Gina Rodriguez Reveals How She Played A Hand in Getting Tyler Posey on 'Jane the Virgin'

Gina Rodriguez Reveals How She Played A Hand in Getting Tyler Posey on 'Jane the Virgin'

Gina Rodriguez and Tyler Posey are two of our favorite people, so it’s no wonder that they radiate on screen together.

And in fact, it was sort of Gina‘s idea to get Tyler on Jane The Virgin as Adam.

“I did the cover of Backstage magazine back in 2012 with Tyler before anything had really happened in my life, and he was already in like the third season in Teen Wolf,” Gina remembers to EW.

She continues, “I loved him so, so dearly that when [showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman] was introducing Adam, it was actually me and the costume designer that were walking across the studio and we were like, ‘Tyler would be unbelievable. He’s finishing Teen Wolf. He’s absolutely freaking adorable. He’s the coolest dude ever. He’s a great freaking actor.’ And it happened within like a day.”

Tyler and I had wanted to work together for forever and it was like done, done, done. And then it happened.”

However, it was almost the case that we’d have to say goodbye to him after only a few episodes.

“He is so in demand because he’s such a freaking love bug and he did a movie this summer and then he needed to do another movie and we thought we were going to lose him and I was devastated,” Gina says. “I was legitimately devastated.”

But it all worked out — “We didn’t lose him, so it was like the best thing in the world.”

Everyone can go flood Gina‘s social media with massive thank yous now.

Jane the Virgin airs TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Camila Cabello, Gina Rodriguez & More Sing in Lin-Manuel Miranda's 'Almost Like Praying'

Lin-Manuel Miranda wanted to do something to help Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria, so he did what he did best — he wrote and he composed.

The Hamilton creator adapted the song “Maria” from West Side Story into a new song to benefit Puerto Rico relief efforts, “Almost Like Praying.”

Camila Cabello, Gina Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, and many more artists appear in the song and video, singing and rapping in Spanish.

All proceeds go to hispanicfederation.org, which provides disaster support relief to Puerto Rico.

Gina Rodriguez Will Direct Episode of 'Jane the Virgin' in Season 4

Gina Rodriguez Will Direct Episode of 'Jane the Virgin' in Season 4

Gina Rodriguez will be heading behind the camera for an upcoming episode on Jane the Virgin.

The actress, who plays the titular character of the show, will be directing an episode in the forthcoming season.

“Guess who gets to direct an episode of Jane the Virgin? #dgaOrientation #FemaleDirectors,” Gina made the announcement on Twitter over the weekend, showing off her study material.

If you missed it, you can check out the first pics for the premiere ep, and what Gina had to say to fans who were criticizing the recasting of Mateo.

Jane the Virgin returns in October on The CW.

Gina Rodriguez Calls Out Fans Who Are Complaining About the New Mateo For 'Jane The Virgin'

Just before the weekend, Gina Rodriguez premiered the brand new poster for Jane The Virgin‘s season 4 — which debuted a brand new actor to play Mateo.

“This season is for my warriors,” she wrote on Instagram. “All the tears, the laughter, the love and the loss. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy making it. Love you all!”

Gina also added that she was excited to work with Elias, who plays the older Mateo: “He is pure love.”

However, some JtV fans aren’t happy about the casting change and decided to voice their opinions online with the #NotMyMateo — something that Gina caught onto quick and she’s not having it.

“He is 5 years old,” Gina wrote on Twitter today. “I’m going to need all y’all commenting on new Mateo to take one dirty second and realize you are insulting a 5 year old!”

YAS, GINA!

We get that some might not be happy about having a casting change on one of your favorite shows, but we also have to realize when it is a child, it’s inevitable. The writing may skip years, and kids grow up.

We’re sure Elias will be the best Mateo ever and you’ll love him just as much as the two previous actors.
