Andrea Navedo Talks About Being An Actress Mom, Fan Appreciation, And Life Out Of The Show Set

Andrea had a lot of interesting things to reveal in an interview regarding hit Tv-show Jane The Virgin. The actress aptly answered multiple questions, some of which included her life outside of the job.

"I can easily tap into the feeling of being a mother and the feeling of; you always want what’s best for your kids. And that’s where most parents come from. Even if you’re making mistakes to an outsider, you’re coming from a place of love and you really want the best for your kids. So I can easily tap into that, and I relate to Gina and Jane in that way." answered Andrea when she was questioned if her character( Xiomara Villanueva) portrays the way she acts as a mother in real life. 

She further confessed that her kids watched and loved the show. As follow-up, she was asked if it was hard to keep the spoilers from her family to which she replied to with,

Yes and no. I’ve kind of gotten really good with it. My daughter one day said to me at the end of season two, “Okay, what happens, tell me what happens!” And I was like, “I’m not telling you!” And she said, “What, I’m your daughter, and that should be one of the perks, that I get to hear!” And I said, “No, I’m not going to spoil it for you!” So, I don’t tell my kids, and I don’t even tell my husband. They know nothing. There’s some really good stuff coming up, and I haven’t told them. And I have to skirt around it because it involves casting and stuff like that. I can’t come home and say, “Oh, today, we meet so-and-so, we have this new blah blah blah.” I can’t tell them because it’s kind of a big plot point, so I don’t tell them anything. And also, my daughter’s friends watch the show, so I just keep it to myself.

She also talked about her appreciative she was towards the support from her fans and how she was very down to earth with them saying,

Well, I’ll be honest. At the beginning, I was kind of apprehensive about engaging because, I mean, I grew up on the mean streets of New York, you know? So you always have your guard up. And being in the public eye, you still have to have a certain amount of reservation with how you handle yourself. But I think it’s because I realized that a lot of the fans are women, a lot of them are Latinas, a lot of them are young, and you can tell by what they say that they’re truly supportive. Without them, the show wouldn’t exist, really, wouldn’t have the legs that it has. So, it’s really out of appreciation, and also knowing what it’s like to be a fan.

Navedo also hopes that the show shows Positive effects towards young Latina women especially topics regarding Career and Future planning and planned parenthood.

I hope they(latina women) take away from the show that there are different options in life. Anywhere from birth control to careers to pursuing your dream and not giving up. I think there are a lot of positive messages [about] acceptance and diversity and different cultures.
