Birth Name: Genesis Rodriguez
Born: 07/29/1987
Birth Place: Miami, Florida, USA

A talented actress and bilingual bombshell, Génesis Rodríguez quickly ascended to international stardom. Born July 29, 1987 in Miami, Florida, Génesis Rodríguez Pérez hailed from a showbiz family; her mother, Carolina Perez, was a famous Cuban model and her father, José Luis Rodríguez, a.k.a. "El Puma," was a famous Venezuelan performer. Trained as an entertainer her whole life, Rodríguez made her acting debut in the telenovela "Prisionera" (Telemundo, 2004), where she played the daughter of a woman jailed for a murder she did not commit. Gorgeous and telegenic, Rodríguez proved a natural for the telenovela format, and she starred as a naïve chocolatier in "Dame Chocolate" (Telemundo, 2007) and as the loyal daughter of the fierce "Doña Bárbara" (Telemundo, 2008-09). English-speaking audiences noticed her when she landed a role on "Days of Our Lives" (NBC, 1965- ), recurred on "Entourage" (HBO, 2004-2011), and made her feature film debut with an ALMA-nominated turn as a jewel thief in the drama "Man on a Ledge" (2012). She showed her talent for comedy as Will Ferrell's love interest in the telenovela parody "Casa de mi Padre" (2012) and as Anna Kendrick's roommate in the ensemble smash "What to Expect When You're Expecting" (2012). The actress continued her rise with juicy supporting turns in the Arnold Schwarzenegger action flick "The Last Stand" (2013) and the Jason Bateman/Melissa McCarthy action comedy "Identify Thief" (2013).
