Ismael Cruz Cordova with Rosita & Elmo

As the U.S. continues to grow to be a “majority minority” nation, Sesame Street has added a third Spanish-speaking character to its cast, and will put a “special focus on Hispanic heritage” in the next season.

“Armando” (above with bilingual puppet Rosita) will make his debut in September. The actor is 26-year-old Puerto Rico-born actor Ismael Cruz Cordova.
