“He was always written Latino, but he wasn’t originally written Puerto Rican. Originally he was written Mexican. But myself and Ana [Ortiz] and Isabella [Ferreira], we’re all Puerto Rican. James [Martinez] is Colombian. Mateo [Fernandez] is the only Mexican person. So the writers decided to make it a Puerto Rican-Colombian family instead,” Michael Cimino, who plays Victor, told StyleCaster in 2020. “I was so freaking excited [when I read that Victor was Latino.] I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. This is so freaking sick.’ Then when they changed it to Puerto Rican, I was even more excited because I was like, ‘Yo! Those are my people.!’”
Though Love, Victor is available to stream on Hulu. The show was originally planned for Disney+. While the reason why the show switched streaming services isn’t known, Cimino feels like Hulu is a better fit for the series regardless. “I was really excited. I felt like Love, Victor was better suited on Hulu than Disney+ because it’s targeted at a little bit older of an audience that understands subject matter a little more,” he said. “We don’t have to worry about a 5-year-old child stumbling upon the show and no one being there to explain what these things are to them. I feel like sometimes, if that discussion hasn’t been had with your child before, this is a new thing and it can be quite confusing.”
