She replaced Sonia <span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>Manzano</span>, who played Maria, after she announced her retirement last year.</p> <p>Lopez, in an interview with <a target=”_blank” href=”%20http://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/sesame-street-welcomes-nina-young-latina-46th-season-n495761″ rel=”nofollow”>NBC News</a>, recalled her “Sesame Street” phase when she was a kid, saying, “Of course I watched the show.” “Everybody did, I definitely have memories of being home in Miami and watching it,” she added.</p> <div id=”adunit_article_center_middle1_computer” class=”adunit_rectangle”> <p><span>Advertisement</span></p> </div> <p>She shared that she began studying ballet when she was three years old. “I studied dance, and we did a performance every year.” Lopez recounted that she did all the talent shows and was in the school choir at the same time. She also had few <span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>Spanish-language</span> commercials stints that aired in Latin America.</p> <p>Moreover, Lopez studied dance at The <span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>Joffrey</span> Ballet and American Ballet Theatre during their summer workshops. In high school, she started musical theatre and eventually moved to New York City to pursue further studies at the <span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>CAP21</span> acting conservatory.</p> <p>Before doing “Sesame Street,” she starred in the national tour of “West Side Story,” “<span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>Singin</span>’ in the Rain” and “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” She also appeared in “Wishes,” “Believe of the Disney Cruise” and understudied the role of Jasmine in “Aladdin.” Aside from performing arts, Lopez has worked various jobs in restaurants, graphic design, and managing social media accounts for dance studios in Florida.</p> <p>”Sesame Street” is her television debut and shared that her audition for the role was “a blast.”</p> <p>”Originally, at my first audition, it was a reading with another person doing <span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>Elmo’s</span> lines in their own voice, which was kind of weird,” Lopez recalled. “But it was a regular audition, I just went through it trying to keep it real and believable. It was a scene where Elmo and I had a <span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>heart-to-heart</span> talk,” she noted.</p> <p>”The second time around, at my callback, I auditioned with “Murray” (one of the puppets),” Lopez added on. “We did a little scene and we sang together and did an <span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>improv</span>. It was actually <span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>super-fun</span>. It was one of the coolest and most fun auditions I have ever experienced.” Lopez thought that day that, even if she <span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>didn’t</span> get the job, she was happy to go through the process.</p> <p>According to a report by <a target=”_blank” href=”http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/entertainment/2016/01/15/sesame-street-to-debut-new-latina-character-nina-in-hbo-neighborhood/” rel=”nofollow”>Fox News Latino</a>, the <span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>46</span><sup><span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>th</span></sup> season of “Sesame Street” — now housed by HBO — aims for kids to be “smarter, stronger, kinder.”</p> <p>The brand new season will premiere on Saturday at 9 <span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>a.m</span>. EST and will have two <span class=”spellchecker-word-highlight”>half-hours</span>.</p> <div class=”contribute”> <div class=”con_left”> <ul class=”social_b”><li><a class=”addthis_button_facebook” href=”javascript:”><img/></a> <a class=”addthis_button_twitter” href=”javascript:”><img/></a> </li> <li class=”a_email”>0</li> </ul></div> </div> <p>© 2015 Latinos Post.

He’s also the guy who played many other roles in other movies, such as the following.</span></p> <p>”<strong>Love Actually”</strong></p> <p>If you’re into romance and romantic comedies, you’ve probably seen this film. But did you notice the 69-year-old actor among the cast? He played the erring husband to Emma Thompson’s character. At one point, he shares screen time with “Mr. Bean’s” Rowan Atkinson, who played a shop clerk who took too long a time to wrap Rickman’s gift for his mistress, leading to the discovery of his unfaithfulness.</p> <div id=”adunit_article_center_middle1_computer” class=”adunit_rectangle”> <p><span>Advertisement</span></p> </div> <p>”<strong>Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves”</strong></p> <p>You’ll probably be surprised at the actor’s look in this film, where he played the villain – the Sheriff of Nottingham – in all his disheveled-hair glory.</p> <p>”As it stands, Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves is a brilliantly entertaining, overlong muddle, and a show that Rickman doesn’t just steal, he practically invents the word ‘pwned’ as he goes along,” <a href=”http://www.denofgeek.us/movies/alan-rickman/233030/the-top-10-movie-performances-of-alan-rickman” rel=”nofollow”>Den of Geek</a> noted.</p> <p>”<strong>Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”</strong></p> <p>There’s a pattern in Rickman’s acting career, and that’s getting shady, villain-y roles. This movie is no different – he plays the judge who ruined the lead character’s life, as played by Johnny Depp.</p> <p>”<strong>Sense and Sensibility”</strong></p> <p>As Colonel Brandon, Rickman gets to play a part that’s not usually associated with him – a warm, upbeat character who sought to be loved by the woman he fell in love with at first sight and eventually earned her love. This is one of those movies where the actor’s character figures in a legitimately happy ending.</p> <p>”<strong>Galaxy Quest”</strong></p> <p>This is a rather funny spoof of sci-fi films, with Rickman playing his character in “Star Trek”-ish makeup – an odd departure from his usual roles.</p> <p>”<strong>Alice in Wonderland”</strong></p> <p>Surprised? Don’t be. Rickman didn’t really appear in the film but lent his voice to Absolem, the Caterpillar, which had features that faintly resembled the actor himself.</p> <p>”<strong>Perfume: The Story of a Murderer”</strong></p> <p>This movie stars the guy who played the uber techie Q in the recent Bond films, Ben Whishaw, as well as Dustin Hoffman. Rickman’s role here is that of a wealthy man whose beautiful daughter fell victim to the murderous perfumer played by Whishaw.</p> <p>”<strong>Die Hard”</strong></p> <p>The 1988 film was officially Rickman’s first film. He played the villainous Hans Gruber, a German terrorist.</p> <p>”Truly, Madly, Deeply”</p> <p>This is one of those rare films where Rickman played the male protagonist. The plot of this story is reminiscent of “Ghost,” sans the pottery wheel, that is. This is one of his must-see performances, with some arguing it’s his best work.</p> <p>Which one have you seen?

There were rumors that her close friend Victoria Beckham would be designing her wedding gown.</p> <p><a href=”http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3397893/I-haven-t-talked-Eva-Longoria-responds-rumours-pal-Victoria-Beckham-design-wedding-dress.html” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”>Daily Mail</a> stated that the Latina actress appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show” and provided some details on the wedding plans.</p> <p>“I don’t know. I haven’t given it one thought, but it is in the news that she is. I haven’t even talked to Victoria about it,” Longoria answered when asked whether the British designer would be designing her dress for the big day.</p> <div id=”adunit_article_center_middle1_computer” class=”adunit_rectangle”> <p><span>Advertisement</span></p> </div> <p>However, fans should not get too excited about the possibility of seeing Victoria Beckham’s debut in the wedding gown department.</p> <p>“Victoria Beckham does not produce wedding dresses and has no current plans to expand the collection to include bridal wear,” Beckham’s representative said in a report by <a href=”http://www.people.com/article/eva-longoria-engaged-2015″ rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”>People</a>.</p> <p>Furthermore, there is also the possibility of not having a wedding at all. Longoria said on “The Wendy Williams Show” that she might skip the entire affair and escape prying eyes.</p> <p>“I’m advocating for eloping. I don’t know if I’m going to get away with that thought.”</p> <p>Some fans remain optimistic that Beckham might do Longoria a favor by making a special one for the occasion, if the latter requests. <a href=”http://www.fansshare.com/news/is-victoria-beckham-designing-eva-longoria-s-wedding-dress/” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”>Fansshare</a> revealed that an alleged insider said that Victoria is keen in expanding the wedding aspect of her business. It is actually a dream come true for the Brit to land a project for Eva.</p> <p>Victoria reportedly knew that she was going to make Eva’s wedding gown even before the latter’s engagement. The Latin actress’s wedding pictures will be seen all over the world, which will be the perfect publicity for Victoria’s new work.</p> <p>Longoria has not announced the official wedding date yet and shared that they are not in a rush to get married. Eva has been married twice before. She first married Tyler Christopher and then Tony Parker.</p> <p>Fans and friends are excited about her third marriage, saying that Baston is the right one for her. <span>Longoria, 40, and Baston, 47, started dating in 2013. The media executive reportedly courted the actress like a proper gentleman. Baston did not even know that Longoria was an actress when they met. He proposed to her during a trip to Dubai in December 2015.</span></p> <p>More updates and details on Eva Longoria’s wedding plans are expected soon.</p> <p align=”centre”><iframe class=”videocontent” src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/NZ0U9Tq_hUM” width=”530″ height=”315″>[embedded content]</iframe></p> <div class=”contribute”> <div class=”con_left”> <ul class=”social_b”><li><a class=”addthis_button_facebook” href=”javascript:”><img/></a> <a class=”addthis_button_twitter” href=”javascript:”><img/></a> </li> <li class=”a_email”>0</li> </ul></div> </div> <p>© 2015 Latinos Post.
