Believe it or not, Saturday Night Live has never had a Latina cast member in its 41-year run...
...until now! Meet Melissa Villaseñor, a Mexican-American performer from Whittier, California.
Prior to joining SNL, she was a part of Más Mejor, the Latinx comedy studio and network started by Fred Armisen and Horatio Sanz.
A stand-up comedian of 10 years, Villaseñor was a finalist on America's Got Talent Season 6, where she did hilarious impressions of celebrities such as Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears.
Although SNL's cast has included two Latino men in years past — Sanz and Armisen — people have criticized the NBC show for its overall lack of Latinx representation, particularly after it was announced that Donald Trump would host an episode of SNL last year.
