GINA RODRIGUEZ IS HAPPY TO BE 'THE NEXT BIG THING.'
Physically she's not that big--- although by no means a zero--- but she has an outsize personality, radiates happiness and is a lot of fun to talk to.
Gina stars in the new television comedy series Jane the Virgin playing a girl whose life plans are suddenly turned upside down when she is accidentally artificially inseminated.
The series title begs the question which has to be asked and which 28-year-old Gina manages to avoid answering in a definitive way.
The deeply religious Gina, who says: "My church, my boyfriend, and my family all keep me grounded," describes virginity as "a gift." She explained coyly: "I think we all have a gift to give to somebody else. Whether we can get our virginity back or not, we all have a gift to give and we all deserve respect.
"I had a dad who every day reminded me that my gift was special. Is that strange? Hopefully on this platform I've been given I can remind other girls that hey, maybe it's not the popular choice but it's an awesome gift to be able to give someone."
Gina, who won a best actress award at Sundance for her performance in the movie Filly Brown, is clearly an actress on the way up.
