Meeting Station 19’s Jaina Lee Ortíz and Friends

Most decisions about what we watch on TV are taken by my whole family. As a result, we watch mostly kid and teen shows. Don't get me wrong, they're fine, but once in a while I like to watch shows meant for grown-ups, too.

Station 19 is one. So I work hard to make sure the kids are in bed and tucked in in plenty of time to watch my show.

Now sometimes life serendipitously puts us in situations we don't expect. That's what happened last week when I got to visit the set of the ABC network show, Station 19. Have you seen it?

So you can imagine my surprise when I walked through the door and the first person I see is Jaina! I got a little star struck to be sure.

I've been a fan of Station 19 from day one. One of my favorite characters is “Andy Herrera,” played by Jaina Lee Ortíz. I love the character because she's strong, smart and Latina! Plus, I really enjoy scenes where she sprinkles in a little Spanish. It speaks to me personally. 

And just like that my adventure at Station 19 began. I wanted to share it with you.

First we had an interview with Showrunner & Executive Producer Stacy McKee, Jaina, and actor Boris Kodjoe, who plays “Captain Robert Sullivan”. They were so generous and so kind. After being with them I could tell they have a great time working together. See for yourself in this video:

Touring the Set

After the interview, we took a tour of the set, meeting other members of the cast as we walked through. Here is Alberto Frezza (“Ryan Tanner”):

And here is Jason George (“Ben Warren”)

Look at how many props this set has!

I love this green fireplace.

A shiny, red truck!

And of course I couldn't leave without taking pictures with Jaina and Boris.
