Enchanting young Latina Cierra Ramirez will be the newest student in school when ABC Family’s hit Secret Life of the American Teenager returns for its spring premiere at the end of this month. The Houston native will be joining the cast as pregnant teen Kathy who lives with her grandmother. Lead actress Shailene Woodley, who plays Amy on the show, will serve as a kind of mentor for Kathy who plans on putting her unborn child up for adoption.
Though she is only 17-years-old, Ramirez is no stranger to the spotlight. The actress and singer has been in front of audiences from a young age performing on the Showtime series Showtime at the Apollo at the age of 10 and landing a recurring role on Disney’s The Suite Life of Zack and Cody as well as guest appearances on Desperate Housewives, CSI: Miami and Zoey101. Ramirez has also had parts in feature films and come May 11th viewers can flock to the theaters to see her star alongside Eva Mendes in the coming of age drama Girl in Progress.
Secret Life of the American Teenager returns to ABC Family at 8pm EST Monday March 26th.
