Gina Rodriguez had a major fangirl moment while filming Deepwater Horizon. But, the Jane the Virgin star told HipHollywood at the film’s New Orleans premiere that it wasn’t just over her co-star Mark Wahlberg, but pretty much the entire cast.
“I was fanning out all over the place,” laughed Rodriguez. “It was kind of awesome, everyone was so kind and so gracious.”
But, to her credit, there is some major star power in the Peter Berg-directed drama, including Kurt Russell, Kate Hudson and John Malkovich. In the film, which recounts 2010’s disastrous oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico, Rodriguez plays the tough-as-nails dynamic positioning officer.
She told us she fought very hard for the role because it’s one you don’t see many Latina women playing on the big screen.
