latinxsource:

I’m Latina, but this role wasn’t originally written for a Latina girl – it was for a white girl. So by casting me, ABC is breaking the mold. They are opening doors to girls like me, and I hope they keep doing that. And I hope other networks keep doing that to open doors by giving Latina women these strong, powerful characters. Because we are strong, powerful women.
