‘Jane the Virgin’ Star Gina Rodriguez Hopes to Use Star Power for Good

0

Gina Rodriguez is hoping the international success of her hit show Jane the Virgin helps her charity dreams come true.

The pretty star is keen to create a foundation to “help with education and contribute to ending child hunger” with her two sisters, a doctor and an investment banker, and now her show, which started life as a Venezuelan telenovela, is on air in 170 TV markets, she’s hoping her work as a philanthropist will get a little boost from her fame.

Rodriguez tells Adweek she’s also working on a new book and a few films: “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.”

Now can you see why the talented actress is one of our new faves? Girl’s got a good head on her shoulders!
