It’s the quiet one’s you have to watch out for!!! That adage is quite apropos when discussing why Eiza González Reyna made the list this year. She’s quietly, but steadily making a name for herself. First there’s the day job, as a cast member on Robert Rodriguez’s television show, From Dusk till Dawn: The Series, González plays Santanico Pandemonium. The role portrayed by Salma Hayek in the original film. Having just wrapped its third season the series has been well received by critics and is developing quite a cult following. Aside from her television work she is slated to appear along side Jamie Foxx in the film Baby Driver in 2017. Oh yes, there’s also that beautiful rumor that she could snag the role of Catwoman, in Gotham Sirens an all female super-villian mashup with Margot Robbie reprising her Harley Quinn character.
In 2016 she took part in PSA's created by fellow countrymen Alejandro González Iñárritu to encourage voter registration. If you think we are the only ones who have noticed González ascent, think again! This year Variety Latino named Ms. González as one of the “10 Latinos to Watch.” In the case of Eiza, we definitely like to watch.
