Jane the Virgin’s Jaime Camil Loves His Cast, Broadway, And Ancient Aliens

Jaime Camil plays the dramatic, charismatic, slightly self-absorbed yet extra-endearing Rogelio De La Vega on the CW’s telenovela-style comedy, Jane the Virgin. Camil, who has starred in many Mexican sitcoms, films and telenovelas, tells Nerdette’s Greta Johnsen why Jane the Virgin is so relatable and how it’s changing the game for people of color on American television. 
Greta Johnsen: What is so relatable about a show like Jane the Virgin? You have so many characters who look different from a lot of your audience, but people love this show.
Jaime Camil: This is a show written for human beings, not a certain ethnicity or demographic. And I think that’s the clue for Jane’s success. Gina Rodriguez happens to be Latina, and we happen to be working with a family that has Hispanic heritage, but that's nothing. That’s just a little extra thing that we have on the show. 
We could be from Vietnam, we could be from Turkey, from Germany -- the show tells stories about human beings and their struggles, regardless of their ethnicity or demographics. 
Johnsen: What do you think Jane the Virgin has done to add dimensions to the portrayal of Latin-American people on TV in the United States?
Camil: A lot. Kudos to Mark Pedowitz, the president of the CW, the network executives, and our producers Ben Silverman and Jennie Urman, because just the fact we’re portrayed as Latinos without having to scream “tacos!” or “fiesta!” in every single line -- just the fact that they portray us as normal people -- normal middle-class America -- is amazing. It’s a win. 
Johnsen: Another thing I love about this show is how much it’s addressing the current political climate without being heavy handed about it. It’s still lighthearted and fun, even though you’re dealing with really serious issues around what it's like to be an undocumented person, worrying about Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids, for example.
Camil: Yes, I think it's the responsibility of the showrunner to speak out when these things happen. We are not CNN. We are a show on the CW that is meant to entertain people. So we're not going to get that heavy in the political scenario or anything, but we are going to address these issues in the way you would address them over coffee with your friends. So we don’t go that deep into them, but we do address them. 
And I think it's important to create some conscience, especially with the political vibe that this country is living right now. There’s a lot going on. And I think it's the responsibility of whoever has the power of communicating to the masses to put out a fair point of view. Like a line Jane had [in a recent episode]: Freedom of speech is not about being comfortable with only the speech that you like. It’s about all kinds of speech, not just the one that favors you. 
Johnsen: I’ve heard that you still consider musical theater to really be your home. Is that true?
Camil: Without a doubt. I love being onstage. That’s where I feel the most complete. It’s like fish in water scenario for me.
Johnsen: What about being onstage feels different from being on TV?
Camil: Every single performance is a new performance, so you feed off the audience and your fellow actors and the energy and the vibe and how the orchestra is feeling. It’s a continuous feedback of so many elements that have to come together in the most perfect way in order to give the audience the experience. 
They go, they sit, they watch the play, and it's probably going to be the first and only time they see the play. So they deserve your very best every time. And that drive of excellence, I just love that. I love that feeling of being onstage and singing and dancing and acting, and you only have one take.
Johnsen: What homework do you have for Nerdette listeners?
Camil: Please watch Ancient Aliens. Oh my dear god, it’s so good! It’s about the theory that we have been visited by aliens. Many times. And how ancient, ancient aliens -- I’m sorry, you asked me, so I’m going for it! It’s a very interesting show that I am completely addicted to.

Corbin Bleu, Jennifer Nettles, Jaime Camil & More Set for Mamma Mia! at the Hollywood Bowl

My my, how can we resist this casting? A bunch of Broadway alums has been tapped for Mamma Mia! at the Hollywood Bowl, including Corbin Bleu, Jennifer Nettles and Jaime Camil. The three are set to play Sky, Donna and Sam, respectively. Performances of the Kathleen Marshall-helmed production will play from July 28-30. David Holcenberg will conduct.

Dove Cameron (Hairspray Live!) and Lea DeLaria (Orange Is the New Black) will also be featured in the cast as Sophie and Rosie, respectively.
Bleu is best known for appearing in the Emmy Award-winning High School Musical franchise. His Broadway credits include Holiday Inn: The New Irving Berlin MusicalGodspell and In the Heights. He appeared in Hairspray at the Hollywood Bowl in 2011 as Seaweed. Grammy winner and Sugarland frontwoman Jennifer Nettles made her Broadway debut in 2015 as Roxie Hart in Chicago. Camil stars in The CW's Jane the Virgin; he also appeared in Broadway's Chicago in the role of razzle-dazzle story swirler, Billy Flynn. He has also appeared on stage in West Side StoryHookAladdin and The Mambo Kings.

Mamma Mia! is the international phenomenon about a young woman's plot to uncover the identity of her father among three of her mother's former loves, all invited to her wedding on a Greek island. Filled with ABBA's timeless songs, including "Dancing Queen" and "Voulez Vous," Mamma Mia! had audiences singing, dancing and having the time of their life on Broadway for a 14-year run. There are currently national tour productions running in London and in the U.S.

Additional casting and creative team will be announced at a later date.


Jaime Camil (‘Jane the Virgin’) teases the season finale: ‘Something’s going to go down’ [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]

“[Series creator] Jennie Urman was kind enough to call us individually to her office, and she laid out the plan,” says “Jane the Virgin” actor Jaime Camil about the discovery that his co-star Brett Dier was being written off the show. Dier’s character, Michael, was an upstanding police officer and the husband of the title character (Gina Rodriguez) before dying of complications from a gunshot wound. “We were all crying while we were reading it, and then Jennie, who is a brilliant writer and a brilliant leader with so much humanity in her, put together a little video of Michael’s best moments after the table read.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Camil about this and more above.
Camil plays vain telenovela star Rogelio De La Vega. Both the actor and character were rooting for Rogelio’s daughter Jane to end up with Michael, but since Michael’s death he’s had a change of heart. “I think the fans and everybody are expecting Jane to end up with [her son’s father] Rafael,” says Camil. And even Rogelio has come around, bonding with Rafael “first and foremost because he’s very handsome.”
Michael’s death wasn’t the only shocking development so far in season three. That traumatic event was immediately followed by a three-year time jump that Camil felt “made perfect sense.” He argues that accelerating the time line kept the show from being bogged down in grief. “It was a brilliant move to show hints of how it was losing Michael, but then let’s keep the energy and the soul of the show going,” he explains. “Eventually time heals you and then you go back into your normal life.”

Season three also saw the romantic reunion of Rogelio and Jane’s mother Xiomara (Andrea Navedo), who not only found their way back together after a long estrangement but got engaged. “When we read [the engagement scene] Andrea and I looked at each other and went, ‘We’re back baby!’ and we high-fived.” So can we look forward to a wedding in their very-near future? “Who wouldn’t want to see a #RogelioWedding. It’s like a gift we give to the audience,” says Camil, but nothing is ever that simple in the world of “Jane the Virgin.” “We have finished shooting the season so I know exactly what’s going to happen … something’s going to go down in the season finale, and you’ll see it’s going to be very cool.”
