Rising NBC Trauma Star Credits George Lopez Show Experience for Her New Job

Whoever cast the new NBC show Trauma — airing Monday nights at 9 p.m. — must have done some market research when it came to Aimee Garcia, at least based on what I learned about her within my own household.

Besides being a beautiful, talented young actress, she is immediately recognizable among several constituencies. My 13-year-old daughter knows her from watching endless repeats of The George Lopez Show this summer, where Aimee played Veronica, Lopez’s “spoiled brat niece” — my daughter’s description. So she can apparently draw young people.

AUDIO EXCERPT: "It's more physical. I am physically sprinting down the Embarcadero. And I am inside a helicopter that is held by a crane, four stories high. There was not that kind of risk on The George Lopez Show!"

And the Lopez show also brought her to the attention of Latin audiences as well; she was nominated for numerous acting awards as a result of that show.

Now she plays badass helicopter pilot Marissa Benez on Trauma. (You can learn more about Aimee Garcia on her personal website or follow her on Facebook or on Twitter.)
