Larchmont actor set to appear in "In the Heights"
A Larchmont actor is set to appear in one of the biggest movies of the summer.
Olivia Perez landed her biggest role yet in "In the Heights."
The movie tells the story of a tight knit community that imagines a better life.
Perez tells News 12 she had so much fun on set working alongside a lot of experienced actors like Lin Manuel Miranda and “Crazy Rich Asians” director Jon Chu.
She hopes everyone who sees the movie enjoys it as much as she enjoyed making it. "I want people to believe in their dreams, just keep going cause you will achieve it. One day hard work pays off," says Perez.
And this isn't the last you'll see of Perez - on June 17 you can also catch her on Sesame Street.
