Izabella Alvarez has pledged allegiance to the republic…
The 16-year-old Latina actress will star opposite Luke Mitchell and Stella Baker in the CW drama pilotThe Republic of Sarah.
Alvarez joins a list of cast additions that includes Nia Holloway and Hope Lauren.
Hailing from Jeffrey Paul King, Marc Webb, CBS Television Studios and studio-based Fulwell 73, The Republic of Sarahpilot will be directed and executive produced by Kat Candler.
Here’s the description of the pilot: Faced with the destruction of her town at the hands of a greedy mining company, rebellious high school history teacher Sarah Cooper (Baker) utilizes an obscure cartographical loophole to declare independence. Now Sarah must lead a young group of misfits as they attempt to start their own country from scratch.
Alvarez will play Maya. After her mother’s imprisonment in Los Angeles, Maya is sent to Greylock to live with her estranged father. She struggles to adapt to life in rural New England at first, but with some help from her mentor, Sarah, she takes the first steps toward finding herself in her new home.
Alvarez’s breakout came in a recurring role in season 4 of Shameless. She went on to recur in Westworld, as well as appearances in Disney XD’s Walk the Prank,ABC’s Raised by Wolves and Disney+ family comedy Magic Camp. She currently voices the lead spunky character, Ronnie Anne Santiago, in Nickelodeon’s The Casagrandes, and will next be seen on the big screen in her first leading role and her debut featureCollisions.
Rosa Salazar is coming undone for a special preview…
The 34-year-old Latina actress is set to appear at the Paley Center for Media’s 13th annual PaleyFest Fall TV Previews.
The fest will take place on September 5-15 at the Paley Centerin Beverly Hills and feature new shows from the fall 2019 television season as well as returning favorites from broadcast, cable and streaming services.
As an added bonus, the Paley Center in New York will host free PaleyFest Fall TV Previews screenings on September 6-8.
The event will feature screenings of new shows like Salazar’s Amazon series Undone, which will have its special screening on Friday, September 6, 2019. Salazar will then participate in a conversation with fellow cast members Angelique Cabral and Constance Marie, as well as series creators and executive producers Kate Purdy & Raphael Bob-Waksberg, and director Hisko Hulsing.
Undone, an adult animated dramedy series, explores “the elastic nature of reality” through its central character, Alma (Salazar). After getting into a near fatal car accident, Alma discovers she has a new relationship with time and uses this ability to find out the truth about her father’s death.
But Salazar, Cabral and Constance Marie aren’t the only Hispanic talent scheduled to appear.

Hailing from CBS, the legal dramatakes a look inside the chaotic, hopeful and sometimes absurd lives of judges, prosecutors and public defenders as they work with bailiffs, clerks and cops to get justice for the people of Los Angeles amidst a flawed legal process.
Meanwhile, Izabella Alvarez, Carlos Alazraqui and Sonia Manzano will appear on the panel for Nickelodeon’s animated series The Casagrandes preview screening and conversation on Sunday, September 15.
