Our Non-Latino Celeb of the Week is the beautiful and talented Stana Katic, who is best known for her starring role as Detective Kate Beckett on ABC’s hit show, Castle (Mondays at 10/9c). The hilarious actress spoke exclusively to Latina.com about all things Latino – including the character she’d love to play in a telenovela!

Do people ever think you’re Latina?

I’m not sure, but some people definitely got confused when I had a Mariachi band come to set to celebrate my birthday with me last year.

What would you say if the Castle’ producers suddenly told you: ‘We’re going to do an entire episode of the show in Spanish.’

Bring it on! Do I get to Flamenco? Tango? Salsa? Merengue?

If Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) left Kate for a Latina, she would…

Have a shot of tequila, learn Spanish, and then challenge the girl to a Lambada dance-off, and win the man back!

What is the nationality of Det. Esposito, played by Jon Huertas?

Puerto Rican.

If you could have one Latino celeb guest star on your show, it would be?

Alejandro Inarritu. He directed Biutiful, and I genuinely admire his work and talent.

Who is the most handsome Latino man on the planet?

Latin men are beautiful. It’s hard to pick just one: Jon Kortajarena, Javier Bardem, and Gael Garcia Bernal.

Who’s your favorite Latino celeb?

Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz, because I think they embody everything that a strong, fun, sexy, and fearless female can be.

Why do you love Latin culture?

I love the strong sense of family, as well as the joy of living, dancing, and laughing that Latin cultures have.

What’s your favorite Latin dish?

Nothing beats a good ceviche, light and filling.

Who are your Latino friends in Hollywood?

Actually one of my dear friends and co-workers on set is a fun fiery Latina, who hails from Ecuador.

If you could star in a telenovela, tell us what your dream character would be like?

She would be the long lost daughter of a Drug Tycoon who is torn between being loyal to her newly found cartel father and the police officer who she has fallen deeply in love with.
