We’ve already come to know and love her as Rafael’s troubled but endearingly well-intentioned sister Luisa on the CW’s breakout hit ‘Jane the Virgin’. Now, Yara Martinez is set to lend her comedic chops to a darker character as a series regular in Amazon’s series ‘The Tick’. The show centers on the unlikely duo of a timid accountant and the titular blue superhero, with whom he unwittingly forms an alliance as he attempts to unravel the conspiracy that rules his city. This show has also showcase the talent of other Latinos such as longtime NALIP supporter Berto Colon, who also plays a character on ‘Orange is The New Black’ and Christian Navarro, who was previously on ‘Vinyl’.
Martinez had already appeared on the pilot episode as a guest star in the role of Ms. Lint, but her role has now been promoted to series regular. Martinez also recurs on Amazon’s comedy series ‘I Love Dick’.
