Gina Rodriguez Was 'Praying & Waiting' For 'Jane The Virgin' Role

Gina Rodriguez gets a big hug from Mario Lopez during her appearance on Extra at Universal CityWalk on Friday afternoon (October 17) in Universal City, Calif.

The 29-year-old actress made several promo stops for her new hit CW show, Jane The Virgin — and it included a freestyle rap at Access Hollywood. Check it out below!

“[It was] the job I was praying for, waiting for,” Gina recently told Backstage mag. “I was like, ‘This is brilliant.’ My household is very similar. I also grew up in so many different cultures and ethnicities, it was difficult for me to encompass all of my upbringing into a story in general.”

She continued, “I would say as an actor it’s very hard to find a story like yours unless you write it yourself, which will be done, but in the meantime, I read this script and thought, OK, here we are giving so much more. We are the heroes. But the show’s main goal is to tell a story from an American girl’s perspective. We all migrate here and have the American dream. You’re going to know I’m Latina, but I don’t need to tell you in the first two seconds that we meet.”

Check out the freestyle rap below!
