Interview with Cosmopolitan
When talking about her role on the hit series, Natalia told Cosmopolitan, “I do see a lot of roles that are, like, the girlfriend or the love interest or the girl next door.

Having strong women who aren’t damsels is so nice.” She is an excellent writer too, who recently published a book with a name “A Brush with Life”.
