America Ferrera Interview for “Cesar Chavez”

Uploaded on Wednesday 26 March 2014


America Ferrera stars as Helen Chavez, the wife of our hero played by Michael Pena, in the new political drama, “Cesar Chavez.” The last time I spoke with the actress, it was for “How to Train Your Dragon,” four years ago. Now, Ferrera is tackling more grown-up roles that challenge her.

In this interview, we talked about her interest in making “Cesar Chavez,” the importance of Helen in the life of Cesar Chavez, how she researched the part, and the rise of a revolution.
