Stephanie Beatriz will be in conversation about her life and work.
A natural talent with a striking presence, Stephanie Beatriz continues to skillfully navigate the entertainment industry with an array of versatile and complex roles defining her body of work. Most recently, Beatriz starred in Jon M. Chu’s film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s play, In The Heights and Disney’s Oscar-nominated animated hit, Encanto. Beatriz also starred as Detective Rosa Diaz in the beloved comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which was brought back by popular demand on NBC. As a bisexual Latina, Beatriz is known for her outspoken advocacy for LGBTQ+ rights and queer representation in the entertainment industry.
With a gifted voice that transcends, Beatriz has also lent her voice to a variety of noteworthy, animated projects, including Disney’s Encanto, Raphael Bob-Waksberg’s Critics’ Choice award winning adult comedy BoJack Horseman from Netflix; Loren Bouchard’s Primetime Emmy Award winning sitcom Bob’s Burgers from Fox Broadcasting; Mike Thurmeier’s Ice Age: Collision Course from Twentieth Century Fox; and the family comedy Danger & Eggs from Amazon. This success follows her riveting leading performance in the 2017 SXSW Audience Award winning film, The Light of the Moon, in which she also served as an executive producer.
ASL interpretation will be available for attendees.
