Gina Rodriguez’s talent shone in Filly Brown, and she will get a chance to stretch her acting chops with her upcoming show, Jane the Virgin. Based on the Venezuelan telenovela, the CW show will follow a young religious Latina who is accidentally artificially inseminated. At a "Changing Faces of Latinas in Media" panel, the young star admitted she respects what anyone has to do to feed their families, but she won’t perpetuate stereotypes with the roles she chooses. “If we all stick together and say no, that project would not exist,” she said.
