She emerged out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, starring in the acclaimed Filly Brown opposite Lou Diamond Phillips, and landed a lead role in Sleeping With the Fishes. Rodriguez, 27, grew up in inner-city Chicago in a household where she says education, not arts, was at the top of the list. “My dilemma,” she says, “was to follow a dream that seemed unfathomable in an industry where my culture wasn’t portrayed in a positive light.” Luckily for Rodriguez, her parents supported her as she trained at NYU’s Tish School of the Arts.
