Long Gone By: A Story Of A Mother’s Love With Erica Muñoz [Exclusive Interview]

Long Gone By shows you a story rarely seen. It demonstrates the internal frustrations and challenges immigrant families face as they try to fulfill the American dream.  

Erica Muñoz (Grey’s Anatomy, Jericho) plays Ana Alvarez, the protagonist in Long Gone By. She is a single Nicaraguan mother working two jobs to make ends meet for her and her daughter, Izzy (Izzy Alvarez). Ana’s life turns upside down when she receives a deportation notice on the same day she gets the news of her bright daughter’s acceptance into college. This leads Ana to make drastic, unexpected decisions to leave Izzy behind financially stable enough to continue her education. 

Muñoz began her career in theatre, including a part in the Broadway musical Rent. She later returned to Los Angeles to pursue film and television. She also acted in CBS Numb3rs and VH1 Acceptable TV.  Muñoz’s films include Sueños and Days of Wrath.

I had the opportunity to speak with Erica Muñoz via Zoom. She talked about how lucky she was to experience the red carpet release of this movie at the New York Latino Film Festival. Muñoz explained the Long Gone By development process with the director Andrew Morgan (The True Cost, The Heretic).  She also discussed her experience playing Ana, a role with not a lot of dialogue, but with plenty of emotion to portray. Lastly, Muñoz also shared her personal take on what she would do for her kids in a situation like Ana and more.

 

Long Gone By can be found on all HBO platforms.
