Ashley Campuzano, from Hulu’s original Emmy nominated series East Los High, plays Tiffany Ramos and is joined by a pretty impressive cast this season including Christina Milian, Catalina Sandino Moreno and JD Pardo. We caught up with the actress, who was Miss Teen California Latina in 2008, to get her tips on her must-haves beauty picks, get a behind-the-scenes look at her role on the show and to talk fashion.
Factio Magazine: Tell us about your role playing Tiffany Ramos on East Los High. What do you love about playing her?
Ashley Campuzano: Tiffany is a Texas native, seductive Bomb Squad member and hopeless romantic. As she attempts to make amends and pays the consequences for her passed decisions, Tiffany decides to take a hard stance on sex in order to find the guy of her dreams. I love playing Tiffany Ramos because she is such a fun character to portray. She’s a diva and mean girl who doesn’t like to play the mean girl for fun.
