Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

Jul 6, 2020

Diane Guerrero (Orange Is the New Black, Jane the Virgin, Superior Donuts) is multi-layered and super impressive. She has a MAJOR story. Her parents emigrated to the US from Colombia before she was born and when she was 14, they were deported.

I won't tell you the whole story; Diane will.

Her experiences led her to be an impactful activist for immigrant rights and social equality.

We talk about all of it.

Join us to hear about:

  • Her childhood
  • Fear, insecurity, anxiety and truth
  • The LatinX experience in the US
  • Immigration reform
  • Social justice
  • Black Lives Matter
  • What "defund the police" REALLY means
  • Up + down experiences as an actor
  • Playing Maritza on Orange Is the New Black
  • Playing Lina on Jane the Virgin
  • Playing Jane on Doom Patrol (watch it on HBO Max)
  • A private joke with Joivan Wade
  • Will Smith, Michelle Obama, John Leguizamo
