Francia Raisa Previews There Will Be Political Arguments Coming on 'grown-ish'

Speaking with US Weekly at the event, Francia previewed that Ana’s Republican side will be coming out soon.

“There’s so much that happens on this show,” she shared. “I’m the only Republican in our friend group, so expect my voice to be heard on that and an argument to basically start because a lot of people don’t like that side of me. So it touches on a lot of issues.”

Francia Raisa Says Selena Gomez Has Been a Huge Help in Her Career

Francia Raisa Says Selena Gomez Has Been a Huge Help in Her Career

Francia Raisa has been one of Selena Gomez‘s longtime friends throughout both of their careers in Hollywood and the grown-ish actress is opening up to Rogue magazine about their friendship!

Here is what the 29-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On support from loved ones: “My pastor has been a huge help in my life, just in helping ground me as far as dealing with the difference between my personal life and the industry life. And honestly, Selena [Gomez] has been a huge help in my career. I’ve seen her grow and she’s seen me grow and we have a lot of conversations about the industry. In seeing how much she has to go through… I’ve learned a lot myself, and so I’m really grateful to her and what she’s confided in me and taught me.”

On playing a character over 10 years younger than her: “I’m 29 years-old but I’m playing an 18 year-old on this show. I still look so young. That was a struggle for me because I obviously wanted to graduate into playing older roles, but I look so young on-screen. I think I just had to learn to accept that I still look young and that means longevity for my career. I learned to embrace it and appreciate that I am able to participate in shows like Grown-ish because I do look so young.”

On her kidney transplant surgery
: “At the time I was 28-years-old and I couldn’t do things for myself– and I’m a very independent woman, so it was brutal. I couldn’t get out of bed without needing help. I couldn’t shower, couldn’t walk and I couldn’t even open a door. It was a very humbling experience and I’ve learned a lot.”

Francia Raisa Says Her 'grown-ish' Character Opened Her Eyes To A Lot of Things

Francia Raisa Says Her 'grown-ish' Character Opened Her Eyes To A Lot of Things

Francia Raisa will be back on the small screen in grown-ish, premiering in just a few weeks on Freeform.

The role reunites her with the network, where she used to star on The Secret Life of the American Teenager before it ended its run in 2013.

Preparing for the part required a little extra work for Francia, who will play Ana Maria Patricia Torres, who is a Cuban-American Republican from Miami.

Speaking with US Weekly, Francia opened up about her preperation, and how she actually related to Ana: “She grew up conservative — well, Catholic. I grew up Catholic so that side I understand, having to read the Bible, having to have a rosary, and all that stuff.”

“But on her beliefs, I’m not Cuban at all so I had to learn a lot about Cuba, which is really fun to me and really interesting,” she adds. “It was different and I’m actually really tapping into a different character and really embodying who Anna is. I can try to put a little bit of myself, but she’s so different from me.”

“I think once you understand your character, which is my secret, once you understand your character, the lines just come fast,” Francia went on. “It’s basically just research, lots and lots of research, like, ‘OK, let me understand that side of the party because I’m not Republican,’ and it really opened my eyes to a lot of things.”

grown-ish premieres on Wednesday, January 3rd.
