"My view of myself doesn’t change. I know who I am. I’m Cuban American, both my parents are Cuban–one was a little browner than the other one. That’s who I am. I feel sorry that it’s taken so long for the film industry to figure it out and to catch up."  —Gina Torres. She's my tía (in my head).

YOU KICK SOME ASS GIRL!" Gina Torres (on working on Firefly) :D
