Eva Longoria has spoken about the importance of diversity in television and film.
The actress found success after starring as Gabrielle in ABC's Desperate Housewives, which wrapped up its series finale in May.
Speaking at the Monte Carlo Television Festival, the actress noted that Latinos are "still under-represented" but offered suggestions on how that can be improved.
"I think we still have a lot more work to do," Longoria said. "In the United States we're 16% of the population, but we're only maybe 10% represented in television and films, so we're still under-represented.
"That's why it's important for Latinos to tell these stories like For Greater Glory. Devious Maids is another one - it's about four Latina maids.
"It's important for us to support those shows as Latinos - to stop being a big number and start being a market and to aggregate our audience.
"The African American community does it really well in the US - any time there's a movie out people really get behind it and support it, so the Latino community has to do that."
