Sagal's Annie "Rebel" Bello is inspired by the real-life exploits of activist and legal advocate Erin Brockovich.
“[W]hen they presented the part for me, his name was Cruz and he was Hispanic," Garcia told Connect FM in an interview.
And I spoke to [show creator] Krista [Vernoff] and I said, ‘You know, I’d like to do it, but I’d like to make him … a Cuban-American [who] was in exile, just like I was, you know, came over when he was very, very young from Cuba in the 60s, in the first wave of exiles.
"And and I wanted to him to have that story.”
Garcia added: “I wanted my culture to be represented on television, which … I don’t know, you can search back since maybe I Love Lucy, you know, but there hasn’t been a lot of Cuban characters on television.”
He said that it's “maybe an obligation or an honor, really a privilege” to represent “the generation before me.”
Rebel can be seen on Thursday nights at 10 pm on ABC.
