Gina Rodriguez: Fame 'hasn't been easy'

GINA Rodriguez's journey to fame "hasn't been easy".

The 'Jane The Virgin' star admits there have been many "challenges and obstacles" in her life and whilst she is enjoying international fame now, she understands every chapter must come to an end.

She said: "I know that this journey hasn't been easy or quick. It seems to almost get harder because my dreams get bigger and I desire more.

"The idea of staying grounded is so crazy to me because I remember what it was before those dreams came true. I remember all the challenges and obstacles and I see the new challenges and obstacles as I go along. Everything comes to an end. Every chapter has an end. I'm not going to be Jane the Virgin forever. I'm going to do movies that fail; hopefully I'll do movies that succeed."

The 31-year-old actress is keen to branch into theatre and play different characters but is incredibly grateful for her success so far.

She told Women's Health magazine: "I want to do theatre, I want to play different characters and I want to transform, so I need to remember that the reason that I got there was because of hard work, was because of the fact I know that it could be taken away from me at any minute, because I know that there are millions of people that would love to be in my shoes.

"I'm not going to take that for granted. I'm definitely pushed by God's grace and there's not a second that goes by that I don't thank everything and everyone and everything around me for it."
