"I don’t want to be hired for being ambiguous. I want to be hired for who the f**k I am." https://t.co/3lhBRKlC3U— Entertainment Tonight (@etnow) May 27, 2021
Ramos, 29, (who is of Puerto Rican descent) was warned early on that he should do his best to hide his ethnicity and try and fit into a broader category to avoid being typecast by casting director and producers.
"Folks would say to me that if you grow your hair out and speak in American Standard, you can be more ethnically ambiguous; you won’t be in the 'Latino box,'I thought that shit was a box, as opposed to being a superpower and just who I am. I believed that [box] shit for a little bit. But I don’t want to be hired for being ambiguous. I want to be hired for who the fuck I am."
