Gina Rodriguez Gushes Over Britney Spears' Appearance on 'Jane the Virgin': 'It's Gonna Be Epic'
By Emily Krauser
Gina Rodriguez is fangirling as hard as the rest of the us over Britney Spears' upcoming guest spot on Jane the Virgin.
ET caught up with the presenter, who was dressed in a floral embroidery Lorena Sarbu ballgown, on the 2015 Emmys red carpet on Sunday, and she couldn't hide her excitement about getting to work with the pop star.
"It's gonna be epic for me," Rodriguez tells ET. "I can't say anything more than Britney Spear will be playing herself and that she's awesome."
"She's so loving and so supportive of the show, and she's gonna kick ass," she adds.
Spears, 33, hasn't started shooting with the cast yet, but Rodriguez is confident that the "Pretty Girls" singer will be fabulous. "I think she's gonna be everything I'm dreaming of," the 31-year-old actress gushes.
The appearance may be just as dreamy for Jane the Virgin fans, as showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman spilled to ET last month that there will be music in Spears' episode. While Rodriguez wouldn't confirm what exactly that means, she did tease that there will be music magic.
"You're gonna get a moment," Rodriguez tells ET. "It's gonna be a moment, too, like the only moment. It's gonna change my memories of life forever. You are going to be so happy and jealous."
On Wednesday, ET chatted with Andrea Navedo, who plays Jane's mom on the sitcom, at People's Ones to Watch party in Los Angeles, and the 37-year-old actress implied that Rodriguez will actually get to sing with Spears in the episode.
Just like Rodriguez, we can only dream!
Season two of Jane the Virgin premieres Monday, Oct. 12, on The CW.
