Jeimy Osorio (Celia) is set as a series regular in ABC’s drama pilot The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez. Written by Cuban-American playwright Charise Castro Smith, The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez is described as a sexy revenge drama with a supernatural twist. It centers on Eva Sofia Valdez (Gina Torres), a Cuban immigrant who rose from rags to riches and is a celebrated Miami entrepreneur and a champion for immigrant rights. But her success is fueled by an insatiable ambition that could destroy her family, a vendetta against the lover Blair Monroe (Eric Close) who betrayed her, and ghosts from the past who threaten to reveal the dark sacrifices Eva Sofia made to attain the American Dream. Osorio will play Luz, wild-haired and hugely pregnant, she’s another of the strange “shadow women” who is delighted to help Eva Sofia exact revenge on Blair. Osorio’s credits include Telemundo series Celia, Porque el Amor Manda for Televisa and Universal’s Fast Five.
Also yay Gina Torres! Love watching her in everything.
