Anyone that enjoys a good comedy-drama would recognize Sara Ramirez for her role in "And Just Like That." And while she has had a good run in the industry, her personal life is just as fascinating.

Sara Ramirez was born in Sinaloa, Mexico, moving to the United States when she was only eight. She attended Juilliard School, graduating with a degree in fine arts.

She started her acting career in several Broadway productions, her debut being "The Capeman." She rose to fame playing "Lady of the Lake" in "Spamalot."

She has also won several accolades, including the Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical. She has also won a Screen Actors Guild and a Satellite Award.

GETTING MARRIED

In June 2011, Ramirez and her long-time boyfriend, Ryan DeBolt, got engaged. They got married in an intimate ceremony by the beach in New York on July 4, 2012.

Unfortunately, a decade after exchanging their vows, the couple split up. Ramirez announced the split on her Instagram page, writing.

Interestingly, reports say the couple separated long before they announced their split started dating different people. They have, however, remained close friends over the years.

COMING OUT AS NONBINARY

In 2020, Ramirez cleared the air regarding her sexuality. In the announcement made on her Instagram account, the "Grey's Anatomy," star wrote: "In me is the capacity to be" everything from a "girlish boy" to a "boyish girl."

She also updated her bio to read "non-binary human," stating that the non-binary use she/her and they/them pronouns. Following the announcement, fans dubbed her a "nonbinary queen."

Ramirez's character on "Grey's Anatomy," Callie Torres, came out as bisexual in a 2009 episode, a move that paved the way for more bisexual representation in film and TV.

Seven years after the episode aired, Ramirez came out as bisexual. The LGBTQ attack in Orlando, Florida, which saw 49 people dead and five injured, inspired her to come out.

"Coming out publicly was something that I was afraid of because I was concerned that it would affect my career in a negative way. I was afraid of the discrimination I might face, not just outside Hollywood, but inside." She told People, as reported by NBC News.

Ramirez is just one of the many celebrities that identify as nonbinary. Others include Valentina, who previously contested on "RuPaul's Drag Race," "Transparent" creator Jill Soloway, "Billions" star Asia Kate Dillon and singer Sam Smith.

PLAYING CHE DIAZ ON "AND JUST LIKE THAT"

Ramirez portrays Che Diaz on "And Just Like That," a ten-episode of the HBO TV series "Sex and The City." Her character, who works alongside Carrie, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, tries to encourage Miranda to explore her sexuality.

Her character has received a lot of criticism. Vulture says that Diaz has "been written as this jumble of traits to serve a bunch of plot purposes." The Daily Beast refers to Diaz as "the indisputable worst character on television."
