Gina Rodriguez Stars in Romantic Comedy 'Sleeping With the Fishes'

Rodriguez, who also has a Jewish background, said it was “interesting” to play such a unique role. “My Grandfather is a french Jew and my sister and her kids are fully Jewish. For me to play a Latina Jew, I was like this is awesome, this is revolutionary, this is different, and it’s also a beautiful story a young woman’s struggle,” she said. “It was just an opportunity to really stretch my wings.”

The comedy co-stars Steven Strait, Priscilla Lopez, and Devious Maids actress Ana Ortiz. It recently premiered at the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival.
