Although English is her primary language, she's fluent in Spanish since being raised in a Spanish-speaking household all her life. She's also semi-fluent in French, and being of Spanish, French, German, and Mexican-Indian descent, for her it seems only right to be able to speak some of these languages.

Because of supportive fan mail, she continued appearing in all of the last 13 episodes of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer's" 7th and final season. Being the "Scoobie Gang's" latest addition has a brought a whole new fame to Iyari, who now makes personal appearances at conventions around the world.
