Emmy award-winning actor Rome Flynn is bringing much needed Latinx visibility to television via Prime Video’s upcoming series With Love.

Created and directed by Gloria Calderón Kellett (One Day at a Time, How I Met Your Mother), the five-episode romantic comedy centres around a Mexican American family and truly portrays the Latino community: one of the most underrepresented peoples on television relative to their population, according to data by Nielsen. In addition to Flynn’s Santiago, who is Afro-Cuban, the show includes gay and trans lead characters who carry the same authenticity. Flynn says, “We cover all these bases in the show in a natural way.”

To capture nuances of real life beyond the script, Flynn and his co-stars Mark Indelicato (Ugly Betty), Isis King (Shameless, The L Word) and Emeraude Toubia (Shadowhunters) worked together with Calderón Kellett to shape scenes. “She’s a fantastic writer and a great leader,” says Flynn. “She was on set with us every day [which] created a different dynamic; it felt like we were creating something present. For instance, if we were doing a scene and she felt like we should do something different, we just did it. We’d come together and talk about it. It was really a collaborative thing. We were able to live in these moments longer and explore different aspects of it, instead of just showing up and [being] constrained to doing what’s on the paper. Leaving the show, I felt a lot more empowered. I felt excited.”
