Jane the Virgin Cast: Who is in it?
The main cast of ‘Jane the Virgin’ includes Gina Rodriguez, who plays the role of the protagonist. Jane Gloriana Villanueva is a religious young Latina, and obviously a virgin as the title suggests. However, all of this changes when she accidentally becomes artificially inseminated. Andrea Navedo plays the role of Xiomara “Xo” Gloriana Villanueva, Jane’s outgoing mother who had her when she was only 16. This prompts Jane to cling on to her virginity so as not to make the same mistakes her mother did. Although Gloriana is a dance instructor, she wants to have a career in singing.
Justin Baldoni plays the role of Rafael Solano, the owner of the hotel where Jane works, and the biological father of the child Jane is carrying. The two are shown to grow closer to each other as the show progresses, and even develop feelings. Brett Dier plays the role of a detective Michael Cordero Jr., who has feelings for Jane as well and although was believed to be dead at one point, seems to be alive but suffering from amnesia. This is supported by a plethora of other actors who are extremely talented and bring the flavor to the show that draws audiences.
