Actress Emily Clara Rios, who is best known for her portrayal of Andrea Cantillo on AMC's Breaking Bad, has come out lesbian.

Rios, whose credits also include the coming out film Quinceanera, currently plays newspaper reporter Adriana Mendez on the FX series The Bridge, now in its second season.

In season one of The Bridge, Rios' character was revealed to be gay, and viewers first caught sight of her girlfriend, Lucy (played by Alyssa Diaz), during the show's second season premiere.

In discussing the role with lesbian entertainment blog After Ellen, Rios, 25, acknowledged for the first time publicly her own sexuality.

“I want it to be an incidental thing,” Rios said of her character's sexuality, “which is what happens in our everyday life.”

“I wanted to make sure the whole lesbian aspect wasn't this whole coming out story and the character wasn't going to be made more flamboyant in any sort of way,” she said.

“I'm gay, personally, so being Mexican and a lesbian – this is why I love the character, because I deal with the same type of things with my own family. … For my family, my mom didn't want me to live a difficult life. She brought me here for a better one. So she's like, 'Your coming out … I don't want this to be this. I want you to be comfortable.'”
