Gina Rodriguez may have won her first Golden Globe on Sunday, but she’s been acting since 2004. She has made appearances on shows like Law & Order, Happy Endings and everyone’s favourite soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful!
She legit worked hard to be where she is. In addition her many past roles, watch her talk about her previous job as a nanny to twins.
She was also a dancer and she’s a great teacher (“YES, GET IT ELLEN! YESS!”)
But of course, her big breakout role is on the new show, Jane the Virgin. And trust us (and all of the critics) when we say you must watch it ASAP!
The concept may appear to be a little absurd (it’s an adaptation of the Venezuelan telenovela Juana la Virgen) but it’s actually really witty, funny and the acting is stellar.
It will make you laugh, it will make you cry and Rodriguez will absolutely make you believe in fairytale love.
Rodriguez is insanely humble and her genuine personality is just infectious.
Her reaction to her Golden Globe nomination was so, so sweet.
And then there’s her Golden Globe win, of course. Everything she said in her speech was perfect.
We can’t wait to see more from Gina and you best believe that she’s got a permanent spot on our list of girl crushes in 2015!
