Peep pics and quotes below…
On Taking On The Lead Role Of Blanca In ‘Pose’:
“I have had some really beautiful moments with Blanca. I’ve loved being able to build her at the beginning of the show and find that this woman is more similar to me than I first thought. I will say that a part of me has just let her go. It was an extremely emotional process to separate myself from Blanca and to let her story land where it needed to land, but it’s the perfect way to send her off into her future because her future looks very, very bright.”
On Advice She’d Give Her Younger Self:
“You better keep pumping, keep pumping until the stardust trickles off that heel.” I had to do so much work on myself, knowing that there was a world that was against me. As a child, I was always rambunctious, always confident, but still got knocked down. For me, if I could speak to myself at that time, I would make sure to instil all of the confidence into that person so that when they grow up, they won’t have anything to worry about.”
On Her New Apple TV+ Show With Maya Rudolph:
“I’m blessed with my team, we have had many conversations about what I want to delve into in order for people to see that other side of me. I think this was the perfect opportunity to show the range that I have as an actress. I think the show is the best choice because I get to do it with Maya Rudolph – an icon who’s been in the business for a long time. I love that I get to work alongside her and learn the ropes of comedy from her. I mean, I’m a funny girl myself, but it’s always good to be tagged alongside an icon like Maya Rudolph.”
On Her Broader Goals:
“My boyfriend and I are writing something now set in the sci-fi realm. I would love to have been a part of a Lara Croft movie or portray a lead in Indiana Jones or a James Bond movie. I love that there’s an action-packed storyline but also nuance in the fashion and sexiness of it all.”
