Jesse Posey said that one of the perks of “Selena: The Series” is filming on location. Posey portrays Selena Quintanilla’s guitarist and husband, Chris Perez, in the Netflix series. “We filmed mostly in Rosarito, Mexico,” said the 26-year-old actor, who is Mexican American. “Then (we shot) quite a bit in Tijuana and a few times in Ensenada. Ensenada stood out to me, because my grandparents used to own a house there on the beach. I was only five the last time I was there, so I don't remember much. But I thought it was dope to be back there. Mexico is awesome. I might have to move there.” Based out of Burbank, California, Posey stays in touch with his fans on Instagram (@jpose13).

Right now, given the limits on foreign travel, domestic road trips are more popular than ever. If you plan to rent your road trip car, however, be on the lookout for the several perennial gotchas the rental companies throw at you to extract a few more of your dollars than necessary. Fortunately, you can avoid them knowing the gotchas before you put down your credit card.

Author, actress and activist Donzaleigh Abernathy’s latest project is inspired by her godfather Martin Luther King Jr. She’s the lead singer on “The Listening,” a choral project that’s a nod to Dr. King’s 1967 “Beyond Vietnam” speech. “My father (Rev. Ralph Abernathy) was with Uncle Martin that day at Riverside Church (in New York),” said Abernathy, who is based out of California. “After serving during World War II where all of the men in his company had been killed, except my father and another soldier named Benny, my father decided to dedicate his life to nonviolence.”

When people ask me that question, my snarky response is, "Beats me." When I check my crystal ball for the straight info on the future of Covid restrictions, it doesn't even show one bar. At best, I can highlight some of the guideposts that can help your planning.

Best known for her role as Ciara Brady on “Days of Our Lives,” Victoria Konefal said that filming on location helped set the mood for her upcoming movie, “Living Dead Presents: Fog City,” which is set for a Halloween release. “We were flown out to Dennis Port, Massachusetts,” she said. “It’s a lovely little fishing town. The energy surrounding the town was eerie. There was one road and it was mostly empty, but it worked to our advantage (for a horror film). I’m a fan of getting spooked, so I was soaking it all in. There was a constant fog rolling in that kept us from being able to see more than 30 feet ahead of us. The air was crisp, the mood was haunting and being there really allowed me to separate from my life and throw myself into the character work. The bonding experience with my castmates was also one for the books.” Konefal interacts with fans on Twitter and Instagram (username: @victoriakonefal).

Nobody really knows how long it will take to get back to a "normal" travel environment, if ever. And nobody knows for sure how the travel world will evolve for early and mid-2021. So, if you're considering a trip this spring or summer, you need to (1) keep a close eye on COVID developments and (2) remain fully flexible about arrangements.

Few actresses have had as eclectic a career as Gloria Reuben. After her breakthrough role as an HIV-positive physician assistant on “ER,” Reuben quit her day job temporarily to tour with Tina Turner as a backup singer.

Born in Canada, the New York resident currently may be seen in Showtime’s “City on a Hill.” Her latest role, however, is off screen. She is the president of the global clean water nonprofit, Waterkeeper Alliance (www.gloriareuben.com/waterkeeper-alliance/).
