Get to Know Golden Globe Winner Gina Rodriguez
If you don't know the name Gina Rodriguez by now, you will soon. Gina's the star of new US TV hit Jane the Virgin, which recently became the first CW show to be nominated for a major award. Better than that, it won, and Gina walked away with a Golden Globe last Sunday. The good news is we'll soon be able to see what all the fuss is about, as E4 has picked up the show and it's coming to the UK soon!
During our interview with Gina, we found her enthusiastic, thoughtful, and introspective as she spoke about blazing a positive, heroic trail for Latinas. Even in her Golden Globe acceptance speech, she said, "This award is so much more than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes." If you're wondering "Who is this amazing woman, and where did she come from?" keep reading for details on one of Hollywood's freshest faces.
