In the Season 4 episode of Superstore, “Sandra’s Fight,” Amy (America Ferrera) and Dina (Lauren Ash) visit Cloud 9 corporate to fix problems caused by Sandra’s (Kaliko Kauahi) “misguided activism.”
She was fired after talking about unionizing the staff and then was re-hired because that’s considered retaliation and legally considered discrimination. At corporate headquarters, Amy goes toe-to-toe with blue pin-striped suit wearing Claudia.
Claudia is portrayed by actress Ana Ortiz, America Ferrera’s former co-star, sister Hilda Suarez on Ugly Betty.
Since then, Ortiz has starred on Whiskey Cavalier (Susan Sampson), The Mindy Project(Dr. Mary Hernandez), Devious Maids (Marisol Suarez), and Hung (Lydia), among others. Superstore airs Thursdays at 8 pm on NBC.
