Mayans M.C. | Inside Look: Selene Luna | FX
"Little People who want to be actors should not be limited to hiding in costumes, leprechauns, elves, fantasy creatures; we should also have equal access to human roles. Being nonhuman means that you are less than. I am a human being with valid points of view, passions and flaws. As an actor, I have a lot more to offer than a faceless voiceless creature.” — Selene Luna
