“I think the most important thing about Veronica being Latina is that the Lodges are a sophisticated, intelligent, powerful family,” Camila said. “You rarely see Latinos associated with those qualities in the media. Usually, it’s someone who is underprivileged or uneducated.”

“Obviously there are different walks of life, but you need to show that range [on screen] to give justice to a community and represent them accurately,” she added. “Latinas are known for being passionate and having a fierce energy, and I think Veronica has all those qualities. It makes sense for her to be Latina.”
