Fresh on the Screen: Sara Ramirez (Video)

Sara Ramirez is a Mexican-born actress, singer, performer, and activist, most widely known for her role as Dr. Callie Torres on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, and as The Lady of the Lake in the musical Spamalot. Having struggled at the start of her career to land roles as a Latina actress, Sara is proud to portray a bisexual doctor of color on television, and has become an outspoken activist for immigration and LGBT issues.

She sat down with Jeff Yang for this “Fresh on the Screen” interview, presented by NPR’s Code Switch and produced by the Vilcek Foundation, and spoke about growing up as an immigrant in southern California, her difficulty finding diverse roles, and working with Shonda Rhimes.

This week, Code Switch takes a look at the past and present of immigrants on TV with video profiles of a quartet of groundbreaking artists who are changing the game for how immigrants are depicted on the small screen. Read the intro essay for this package, “Fresh On The Screen: How TV Is Redefining Whom We Think Of As ‘American.'”

Loserville: Sara will be producing the film

Loserville follows a dorky high school outcast named Chuck as he navigates the wild and confusing days of his senior year.

Following in the steps of ground-breaking high school movie classics such as Heathers, Mean Girls, Easy A and American Pie… Loserville follows a dorky high school outcast named Chuck as he navigates the wild and confusing days of his senior year. Chuck must face the challenges that he and friends are growing apart; that his mother has decided to date a much younger man who just happens to be the school’s gym teacher; and that his dream girl the brilliant, beautiful and popular Melissa Mercer barely acknowledges his existence. His plan to capture Melissa’s heart once and for all by befriending her younger sister, Mary, is complicated by the fact that a viral video of Mary is the talk of the school. Loserville is a unique take on the teen movie genre full of laughs while tackling the important issue of cyber-bullying that is an epidemic among teens today.

Written by Chris Bellant and Lovell Holder, the film features an ensemble of funny, flawed, and lovable characters who collide in a romantic, comic cocktail that turns every teen stereotype you think you know on its head.

Lyrics: Sara Ramirez – ‘Roller Coaster’

Here’s the lyric’s to Sara’s brand new single ‘Roller Coaster.
The song was written in 1996 by Michael Pimperton.

Roller coaster, carousel.
The highs are heaven, but the lows oh they can be hell.
You can grab the ring, you can ring that bell,
when the ride is over you can never tell.

People tell you this one thing will make your life complete,
so you give it everything you got and you wind up on the street.

Then one day you wake up and they tell you ‘you’re a Queen’,
but then you find that someone else is pulling all the strings.

Roller coaster, carousel.
The highs are heaven, but the lows oh they can be hell.
You can grab the ring, you can ring that bell,
when the ride is over you can never tell.

The one you love they love you, until the end of time,
but lose your edge or lose your cool, they will drop you like a dime.

Everyone is crowding ’round, when fortune is your friend,
but when your luck is running out, you’re all alone again.

Roller coaster, carousel.
Where the highs are heaven, but the lows oh they can be hell.
You can grab the ring, you can ring that bell,
when the ride is over, you can never tell.

Maybe i’m just cynical and all these words are lies,
but experience keeps telling me, that the cautious one is wise.

But caution makes you hesitate, and hesitate you’re lost,
so take your opportunities and never count the cost.

Roller coaster, carousel.
Where the highs are heaven, but the lows oh they can be hell.
You can grab the ring, you can ring that bell,
when the ride is over, over over, you can never ever tell.

Roller coaster, carousel. Roller coaster, carousel. Carousel. Carousel. Carousel. Carousel.
