Kayla Maisonet Talks Most Important Part of 'Stuck in the Middle'

Kayla Maisonet is opening up about just what Stuck in the Middle meant to her.

“It means everything to me that the show focuses on showcasing that [representation],” the 18-year-old actress, who played Georgie, shared with NKD magazine recently.

Kayla adds, “There’s been a huge gap between Stuck in the Middle and the last Latino Disney family, which was on Wizards of Waverly Place. It makes me so happy that kids can watch my show and see people that look like them.”

“Growing up, whenever I’d watch TV, it was mostly kids with blonde hair and blue eyes onscreen but never anyone that looked like me,” she continues. “Representation is so important and I think Stuck in the Middle does a great job at including it.”

One of the most memorable moments for Kayla, personally, was Georgie’s Quinceanera.

“We often show[ed] traditional cooking and the family speaking in Spanish but my favorite was when we showed the cultural tradition of having a Quinceañera,” Kayla says. “It’s things like this that people have commented on and reacted so positively about.”

If you missed it, Disney has confirmed that Stuck in the Middle will end with season three.
