Dallas meets Dexter: A serial killer mix “maid” Latin style!
What’s the best role you played so far?
My best role was on a show called Daybreak with Taye Diggs, which didn’t get seen. I was Lady M, playing the wife of the mayor. I had something like 6 episodes and it was fabulous but unfortunately very few people saw it.
You’re also playing in another popular TV series, The Secret Life of the American Teenager – what appeals to you about this show?
Yes, I play a very liberal grandmother whose teenage granddaughter is pregnant and is sent to me to sort of hide from the shame while she goes through her pregnancy. I absolutely love this show because it deals with a lot of teenage issue – drugs, sex, pregnancy, meanness among kids and bullying. I’m having a lot of fun on the set. I wear high-heels, tight jeans and fake eye-lashes…this grandmother role is the sexiest role I’ve played!
What other upcoming projects are you working on?
I’m going to LAByrinth Theatre Company in New York for this summer to play “Dark Matter,” one of my husband’s (Oliver Mayer) plays, which will be fun. I also have a movie coming out hopefully in the fall. It’s a spoof of Paranormal Activity I did with Marlon Wayans. It’s a comedy. Right now the working title is Smart Ass, but it might change.
How have you maintained your attitude to withstand the ups and downs of this industry, particularly being a woman and being a Latina artist in this business?
I always keep a really good sense of humor and I try to keep a voice. I’ve been lucky because even though I have played a lot of maids, I never played anything that I don’t want to do.
