She’s featured in series such as Jane The Virgin and movies such as Sin City and  Zombieland: Double Tap. Now the actress has a lead role in her own TV series, a crime drama called Briarpatch. It’s based on a 1984 crime mystery of the same name by author Ross Thomas, but unlike in the novel the lead character is a woman rather than a man.  

Rosario (41) plays Allegra Dill, an investigator and political fixer who returns from Washington DC to her hometown in Texas to get to the bottom of the mysterious murder of her younger sister. And she has a secret of her own – she’s having an affair with her boss, a US senator.
