What do you think of Rosa Salazar being cast as Brenda?
She must be strong actress if she will be acting beside Kaya
She’s practically exactly what I imagined. I’m already in love with this casting choice. Now we have to wait for Jorge to be cast.
I didn’t think they would choose someone Hispanic for Brenda, also.
well, it is implied that she is Latina in the book (from Canada) and Rosa is a Latina..from Canada…lol so this is perfect
Never seen her in anything before, but her picture is pretty close to how I envisioned her when reading the book. So look forward to seeing her in the role.
d’awww she tagged Erika Christensen! i loved Rosa Salazar on Parenthood and not so secretly wish they’d bring her back on the last season just as a character check up to say hey, I got my sh*t together! the character not the actress LOL
In all the pics I saw of her, she has that sweet face and Brenda is more fierce. I won’t judge for old photos, so I will wait till the first promo pics. In general, I like her. Waiting for Jorge.
Shes actually exactly what i pictured. As long as she can act as fierce and strong as Brenda in the books shes perfect
