On looking back at her own high school years: “I didn’t brush my hair; I wore platform flip-flops and Converse because I had a height complex,” says Dawson, who envied her mom’s six-foot stature. “I would roll in wearing my pajamas, just in the nick of time before class started. And that’s still me.”
On being both excited and terrified to play “amazing icon” Dolores Huerta in the upcoming Chavez, which chronicles civil right leaders Cesar Chavez and Huerta’s fight for farmworker rights in the 1960s: “They weren’t these regimented people; they were intense but they did have fun moments.”
The “happily single” actress on having kids in the future: “I won’t be able to act anymore. I’ll just be focused on trying to make the world a better place for my baby.”
Voto Latino president and CEO Marisa Teresa Kumar on Dawson’s global activism: “She’s been really moved by some of the grassroots movements around the world that are putting power back in people’s hands. That kind of deeply personal, authentic action really drives her to get more and more involved over time.”
