Read Time:2 Minute, 9 Second


Ada Maris (Ada Maris) is famous for her roles in TV series “Maya MC” and “Nurse” and the 1986 movie “About Last Night”. She told Variety Show that she thinks this role is a kind of derogatory and one-dimensional She was surprised to see such a role after some recent progress in Latin expressions.

“When I opened it and saw that it was not even funny at all — it was hurtful and derogatory — I was shocked because I walked in expecting something very different, considering the current situation and what we have achieved Progress,” Maris said in an interview with the publication.

“Uncoupled” was created by Darren Star, who is also behind the TV shows “Beverly Hills, 90210”, “Sex and the City” and “Emily in Paris”. It tells about a man named Michael, played by Harris, who was blinded when his 17-year-old husband shot him, and now he must spend his marriage as a gay in his 40s in New York City Disintegration and single life.

Maris saw part of the script in the first episode, in which there was a character named Carmen, who was the steward of Michael’s character. According to the “Variety” report, in the first scene, Carmen was introduced as “almost hysterical on the phone” and called Michael to tell him in bad English that she suspected that his apartment had been robbed.

“Sir, they stole it as soon as I got here!” Her line said. “They stole it! They robbed you! I don’t know how they got in.”

Ada Maris, filmed in 2019, told Variety about her disappointment with Carmen's role in the drama

In the second scene, Variety reports, Carmen scolded Michael for the way he washed the glass and said: “No, I do this. You are not clean, you always leave the ring.”

The part of reading Carmen made Maris very angry, and she wrote an open letter to Star and Harris.

“I’m just fed up,” she said. “If I don’t say anything now, when should I say it? I just want (the writer) to think about it next time I write a character like this. I speak for young actors, so they face less than my generation. .”

According to the “Variety Show” report, Harris is the executive producer of the series, but did not participate in writing or playing the role of a Latin housekeeper.

CNN has contacted Netflix for comment. The streaming service said in a statement to Variety that it apologized to Maris and that the character had been removed from the show.
