'Jane the Virgin' Taps Charo for Guest Role
Jane the Virgin is getting a visit from a triple threat.
Actress, singer and comedienne Charo is set to play herself on an upcoming episode of The CW comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Charo will appear in episode 16 of the critical darling's sophomore season as herself. A dear friend of Rogelio's (Jaime Camil), she is in town hoping for a very special invite to a very special event.
News of her appearance comes not long after Rogelio name-dropped the Hollywood veteran, lying to his intern that they shared a romantic past to see if he was trustworthy. Although it wasn't his intern who spilled the (fictional) beans, the story still leaked to the tabloids. Here's hoping their meet-up isn't too awkward.
Charo is the latest singer to visit Jane the Virgin, following Rita Moreno, Kesha and Britney Spears, who also played herself.
Charo's recent appearances include Celebrity Wife Swap and Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23. She is repped by 323 Talent Management.
Jane the Virgin airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
