Ramirez told the trade paper:

It all still feels a bit surreal, Ramirez tells THR. From the first day, everyone was so welcoming. Working with Donnie and the cast and crew of Blue Bloods can spoil a girl. Total pros, each and every one, and all so supportive. I just enjoyed every minute. Truly, I never dreamed I would be coming back as a regular. To say I am grateful is an understatement.

Marisa Ramirez on Spartacus Nudity: “My Soul Took a Big Hit”

Soaps In Depth caught up with former General Hospital and The Young and the Restless star Marisa Ramirez and asked her about her role on Starz’s new period drama Spartacus: Gods of the Arena. The series, which premieres January 21, required Ramirez's first nude scene and gave her reason to pause.
"My soul took a big hit," she confesses. "It's not really life-changing, but once you do it, it's something you can never take back." Fortunately, the scenes, which take place with her character's gladiator spouse, Oenomaus, weren't gratuitous. "It's art... I was pleased with it," she states.
