    • Masiela Lusha: (About George Lopez and her role in the sitcom) The sitcom allows me to jump around and to express the entire emotion of Carmen through one big jump or one big hand swing, and that says a lot about a person. Not everybody just acts with their face in real life. We all move our hands sometimes without thinking. We all move our bodies. We all tense up, or we all loosen up, and because the cameras are so wide, it’s almost like theatre.
