Rita Moreno is coming to Jane the Virgin, EW has confirmed.
TVLine initially reported that Moreno will play the mother of Rogelio De La Vega, the telenovela star. That, of course, also makes her Jane’s grandmother. Well, her other grandmother, aside from Alba. Moreno’s character, per TVLine, shows up in episode 18 and is apparently “fiercely protective” of Rogelio.
The 83-year-old Moreno is an EGOT winner, probably best known as the “America”-singing Anita in the film version of West Side Story.
