I think that diversity is such an important thing.  I feel so fortunate to be on a show that understands that importance.  I do think it is something that needs to be discussed.  As this new generation coming to Hollywood and in television, I’m overjoyed to be part of a show that’s aware of what it can add to the story and the different elements and different perspectives that it can give, just like casting someone with a different ethnicity.  Yes, Alberto and Emeraude weren’t written as ethnic, but in casting diverse actors in these roles, it brings interest and more relatability to the show.  Honestly, it is a more accurate portrayal of reality as we know it.  Ideally, I hope in the future this trend will continue and diversity will no longer be a point of contention but just something normal that almost isn’t discussed anymore because it’s become the norm.
