She will reportedly play Rosa Diaz’s love interest.
Jane the Virgin actress Gina Rodriguez has been cast in an upcoming episode of procedural sitcom, Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Details on her character have remained tight-lipped, but it seems likely that she will be playing the lesbian love interest of bisexual cop, Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz).
In the show’s 99th episode, Rosa was revealed to be bisexual, and the succeeding episodes dealt with her coming out to her parents.
Executive producer Dan Good said we’d eventually be introduced to Rosa’s girlfriend, and shortly after, Beatriz told Entertainment Weekly that she’d love Gina Rodriguez to take on the role.
We can’t wait!
Rodriguez has received widespread acclaim for her performance in Jane the Virgin, receiving three Golden Globe nominations (winning one in 2015). The show follows the titular character, Jane Villanueva, who becomes pregnant after accidentally being artificially inseminated.
It’s absolutely incredible, and all four seasons are on Netflix, so get binging!
The American actress can next be seen in the critically lauded sci-fi thriller, Annihilation, alongside Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac.
