Isabella Gomez Talks Elena's Love Story on Netflix's 'One Day at a Time'

Isabella Gomez shows off a little leg on the red carpet at the season two premiere of Netflix’s One Day at a Time held at ArcLight Cinemas on Wednesday night (January 24) in Hollywood.

The 19-year-old actress, who plays Elena in the series, was joined by co-stars Todd Grinnell, Justina Machado, Rita Moreno, Marcel Ruiz and Stephen Tobolowsky at the event.

Speaking with Variety at the event, Isabella opened up about Elena’s story in the new season, after coming out as a lesbian to her family in the season one finale.

“This season is all about: it doesn’t matter who you like it’s just who you like,” she shared. “We see the family trying to help her get a girlfriend. We see grandma giving her flirting tips and Alex making fun of her just like any other family would work.”

Executive producer Gloria Calderon Kellett added that they “really tried to stick to what would be just a good love story…What is it like when you’re awkward and nerdy the way Elena is.”

“We just lean so much on our LGBTQ writers to make sure we weren’t falling into any tropes. I hope people will be very satisfied with the way we talk about it.”

One Day at a Time Season 2 premieres on Friday, January 26th.
