The newest episode of “Seen” – the Academy’s series of candid interviews on culture, identity and representation with some of today’s most influential Latinx filmmakers and artists – features Eva Longoria in conversation with journalist and series host Nick Barili. Longoria and Barili visit the campus of California State University, Northridge, from which Longoria received a master’s degree in Chicano Studies in 2013. Longoria opens up about the importance of activism and knowing your history, how being white-passing both helped and hurt her as an actor and why she kept her day job for the first two years of her acting career.
The episode is available now on the Academy’s YouTube at youtube.com/oscars. For information, visit oscars.org/news/academy-launches-seen-new-interview-series-focused-latinx-artists-and-filmmakers.
