The satirical dramedy Jane the Virgin is one of the best shows on The CW. The show is currently on its third season and features Gina Rodriguez, who has received rave reviews for her performance as Jane Villanueva, a young Latina virgin, who becomes pregnant after being artificially inseminated by mistake. Since the show is such a hit, here are 8 things you didn’t know about the Golden Globe-winning series:

8. Gina Rodriguez Was Producers First Choice

Producer Jennie Snyder Urman had anticipated a long search to find an actress to play Jane, but Gina Rodriguez was literally the third person to audition. “You expect it to be a really long search, and to see someone come in, literally the third person [to audition], it was amazing,” Urman said. “She’s 100% genuine and 100% fun. Sometimes I feel like I’m hanging out with one of my college friends.”

7. The Narrator

The narrator of the show, Anthony Mendez, doesn’t have an accent in real life so, for his Emmy-nominated role, he drew from one of three accents that he has in repertoire – the Latin lover. ““I had to make sure the accent was grounded,” Mendez told Vulture. “It also was a conscious effort to make sure it wasn’t a typical over-the-top kind of Dracula telenovela read. In the voice-over business, we call them ‘pukers.’ We wanted to make sure it wasn’t one of those.”
