    She’s played a superhero alongside Halle Berry in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, a love interest in this year’s American Reunion and most recently Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s bike-messenger ex-girlfriend in August’s Premium Rush -- and so far has prided herself on not being typecast. (Yet, she says, “I always add a little extra passion into my roles. The Latin passion, you can’t get rid of it!”) Though next she’ll be playing a Beverly Hills Mexican maid in the new Lifetime series Devious Maids, in which her Rosie Falta searches for a better life for her and her family, Ramirez, 32, rationalizes that “it’s a story that Latinos in general will really relate to.” Adds Ramirez, who was raised by her grandmother in the Dominican Republic before joining her parents in the U.S.: “And I’m getting the opportunity to show her having a three-dimensional character.”
