Ruivivar's credits also include American Horror Story and Southland. He is repped by Gersh, Silver Lining and Sutton Barth.
In ABC's 1970s-set Model Woman, a fictionalized family soap inspired by Robert Lacey's book, Model Woman: Eileen Ford and the Business of Beauty, model-actress Blake will play Gemma, a model from a small town who becomes the new "it girl." The newcomer is repped by APA and 23 Management Group. Helen Childress will pen the script for the drama.
