Jaime Camil is a Mexican-Brazilian Heart-Throb best known for his role as a “Casanova” in telenovelas such as “La Fea Mas Bella” and “Qué Pobres tan Ricos” etc. Which is uncanny that in this comedic series “Jane The Virgin” the first scene has him on their TV screen in the similar role.
“Jane The Virgin” portrays the unexpected yet unusual situations that occur within the todays Latino family. How we have circumstances that arise where we tend to find solutions for without having all the facts. Kind of like assuming the answering in an algebra problem without knowing the “x” or the “y” in the problem. Then here comes “Super-Dad” attempting to save the day with less information then the rest. Merely fragments of sentences he hears walking down the hall or ease dropping on a phone call.
Jaime’s personality shines through every role he has ever played in sitcoms, films, and commercials. Is it his radiant smile and the twinkle in his eyes that make the fans fall in love with him?
Jaime’s Role as Rogelio in “Jane The Virgin” is more comedic then any series I’ve seen in a long time. His relationship with daughter Jane, played by Gina Rodriguez, reminds me so much of the typical Hispanic family. The dad that tries but doesn’t really know what he is doing. The women of the house giving him credit yet harmlessly chismosas poking fun with just a bit of sarcasm. I so relate lol…
“Rogelio” as the prince charming is what every little girl dreams of from hearing fairly tales or watching our telenovelas. His attempt of being a supportive dad with Jane is um ??? “Brownie point worthy!”
I’m looking forward to seeing all his wonderful dad moments and romantic rekindling with Jane’s mom. If I get anything out of watching this series, is that Jaime Camil would give me a great insight of what I would have to look forward to having a child with a telenovela star like Rogelio.
A Girl Can Dream, Can’t She?
