What is LaToya Tonodeo's ethnicity?

According to Legit, LaToya has Black and Hispanic roots. Interestingly, the actress has never spoken about her ethnicity, so there's no telling if this information is correct.

The outlet also shares that LaToya’s parents are of mixed descent. However, since LaToya seems to keep her family out of the public eye, this information is also debatable.

LaToya Tonodeo as Diana Tejada on 'Power Book II: Ghost'

Tensions are high between Diana and her mother, Monet. As for her father, Lorenzo (Berto Colon), he has been supplying her with product to sell drugs on campus. So, it’s understandable why Diana is at her wit's end with the Tejada family dynamic.

Judging by the Season 3 trailer for Power Book II: Ghost, Diana may succeed in making a clean break from the Tejada family.

However, nothing is ever as it seems in the Powerverse. So, only time will tell if Diana’s efforts are successful.

Catch new episodes of Power Book II: Ghost Fridays at 8 p.m. EST on Starz.
