The World Is in Her Hands: Meet Priscilla Quintana, Star of the New CW Series ‘Pandora’

Priscilla Quintana, who is more or less being introduced to the world as star of the CW’s new TV series, Pandora, may not have known exactly in what form it would take, but growing up she was well aware of what she ultimately wanted to achieve: to do something that would endure for years to come. “I knew that one day when I die, I wanted to leave something behind,” she says.

Which is not as self-motivated as it may sound, given the fact that her passion was born out of the fact that her family was largely driven by the idea of giving something back to the community from which they’d come. Says Priscilla, “I dabbled with the idea of taking over from my grandparents, who would bring in girls addicted to heroin or other drugs, and help rehab them and get them clean. And then get their children back who were in foster care. And my mom was huge on charity as well; she was taking in pregnant teenagers that were abandoned by their families. We spent a lot of Christmases at soup kitchens downtown, just feeding the homeless and giving back in any way we could. That’s always been something that was huge to me. It still is.”
