Hello everyone, April 28th, Gina Rodriguez attends the Fresno State Satellite Student Union will be open only to Fresno State students and employees. She uses her celebrity status to represent people of color, underrepresented cultures and fight for women’s rights. She talk to students about self-love, empathy and her journey as a Latina woman. Discover the extract written from the panel below, because unfortunately this kind of session are private and therefore rare are the photos or video ! But Gina was interviewed and speaks to the Collegian’s art and entertainment editor after a speech.
“Life is much more enjoyable when you uplift and give love,” Rodriguez said. “Self-love is what is going to fuel activism.” Rodriguez’s talk was centered around a mantra her father taught her: “Today is going to be a great day. I can and I will.” She told the audience her story of how her father made her repeat this phrase every day when she was a child, and she is still repeating it 17 years later. The words “I can and I will” have inspired Rodriguez to create her own production company, which will focus on properly representing Latina women on screen. She focused on the importance of watching programs with a Latino cast. “Girls like me were never the lead in TV shows. [Because of that] I didn’t believe I could succeed,” Rodriguez said. “If you want to see yourself, support yourself.”
Many young women in the audience asked Rodriguez questions about becoming successful. Mostly, her response to them was to understand being a woman, and a person of color, is a strength – not a weakness. “I get fueled by the idea of solution versus problem,” Rodriguez said. “Right now, you think you’re the problem, but, on the contrary, you are the solution. You are a strong badass woman.” Multiple times throughout the speech, Rodriguez talked about dealing with rejection. “Positivity, solution, power. You own all of them. It’s your journey, make it what you want it to be,” Rodriguez said. “One person’s ‘no’ is not the end of your journey. Try and fail and try again.” In a one-on-one interview with The Collegian, Rodriguez said young women should not be scared of the job search that comes after college graduation. “I think the exciting thing about getting out of college and getting into the real world is that you actually start to craft the life that you want,” Rodriguez said. “It can be intimidating, but so is college and you handled it just fine. Rodriguez promised “the real world” is more fun. “So get out there and start making your dreams come alive.”

Hello everyone, April 18th CBS Television Studios invites Television Academy National Active members and a guest to an evening with the cast of Jane The Virgin. Gina as well as all these co-stars (including Brett) was present Jane the Virgin FYC at the Wolf Theater in North Hollywood. The series has previously earned two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Narrator (Anthony Mendez) ! It’s James Corden who animated the panel and you can discover some revelations that have been said below. + HQ Pictures are available in the gallery.
Jane the Virgin’s creator Jennie Snyder Urman revealed how the show will once again get serious and get involved with American politics. “We feel a responsibility to react to this presidency,” Urman said, explaining that Jane Villanueva’s son Mateo will wonder “why people don’t want abuela in this country.” Coll added that even beyond the immigration message was one of feminism and power. Her character, Alba, living in the United States allowed her to be freer as a person divorced from societal expectations because it “doesn’t matter what people think about you as long as you pay your rent.”. – “[It has] three Latina females as the head of the household,” she said. “This is a show that not only depicts us, but the American scene. The American reality of the country that is composed of many, many immigrants.”
About Michael’s death – And so he did and so it was heartbreaking, but the dramedy took some of that devastating edge off by flashing ahead three years. “I felt like it was an opportunity to really massively grow and to become this mother and to hunker down, and the routine she has now and the way she sees sex is different, the way she views relationships and love and destiny and fate,” Rodriguez said of exploring her character, now a widow and single mother, following that leap. “She’s become.. a little cynical. It’s interesting to take this blossoming character that was so full of life, to actually now start having what we can all relate to, what becomes our traumas that start to shape us. Jane was my big first character to live with for this long, but how often do we get to see a show [where] we actually get to see somebody then affected by their traumas and who they become after that?”

Hello everyone, April 09th Gina and showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman attended The Contenders Emmys held Sunday in Los Angeles for Jane the virgin’s promotion. Gina posed in a superb dress Kate Spade! Discovery of the passages of the panel which was directed by Nellie Andreeva. + HQ Pictures are available in the gallery.
In Season 3 of the series, Jane endeavors to complete her graduate thesis, while dealing with the unexpected death of her husband, Michael (Brett Dier). The big question of the day was: “Why did Michael have to die?” – “It was always part of the journey that I envisioned at the beginning about a woman who really believed in fantasy and the magic of romance and had big dreams in her life. And things don’t work out like that all the time,” Urman told the audience. “It’s always been about the balance, the shift from leaving her relationship between fantasy and reality. Michael’s death — the show started with such a big earthquake for Jane when she found out she was unexpectedly pregnant, and Michael’s death was always going to be the midpoint of the show where everything changed again in her life and everything changed for everyone around her.” Adding that in a telenovela you want to build to an ending and have that ending in sight, she continued. “Our show is about how do you go on. [..] Loss is always something that we all face [..] and I wanted to explore that and figure out how we could find the comedy and the joy after an event like that.” Gina, who was heartbroken about losing her onscreen husband, said that Urman had always kept them in the dark about what’s next said it was “a challenge as an actor because usually you know where your character is going. You know your character’s journey but it’s been really incredible to walk through this series and Jane’s story like walking through life, which is necessarily not knowing what’s going to happen next.” source : Deadline.com
