The highly anticipated new season is finally here!
Rachel Smith chatted with America Ferrera on the important messages and representation in the series.
"It's a dream project, it's truly like a dream I didn't even know I could dream. Not just being a part of this story, but being in it with creators like Marvin and Linda, like getting to have an entire Latinx AD team, having a Latino DP and a Latina costume designer, and for Latinos directing, and creating this wonderland where nothing is off limits for us and to have the real power to tell the most authentic version of the story we're telling," Ferrera said.
Ferrera also touched on the personal meaning the show carries for her.
"It's literally the dream scenario. I don't know that I even thought I could dream this big when I was 16 dreaming of being an actress one day."
Karrie Martin Lachney, who plays Ana Morales, also shared her excitement for people watching the show for the first time.
"Everybody can relate to the issues that we're going through, no matter what part of life you're in, um, and I think that's what's so beautiful, is that we're really allowing you to walk into our home, you're the fly on the wall that is listening to everything that everybody actually wants to say in life, and then a Latino home is loud, it's crazy, it's Spanglish, you know what I mean, exactly how it is on the show, so I think you're really just getting a visual into our, our true authentic life," Lachney said.
Season two of Gentefied drops November 10 on Netflix.
