I recently interviewed actor Nicholas Gonzalez about better representation for Latinos in the entertainment industry.
In my Mediaplanet article, “The Good Doctor” actor also discusses how he celebrates his heritage and gives back to the community.
On “The Good Doctor,” Gonzalez’s character was the supporting role to the white, male lead. He says his character was a great cultural representation of how there’s more work to be done.
“We want to see these characters,” he says. “They’re not just there to highlight the white lead character. We need more leads. We need more stories about not the second guy, not the fourth, fifth character down the line.”
