Interview: Rosanny Zayas on Playing Sophie in Season Three of ‘The L Word: Generation Q’

The L Word: Generation Q, a sequel to the original Showtime series The L Word that ran from 2004 to 2009, is back with its third season, chronicling the lives of a number of lesbian and queer characters in Los Angeles. Season three picks up after a tumultuous and eventful season two with new directions ahead for all of its characters.

Awards Radar had the chance to speak with Rosanny Zayas about her character, Sophie Suarez, and how her relationships and professional life will continue to transform. Zayas didn’t share too much about what’s ahead for Sophie throughout season three, but teased the setup from episode one:

“We’re starting off the season with Finley’s journey through sobriety and after season two, she goes to rehab. We get to see what that relationship is like between Sophie and Finley moving forward with a new Finley, and someone who sees the world a bit differently. I wouldn’t be shocked to say that Sophie might see a couple things a little differently too.”

When asked which cast members she doesn’t get to work with but would like to, Zayas had an optimistic response:

“It’s so funny, because this season, I think they actually did a great job of putting us all in rooms together. So that’s going to be really exciting to see. I actually think I got to work with everyone this year, even if it was for just a second. It’s been really fun, and I think people are going to be pretty happy to see that too in this season, how everyone just mingles together and finds their path towards each other.”
