Gina Rodriguez fights off tears while discussing Jane the Virgin's final season

Gina Rodriguez had to fight back the tears while discussing the final season of her hit CW series at the TCA Winter Press Tour. The 34-year-old actress was joined by series creator Jennie Snyder Urman to discuss the fifth and final season on Thursday. It's been a busy week for Rodriguez, who, on Wednesday, attended the premiere of her new film, the action-thriller Miss Bala, which opens in theaters on February 1. 

Gina Rodriguez is Mexico’s most inexplicably wanted woman in the Miss Bala remake

Miss Bala outdoes movies like Traffic and Sicario by portraying the conflict not just as pointless but incompetent, maybe even actively stupid. In this vision of an un-winnable battle, both sides spend a great deal of time pursuing the mild-mannered Gloria (Gina Rodriguez) not because she has the ability to bring either of them down, but because they both really want her to work for them. Miss Bala is a remake of a 2011 Mexican film with which it shares a number of plot points and details, though many of the newer film’s absurdities are sui generis. The U.S. version, appropriately enough, makes some adjustments to its heroine’s home country: Instead of a Mexican resident, Gloria is a U.S. citizen who visits her friend, Suzu (Cristina Rodlo), in Tijuana as Suzu prepares to enter the Miss Baja California pageant. 

Why is Gina Famous For?
