Genesis Rodriguez (born July 29, 1987) is an American actress who appeared in films such as Casa de Mi Padre, What to Expect When You're Expecting, Identity Thief, Tusk, Big Hero 6 and Jaume Collet-Serra's Run All Night (with Liam Neeson, Ed Harris and Holt McCallany).
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. Rodríguez has two half-sisters through her father (who are also telenovela actresses), Liliana Rodríguez and Lilibeth (Rodríguez) Morillo. When she was 2½ years old, she entered the Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart in Miami, Florida, taking summer classes at The Lee Strasberg Theater and Film institutes. She participated in school dramatic productions and, at a very young age, decided to pursue an acting career. As a teenager, she studied acting, dance and vocal preparation, locally and nationally.
When Rodríguez's parents observed her determination for the craft, they enrolled her in more 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 primetime series "Dame Chocolate", which aired on Telemundo. After her soap opera and telenovela stints, she later portrayed Sarah on the HBO series "Entourage".
