The actress also starred in last year’s sexual assault survivor drama ‘The Light of the Moon.’
The actress plays the tough detective Rosa Diaz on the Fox police comedy, which is now in its fifth season. The character came out as bisexual in the series’ 99th episode in December, a development that was inspired by Beatriz’s own desire to see bisexual representation without being portrayed as “hypersexualized … duplicitous or villainous.”
Beatriz also recently executive produced and starred as a rape survivor in the indie drama The Light of the Moon, which won an audience award at SXSW last year and later was released by Imagination Worldwide. THR critic Leslie Felperin called her performance “powerful, unflinching and authentic.”
Beatriz next appears alongside Heather Graham, Molly Shannon and Angela Kinsey in Graham’s directorial debut Half Magic, which hits theaters Friday. The actress’ other film credits include Ice Age: Collision Course and Short Term 12, while her other TV appearances include Bojack Horseman, Bob’s Burgers and Modern Family.
