Video Q&A with Actor/Writer Jorge Ortiz

Qulture writer Victor Yates talked with actor and writer Jorge Ortiz on the new television series he is developing, Chris/tina. The series follows the life of Chris Maldonado, a transgendered woman born in the wrong body and allows viewers to watch Chris’ transformation.

The lead actor, playing Chris, Micah Mora is a talented actor who has been featured in Sprite, Pepsi, and MTV Tr3s commercials. The supporting cast includes Gabriel Chavarria (Anthony), who plays Chris’ identical twin brother and Patricia Rae (Gloria), plays Chris’ mother. Justin Huen (Diego) plays Chris’ gay cousin whose sexuality creates conflict within the Maldonado family.

Eileen Galindo (from Dora the Explorer) plays Monica, the mother’s best friend and Roberto Sanchez (Peter) plays the mother’s boss and future love interest.
