Gina Rodriguez
If you watch Jane the Virgin, then you know just how dramatic this telenovela-inspired series can get! It's a good thing, then, that the talented Gina Rodriguez plays Jane, the virgin whose accidental artificial insemination results in the unexpected pregnancy the show's first season revolves around. Rodriguez is inspiring in this part because she sticks to her guns, and she's not afraid to be wholly herself, though that may mean some call her a stick-in-the-mud. She knows what she wants and she isn't afraid to assert herself or to go after it. Hear hear!
