There are a lot of promising, up and coming stars in Hollywood at the moment, with plenty of them beginning to really make a name for themselves in the acting industry. One such star is the 29 year old actress Gina Rodriguez, who made her big breakthrough with her performance in the 2012 Sundance hit Filly Brown, which has led to a lot of doors opening for the beautiful and talented star.
Gina Rodriguez now stars in the brand new The CW television series Jane the Virgin, which has aired its series premiere this week, receiving some rave reviews along the way. Gina plays the lead role of Jane in the show and she has been talking about how hard she has had to work to finally get the recognition that she deserves.
Rodriguez explained, "God gave me this really awesome opportunity. I’ve been working really hard in this industry to try to get where I’m at right now and if it doesn’t happen the way I want it to happen in my head, then f— it. What are you going to do, right? I have an amazing creator who I love and who writes like a monster. Her staff is ridiculous. We can’t go wrong. Cream rises to the top. If people give us a chance and they actually watch this show, I think they’re really, really going to like it."
As well as starring Gina Rodriguez, Jane the Virgin also stars Yael Grobglas, Anthony Mendez, Andrea Navedo, Priscilla Barnes, Azie Tesfai, and Ivonne Coll, among others. Jane the Virgin airs on The CW on Monday evenings at 9/8c. Check out the trailer for the show, below.
