Genesis Rodriguez          

Bilingual Actress Known for her Telenovela Roles and the Films "Man on a Ledge" & "What to Expect When You're Expecting"

Génesis Rodríguez Pérez is known for her roles in the Telemundo telenovelas entitled "Prisionera," "Dame Chocolate" and "Doña Bárbara." She also played Becky Ferrer on "Days of our Lives." She has starred in the films "Man on a Ledge," "Casa de Mi Padre," "What to Expect When You're Expecting" and "The Last Stand."

Rodríguez was born July 29, 1987, in Miami, Florida. Her mother, Carolina Pérez, is a Cuban model, and her father, José Luis Rodríguez, is a Venezuelan actor and singer who is also known by the nickname "El Puma." She speaks both English and Spanish fluently.

When Rodríguez's parents observed her determination for acting as a child, they enrolled her in intense training programs. She went to New York and enrolled in summer classes at The Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institutes. She also studied with well-known acting instruction programs in California. Upon returning to Miami, she continued private instruction and obtained a recurring role on the American daytime series "Days of our Lives" from November 2005 through January 2006. She was also a repeat special guest on the Bravo TV series "Top Chef."

In addition to American television, Rodriquez explored Spanish language roles and played dual leads as Rosita Amado and Violeta Hurtado in the daytime series "Dame Chocolate," which aired on Telemundo. In 2012, Rodríguez had a substantial role as the love interest of Will Ferrell in the movie comedy "Casa de Mi Padre," a spoof in the style of the Mexican soap operas of the 1970s.
