Cierra Ramirez & Tommy Martinez Talk Latinx Representation in 'Good Trouble'

Cierra Ramirez & Tommy Martinez Talk Latinx Representation in 'Good Trouble'

Cierra Ramirez and Tommy Martinez are opening up about showing representation on television for the Latinx community.

The two star in Good Trouble as Latinx people in the tech world.

“It’s amazing. It’s probably the most rewarding thing about being a part of Good Trouble and The Fosters. It instantly makes me such a fan and love the show,” Cierra told Seventeen. “That storyline in particular is really, really inspiring to me and if it can help inspire other women of color to get into tech or take a position where there aren’t many other women of color, then I think we’re doing our jobs.”

Tommy also dished that he personally identified with his character Gael and some of the things he goes through.

“I have nothing but positive feelings about that. I grew up surrounded by Venezuelans, and I was completely inundated with Latinos,” he said. “But stepping into that role and portraying that, I think I can relate that feeling of being anomalous, of him [Gael] being the only Latino person in that office and expressing himself and all of that with the feeling of being out here and just like kind of being alone.”

“How I had my roommates as well, but I kind of isolated myself, but still tried to focus on what it is I wanted to do,” Tommy added. “There’s change involved in Gael’s story and it’s definitely going to change views for the better.”

Tommy Martinez Opens Up About How He Relates To His 'Good Trouble' Character

Tommy Martinez, one of the new stars of Good Trouble, is opening up about how he relates to his character, Gael, on the series.

Speaking on a panel, the actor revealed that his bisexuality was what resonated closely with him.

“With his sexuality, in the places I grew up in, it was something that was never talked about, nor was it ever challenged,” Tommy shared.

He continues, revealing that he also had “an experience with a man maybe 10 years ago, and this is the first time that I’m saying that publicly…and throughout that whole time, I felt like I was put into the shadows, because the way that my community was, the way that they spoke about [LGBTQ people], [the] Hispanic community, it’s not only just them, but they are very religious and strict on what they believe it, but same with many other people in the world and here in America.”

Tommy adds, “The way that they talked about homosexuality or even just experiencing something like that with slurs or what have you, my friend said the same thing, so I had nobody to talk to about [my own experience].”

“I kept that inside the whole time until now. And to have this opportunity to portray this character and this community, I felt, especially in front of you wonderful people, I felt maybe this is the best place to express that. And so I saw myself completely in Gael’s shoes. And so when I got that audition notice and dove deeper into the character, I just felt right with it.”

Good Trouble airs Tuesdays on Freeform.
