Genesis Rodriguez (born Miami, July 29, 1987) is an American actress who began her career playing leading roles in the Telemundo telenovelas Prisionera (2004), Dame Chocolate (2007) and Doña Bárbara (2008–2009). She played Sarah on Entourage (2010–2011) and assistant museum curator/adventurer Jane Walker on Time After Time (2017), and has starred in the films Man on a Ledge (2012), Casa de Mi Padre (2012), What to Expect When You're Expecting (2012), The Last Stand (2013), Tusk (2014) and Run All Night (2015). She provided the voice for Honey Lemon in Big Hero 6 (2014), a role she reprises in the TV series (2017).
Rodriguez was born July 29, 1987 in Miami, Florida. Her mother, Luisa Carolina Pérez Rodriguez "Carol", is a Cuban model. Her father, José Luis Rodríguez, is a Venezuelan actor and singer who is also known by the nickname "El Puma".
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, Rodriguez explored Spanish language roles and played dual leads as Rosita Amado and Violeta Hurtado in the primetime series Dame Chocolate, which aired on Telemundo.
In 2012, Rodriguez 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. She followed that role with an appearance in the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie The Last Stand in 2013, playing villainous FBI Agent Ellen Richards, as well as appearing in the comedy Identity Thief as Marisol. Rodriguez lent her voice to Honey Lemon in the 2014 film Big Hero 6. In February 2017 she appeared, in the main female role, in the music video for Romeo Santos' song Héroe Favorito.
