is played by Zoe Mulheims in the past timeline.
Oriol Calafat played by Juan Diego Botto
Oriol is the son of Andreu, and therefore Kika’s brother. Oriol was briefly friends with Axel, however, their relationship didn’t last. When Axel died the two were closer to enemies than they were friends – this makes him a suspect.
Oriol is also deeply involved in the family business and fully expects to inherit it one day, which makes him being suspected of a murder even more frustrating to him.
Young Oriol is played by Paúl Moré in the past timeline.
Conchita Calafat played by Belén López
Conchita is the wife of Andreu, however, their relationship has been less than great for quite some time. So, Conchita has put a lot of her time and energy into the family business.

There is no young Conchita in the timeline of the past.
Marcus played by Daniel Mays
Marcus was one of Axel’s best friends. In fact, he was such good friends with Axel he moved with him from Britain to Ibiza along with Axel.
