The series premiere of Jane The Virgin is only five days away! We can’t wait to see the story of a woman who was waiting for marriage to lose it, who suddenly finds herself knocked up!
TV DivaGal got a chance to chat with Andrea Navedo (pictured left), who plays Jane’s mom Xiomara, to get a little scoop on her role and of course, her beauty secrets.
How would you describe Xiomara?
She’s super fun, vivacious and a little insecure (chuckles). She’s a loving mother and just a big believer.
What is Xiomara’s reaction to her daughter’s immaculate conception?
She can’t believe it, that it’s impossible because she’s her daughter. I’m play the type of mother that if my daughter says something is true, it is. So when she says she’s never had sex, there’s gotta be another logical explanation as to why she’s pregnant.
This show features a prominent Latino cast.
I feel like this show is making a serious statement in terms of the diversity. It’s totally going to have a nice female audience, but it’ll have a diverse audience as well.
What’s your top beauty tip?
It’s to exfoliate my lovely Puerto Rican skin! I started using Jan Marini Retinol Plus Mask, and then I use the CVS body buff sponge but I use it on my face. It sounds extreme but it’s not. I also use Glytone. It’s got a glycol acid wash and it keeps everything smooth and even.
Jane The Virgin premieres Monday, Oct. 13 at 9 p.m. on The CW.
