In the end, they walk off together. Where do you think they went?
[Laughs] I’ve got no idea. There was one take we did where we slapped each other’s asses. It didn’t get in the final cut.
I don’t know, they probably went to my house because I live just on the other side of that bridge. Maybe they just went off and had a cup of tea. Or maybe they got on a plane to some glorious destination. I don’t know. (X)
During an interview in the set’s evidence room, Beatriz, who played Sofia Vergara’s character’s sister on “Modern Family” earlier this year, teared up as she described what it means to her to play a Latina whose ethnicity is not the butt of the jokes or the essence of her character.
“I remember as a kid watching TV and looking for myself and not being able to find myself very often,” she said. “There were very few shows I could see myself. I get a little emotional about it because it’s very important. Back in the day, people would go to theater to watch the human story. Now we’re watching it from our houses; to know that there are people who are watching it who can see themselves is a good feeling. I don’t talk about being Latina every day. I also don’t talk about what kind of deodorant I use. It’s something that happens or is a part of me. And it’s the same on the show. It’s almost monumental in its normalcy.”"
