THR's 35 Hottest Young Latinos in Entertainment
When Sanchez was cast in a six-episode arc during season three of ABC’s Lost, she didn’t know her character’s last name was Fernandez. Although she found out toward the end, she says: “I wouldn’t have changed any of my choices or played her any differently. Having that last name doesn’t dictate who you are as a person or how you behave.” For her, the goal is seeing more Latino actors playing characters unspecific to their ethnicity. Sanchez, 34, now stars as mother and nurse Callie Cargill on A&E’s The Glades, which recently wrapped its third season and reached a peak viewership of 3.2 million.
