Many people assume that Cameron is your all-American girl, but after all, her last name is Diaz.

In an interview, Diaz recounts that her family settled outside of Tampa, Florida at the turn of the century where they were cigar rollers before they eventually moved to California.
Coming up: an actor you might not realize identifies as a person of color.
