I had the chance to chat with Ginger Gonzaga, who plays Walters’s best friend and paralegal, Nikki Ramos on my new show, Anne with an E. I’m sure you’ll love getting to know this character as much as I do. Check out the interview below! Introducing Nikki Ramos: Walters’ Best Friend and Paralegal

Who is Ginger Gonzaga?
Before she gained fame for playing the witty, soulful, chaotic She-Hulk on The Attorney at Law, Ginger Gonzaga was an up-and-coming actress with a string of television roles to her name. And before that, she was a scrappy young girl growing up in Woodland Hills, CA. Ginger Gonzaga is also an Emmy award winning Actress (2017) which gives her a unique understanding of character complexity. I think Nikki will be fun because we’ll get to see what it’s like for someone who might not know the intricacies of law but who has her own strength. Gonzaga cites inspirations such as actor Jennifer Lopez, comedian Eddie Murphy, singer Shakira and dancer Michael Jackson. I’m just grateful that I’ve been able to do something I love, she says.
About Her Role Nikki Ramos
Ginger Gonzaga portrays Nikki Ramos, one of the central characters in IRL. She’s a paralegal who works with Ally at her law firm. Ally sees her as a best friend and confidant to talk about her life, relationships, and accomplishments. When Ally can’t seem to let loose and color outside the lines, she turns to Ramos for reassurance that there is life outside of work – something she needs to hear after having just moved into her new home in Old Town Pasadena.

Why does she encourage Walter to be more like herself?
In season three, we first see Ginger Gonzaga as Nikki Ramos in the two-part premiere. Nikkie’s introduction to us is swift – she saves the day by stopping a criminal before he can murder Tatiana Maslany’s character Alison. From the get-go, Maslany makes it clear that Walter looks up to her. The next time we see Nikkie is when she comes by Mavis and Anita’s (Maura Tierney) apartment with wine to celebrate their marriage.
Why does she work at Dr. Leekie’s office?
Ginger Gonzaga as Nikki Ramos explained why she works at Dr. Leekie’s office in a recent interview with The Ringer, I’m what you would call the comic relief. I work at Dr. Leekie’s office because I love law so much, even though it is frustrating. You never know what they are going to have me do next on the show-I might have to be She-Hulk: Attorney at Law or Wonder Woman-and that keeps things interesting for me too!
Where can we find this newfound friendship?
Ginger Gonzaga has been best friends with Tatiana Maslany since she was 16. The two women met in 2007, when Gonzaga played Maslany’s high school sweetheart in the ABC Family movie Picture This. Shortly thereafter, the two began an email correspondence that turned into a friendship. Nowadays, Gonzaga stars as Aria’s best friend (and maybe something more?) Ella Montgomery on Freeform’s hit show Pretty Little Liars.
Frequently Asked Auestions
What is Ginger Gonzaga doing now?
Ginger Gonzaga is currently portraying the leading role on Syfy’s Deadly Class. Gonzaga can also be seen in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, opposite Chadwick Boseman, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya and Michael B. Jordan. Previously Ginger starred as Rose Matheson in Starz’s pirate drama series Black Sails which premiered back in 2014.
Is Nikki from ‘the bachelorette’ straight?
My friends always joke that I’m not a true hetero because they claim I never get into debates with them about gay rights. In reality, I just didn’t really feel compelled to defend the LGBT community when the whole RuPaul’s Drag Race controversy came up. However, it became blatantly clear why it was important for me to speak up when one of my favorite shows– The Bachelorette— started airing again.
Does Nikki have a crush on Mallory?
Is Mallory dating anyone? Is she single? Are there any red flags when it comes to her dating habits or history that we should know about? Should I ask her if she has a crush on my friend? Yes, absolutely. A best friend who dates one of your other friends is a person worth getting to know better. Plus, it would be useful for the two of you to have a clear understanding of each other’s feelings in case anything changes down the line.
