Ronni Hawk is an American actress and model who began her career in 2014 as a short film actress. Two years later, in 2016, Hawk made her big breakthrough with the Disney TV series Stuck in the Middle, where she plays the role of Rachel Diaz, the cheeky oldest sister of Harley Diaz (Jenna Ortega).
Harley Diaz is the middle child of a 9-person family, an inventor, experimenter, mediator, and persuader who tries to maneuver her way through the hustle and bustle of being part of her big happy family.
Since its premiere on February 14, 2016, Stuck In The Middle has received enthusiastic reviews and great popularity, enough to give the actors a degree of fame.
In an interview with Just Jared, Ronni revealed her favorite pastime playing the role of Rachael Diaz: “My favorite pastime playing my character is becoming a completely different person. I’m not really a girlish girl, I’m more of a wildcat.”
She added, “At first I was really worried that people wouldn’t like my character; I thought viewers would think it was too mean or too intense, but instead people found Rachel funny and responded very well to her, so that was really cool.”
Here’s a detailed look at Ronni Hawk’s career and private life.
