Golden Globe Award, Critics' Choice Award, Teen Choice Award nominee and Imagen Award winner Jaime Camil, named by VANITY FAIR as one of the Best New TV Characters of 2014, plays "the scene-stealing comedic bright spot," Rogelio de la Vega, the supremely vain, but totally well-meaning, famous telenovela star and Gina Rodriguez's father on the CW hit series "Jane the Virgin."

Critic's Choice, Imagen and Teen Choice Award nominee , Jaime Camil, named by VANITY FAIR as one of the Best New TV Characters, plays "the scene-stealing comedic bright spot," Rogelio de la Vega, the supremely vain, but totally well-meaning, famous telenovela star and Gina Rodriguez's father on the CW hit series "Jane the Virgin."

Camil began his career as a singer performing alongside Cuban icons Amaury Gutierrez and Pancho Cespedes before going on to star in the mega hit telenovelas MI DESTINO ERES TÚ and LA FEA MÁS BELLA in his native Mexico. He has starred in a multitude of award-winning films including Pulling Strings, 200 Cartas (alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda), and 7 Dias (which earned him the "Best Supporting Actor" honors from the Premios ACE and the Mexican Cinema Journalists respectively).

Camil's career continued to skyrocket following star turns in the gender-bending comedy POR ELLA SOY EVA and the fish-out-of-water romp QUE POBRES TAN RICOS. He has recorded four platinum selling albums and has led many musicals in Mexico City including West Side Story, Hook, Aladdin, El diluvio que viene and more. In 2005 he led the Broadway-bound musical The Mambo Kings.

Camil currently stars on the hit CW sitcom JANE THE VIRGIN, where he has quickly become a fan-favorite, and he just recently wrapped a two month run on Broadway starring as "Billy Flynn" in America's longest-running hit musical CHICAGO. Camil will return to the big screen in 2016, starring in the Spanish-language comedies MAURICE, MODISTO DE SENORAS and CLIPPED.

Camil, along with his wife and two children, currently reside in Los Angeles.
