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.

Jane The Virgin's Yael Grobglas Was Completely Surprised That Petra Had A Twin

Jane The Virgin's Yael Grobglas Was Completely Surprised That Petra Had A Twin

Count Yael Grobglas as one of the countless many who was completely surprised and shocked to learn that Petra was a twin on Jane The Virgin!

The actress opened up to Coveteur about the reveal and how before that all happened, she thought she was being killed off.

“Anezka was a complete surprise,” Yael says. “I didn’t know she was going to have a twin sister show up. My go-to is I’m always thinking I’m getting killed off. Every show I’m on. [laughs].

“So when I saw an episode where I thought Petra was running away, which is the lead into Anezka showing up, I thought she was running away.”

Now that Anezka is there, Yael is secretly pitching the writers about having her tap dance in an episode.

“I’ve been actually trying to drop secret hints that I can tap-dance since season 2,” Yael dishes. “I’m just waiting for an episode with Anezka breaking out in some Irish tap.”

And yes, Yael can really tap dance: “I started dancing when I was two. I haven’t been doing it seriously since maybe I was 20, so it’s been a while. I mean, I’m not going to go on tour, but for an episode, I’m sure I could get my s*** together.”

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

FYI: Yael is wearing Pollice Lee heels in the photo one.

Jane & Rafael Tackle Their Feelings About One Another Quickly on 'Jane The Virgin' Premiere Tonight

Jane & Rafael Tackle Their Feelings About One Another Quickly on 'Jane The Virgin' Premiere Tonight

While we’ll always be Team Michael (miss you Brett Dier!), JJJ has to admit that there is something about Jane and Rafael that we just can’t ignore on Jane The Virgin.

And on tonight’s premiere of the CW series, the two will tackle their feelings straight on.

Showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman shared with EW, “You’re going to see Jane deciding what she should do about them. We don’t hold things in very long on our show, so Rafael learns about those feelings very quickly in the first episode.”

“A lot happens and evolves between the two of them and takes them into a very new place at the end of the first episode,” she adds. “They cross lines that they haven’t before in terms of their romantic and emotional lives.”

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

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

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.

Showrunner Jennie Urman teased fans earlier that Adam (Posey) and Jane’s (Gina Rodriguez) romance will be “fun”.

“[Adam] reminds Jane that she’s not just a mom, and that she can be doing a little bit more wild and crazy, 27-year-old kind of stuff,” she shared.

Jane the Virgin returns on October 13th @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Tyler Posey's Adam Will Be a Fun Romance for Jane on 'Jane the Virgin'

Tyler Posey's Adam Will Be a Fun Romance for Jane on 'Jane the Virgin'

Jane the Virgin is back in about a month and we are way more excited than we possibly should be.

Showrunner Jennie Urman teased what’s ahead for the upcoming season and it looks like a lot of fun and romance for Jane (Gina Rodriguez), thanks to Tyler Posey‘s Adam.

“There’s a lot of joy I want to tap into this season,” Jennie says. “[Adam] reminds Jane that she’s not just a mom, and that she can be doing a little bit more wild and crazy, 27-year-old kind of stuff.”

But it’s just not Jane’s romance that we’ll see on screen when the series returns. It looks like Petra (Yael Grobglas) is getting back out there too.

She “[has] a variety” of love interests heading her way, in her “great, twisty, turn-y love life this year.”

What about Rafael (Justin Baldoni)? Well, seems he’s gonna be a couch surfer.

“…with his Bowflex and all his protein drinks. He sort of takes over the Villanueva house, and it does create a stress in [his] relationship [with Jane].”

But, there’s a silver lining: “He forms an unexpected bond with Alba, who is Team Rafael.”

Jane the Virgin returns in October on The CW.

'Jane The Virgin' Season Four Will Only Have 17 Episodes

'Jane The Virgin' Season Four Will Only Have 17 Episodes

Jane the Virgin‘s upcoming fourth season has a little less episodes than we expected it would.

When the show premiered back in 2014, it had 22 episodes, but now, in season four, we’re down to just 17. But still, 17, is better than five. Right?

The reason being is that showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman is also developing a prequel series to Charmed.

However, we also get a bit of good news with JtV too — in that writer Isabel Allende will appear as herself in an episode this season.


Isabel, the Chilean-American author, is one of Jane’s (Gina Rodriguez) literary idols.

Jane the Virgin‘s upcoming season will kick off on Friday, October 13th @ 8PM ET/PT on the CW.

Tyler Posey's Adam Connects With Jane On An 'Artistic Level' on 'Jane The Virgin'

Tyler Posey's Adam Connects With Jane On An 'Artistic Level' on 'Jane The Virgin'

On the season finale of Jane The Virgin, everyone was introduced to Tyler Posey‘s Adam.

Not much was known about him then — all we knew is that somehow he was in possession of a letter from Michael to Jane; but know, we know a little bit more.

“He’s an illustrator of comic books and graphic novels,” showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman told EW.

“He’s the same age as [Jane], but their lives have gone in such drastically different paths that it feels like they’re almost living different lives.”

So what does this mean for Jane’s future?

“Jane’s never dated an artist since she’s decided that she was an artist, so they connect on an artistic level and he just has a different approach to life than she does,” she adds. “I think that will be fun to see how Jane fits into his world.”

Jane The Virgin is back on Friday, October 13th on The CW.
