Standing in her way is snarky Garden Club leader, Rita (Lana Parrilla), and her loyal socialite friends, including the beautiful and entitled Brenda (Quiles).
Quiles was thrilled by the opportunity to be part of this show, sharing “To be given the chance to portray high society 1949 affluence as a Latina in Hollywood was a dream come true. You rarely see people of color in these roles, so I was honored that it came my way. After reading the script, I fell in love with Marc Cherry’s beautiful world and characters. Audiences are in for a treat.”
Quiles recently gained attention and fans for her appearance as the midday News Anchor ‘Ana’ alongside Ted Danson on the NBC laugher, Mr. Mayor, produced by Tina Fey.
