Gina Rodriguez Fell Immediately in Love with the First 'Jane the Virgin' Script

Gina Rodriguez graces the cover of Adweek‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 30-year-old Jane the Virgin star had to share with the mag:

On aspects of the media that drive her nuts: “People who are constantly engaging in social media and don’t engage with people in real life. People who go to their phones during dinner and aren’t really present. And I, of course, get sucked into this problem as well. I’m working toward not neglecting the people around me.”

On where she sees herself in five years: “Success was when my father turned to me and told me I could be an actor. I already feel like I’ve succeeded. Ideally, the series will last three or four seasons. I’ll do films during my hiatus, making films under my company, I Can and I Will Productions. I would love to produce films and TV shows myself, to help promote stories about diverse cultures and to put on screen what we see in real life. I’m working on my book this hiatus. It’s been my goal to write an empowering book for youth. And I want to create a foundation with my two sisters to help with education and contribute to ending child hunger. So that would be success for the next four or five years.”

On if she loved the script right away: “One hundred percent, and that probably happens one out of every 200 scripts that you read. In the first five pages, I was like, “Who is this woman that wrote this?” [U.S. series creator, producer and writer Jennie Snyder Urman] is just brilliant. She’s my muse. I am absolutely in love with this woman because she’s writing about a girl who’s a Type-A personality, who’s super planned-out and who is able, in my opinion, to transcend the cultural boundaries that Latinos tend to have in the industry. Jenny continues to surprise me with each script. We read them about a day before the shoot. We don’t get to know anything about the future of our characters until then. She’s gained all of our trust beyond belief.”
