Jane the Virgins fans can be easily divided into two separate but equally important groups: Team Rafael and Team Michael. But Rita Moreno refuses to adhere to those limited options. “Everybody asks that,” says Moreno. “I keep saying I’m Team Rogelio.”
First prize, at top, went to Panama's Rogelio Moreno, a self-taught hobbyist microscopist who captured an open-mouthed rotifer. The miniscule aquatic animal helpfully mugged for the camera as Moreno snapped his pic. He used a technique call differential interference contrast microscopy to view the transparent creature. He watched it move around for hours, waiting for just the right shot.
“When you see that movement, you fall in love. I thought - wow, that is amazing. I can’t believe what I’m seeing. This is something very, very beautiful,” Moreno said after learning he won the award. “I hope now it can inspire others as much as it has inspired me – to learn about science, to look closely and notice something truly amazing.”
Prepare to meet the woman who gave birth to the fabulous Rogelio De La Vega. Jane the Virgin has tapped legendary West Side Story actress Rita Moreno to play the mother of the scene-stealing soap star, TVLine has learned exclusively.
