“Serratos recalled an incident where she did an independent film, then read reviews that referred to her character, one of the four leads of the film, as “the Latina friend.” The other three leads, she said, were described in detail.
“I’m like, ’You just bastardized everything that I just f–king poured my heart and soul into,‘” Serratos explained. “Because yes, that is what I am, and I’m proud of it, but that is not all that I am… They didn’t mention anything at all about this character, who had basically saved her friend’s life. It was a very important person to talk about.”
