Orrantia is best known for her role as Erica in ABC’s The Goldbergs, which is currently on its ninth season, and the topic we discussed the last time she joined The Nerds of Color in October.

Her film credits include the independent film Cooper and The Castle Hills Gang as well as the feature film God’s Not Dead 2, which included her original song “Silence You.” The actress can also be seen in Roommates and Schooled.

She released her first EP The Way Out in 2019. Recent singles include “Made For This,” “Find Yourself Somebody,” and “Nights and Weekends.”


Once again, I spoke with the actress about the difference between doing a comedy film like Christmas is Canceled and The Goldbergs, funny memories with the cast, writing “The Same Way,” seeing the fan reaction to the movie, and much more!
