This actress contains examples of:
- Ambiguously Brown: Due to being mixed (her mom is Afro-Cuban and Puerto Rican; her father is Irish and American Indian). This has led to her diverse roles, even being able to pass off as Middle Eastern in one film.
- Badass Spaniard
- Black and Nerdy
- Meganekko: In Clerks II.
- One of Us: As mentioned above, she's a Star Trek fan.
- Rags to Riches: She was homeless and illegally living in abandoned apartments virtually all of her adolescence, when suddenly a man passing by simply sees her sitting on a doorstep and offered her a role in Kids. She enjoyed the experience so much that she used her pay to take acting classes.
- Sassy Black Woman: Some would even go so far as to call her the Pam Grier of her generation. Due to her mixed heritage, doubles up as a Spicy Latina.
