Emmylou Diaz Is The Only Latinx Woman In The Writer’s Room

Imagine getting your MFA in acting at Harvard and then moving to Los Angeles only to find that the parts you're auditioning for were either the Chola or the gangbanger? Screenwriter, Emmylou Diaz, whose credits include Jane The Virgin and Charmed, decided to take a writing class one day after realizing that she wasn’t being taken seriously as an actress. But what would you do if you got a job that turned into a new career? A career that gave you the opportunity to write on some of America’s most successful shows? Would you just be grateful for the chance to do something that only one-fourth of one percent of the US population gets to do? Or would you take this opportunity to write the parts you’d hoped for back when you were an actress?
