UPDATE 5:00PM PST
- The entire cast looks so good! Why do they hide Ivonne’s (Alba) under those grandma clothes. DANG!
- Gina says that you seldom get to opportunity to audition for character like Jane. “She’s empowered, fearless and A VIRGIN!”
UPDATE 5:11 PM PST
- The casting of this show was TOTALLY spot on. Didn’t realize the ensemble was so GOOFY!
- Also, they work out of set. Way to be efficient!?
- Season 2 sex scene???
- Andre Novedo finally gets to talk and I want it to never end. Her struggles are the same struggles that are reflected on the show and in real life. #MiGente
UPDATE 5:20 PM PST
- Ivonne “I represent the thousands of immigrants that come to this country and work so hard.”
UPDATE 5:43 PM PST
- The actors are so different from their characters! Yael (Petra) is apparently super nice in real life and Ivonne (Alba) is NOT a grandmother… go figure!
- The one thing the group says over and over again is that they are blessed. So genuine- can we be friends?
- Jennie Urman says that Louisa will be “coming back with a bang.” I totally called it!
UPDATE 5:53 PM PST
- That girl just asked the best question ever..which was good because the guy before her did not.
Q: How does Jennie Urman write and depict the Latin community so well seeing as she’s not a Latino?
A: You surround yourself with Latin staff and ask questions.
- In order to write for any community you must first “write for the human beings.”
UPDATE 6:00 PM PST
- That’s a wrap! Can I just say, I am dying for the next season to air! I can already tell there is much more drama to come!
