Sara Ramírez Says Che Diaz Is ‘Not Here to Be Liked’ on ‘And Just Like That…’

Sara Ramírez knows people aren’t feeling Che Diaz. And if you’ve been watching the Sex and the City revival, And Just Like That…, you might be one of them. Even if you don’t watch the show, you’ve probably heard of Che Diaz, chaos agent, and have some thoughts of your own. 

It feels like years ago now that the biggest conversation surrounding And Just Like That… was a Peloton bike (indirectly) killing Mr. Big. Because once Che Diaz came into the picture and ruffled a beloved marriage within the show’s universe, the character has not exactly received a warm response from fans. 

Che is certainly the most polarising character in the series, as the nonbinary podcast host and stand-up comedian gets embroiled in a romance with Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon). Their affair leads to the end of Miranda’s marriage with Steve, a longtime fan favourite. 

In an interview with The New York Times, actor Sara Ramírez, who plays Che, opened up about the negative reception their character has received ahead of the season finale, which dropped on HBO Max on Thursday 3 February. 

“I don’t recognize myself in Che,” Sara told the Times. When asked whether they’ve seen the criticism of Che Diaz online, Ramírez said, “I’m very aware of the hate that exists online, but I have to protect my own mental health and my own artistry. And that’s way more important to me because I’m a real human being.”

They continued, “I’m really proud of the representation that we’ve created. We have built a character who is a human being, who is imperfect, who’s complex, who is not here to be liked, who’s not here for anybody’s approval. They’re here to be themselves.”

The season finale of And Just Like That… is available to stream now on HBO Max along with a documentary that goes behind the scenes of the making of the Sex and the City revival.
