Personal Quote:

I'm hearing a lot more calls for different types of heroes, not just the gay best friend but the gay hero, not just the black best friend but the black hero. People are clamoring for it a little more, and I think that's a positive sign. It means that things will start to spread.


Her father, Edgar Gustave Roth, is German (he was born in Cologne). Her mother, Barbara (Rydz), is of Polish heritage.
