Gina Rodriguez to Star as Lesbian Paramedic In Upcoming Film

Gina Rodriguez on the set of Deepwater Horizon

Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez covers the October issue of Latina magazine and talks about her newest role.

Gina Rodriguez, best known for her role as Jane in the hit show Jane the Virgin, covers the October issue of Latina magazine.


Rocking a slick haircut, Rodriguez discusses politics, the importance of inner beauty, and the role that she'll be playing in the new film, Annihilation, alongside Natalie Portman .

"It's about five women who are going into the Shimmer, an entity that's starting to destroy the world," Rodriguez told Latina. "I play Anya Thorensen, a paramedic from Chicago who happens to be a lesbian and an ex-addict."

After receiving some criticism about her new look, she explained that part of the reason for the haircut was the role.

"Who I am is not my f*cking hair, and to be an actor is to transform," Rodriguez said. "To represent a community is to commit, to give my entire all."

Although filming has already begun, the movie has no offical premiere date yet. But don't fret: Jane the Virgin returns October 17 on The CW.
