Prior to Jane the Virgin, Rodriguez starred as the titular character in the 2012 Sundance hit Filly Brown. The movie earned her the ALMA award for Special Achievement in Film, along with cast members Edward James Olmos and Lou Diamond Phillips and director Michael D. Olmos. Hollywood Reporter named her one of the "Top 35 Latinos under 35" that same year. A recurring role on The Bold and the Beautiful followed, along with guest spots on shows such as Longmire and Rizzoli & Isles.

Jane the Virgin premiered in 2014. On the show, Rodriguez plays Jane Villanueva, a religious young woman who is accidentally artificially inseminated and becomes pregnant. The show has won a Peabody award and an AFI Award, and got Rodriguez her first-ever Golden Globe nomination and win.

In 2013, Rodriguez was honored at the National Association of Latino Independent Producers' 14th Annual Conference with the inaugural "Lupe Award," which honors the memory of Latina actress and community activist Lupe Ontiveros. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund.
