On March 22, 2016, Gina Rodriguez announced on her Snapchat account that Derek would make a guest appearance on the show “Jane the Virgin“. The info was confirmed two days later by Entertainment Weekly. The next day, Derek was there to shoot his scene and it seems like they all had a great time. The episode aired on April 18, 2016 on The CW.
Derek’s plot: Derek was part of one of Jane’s fantasies for the romance novel she is writing. During the fantasy, he dances a hot salsa with “Jane” and at the end of the dance they share a kiss.
Below you can see the videos and pictures Derek and other actors of the show posted on their social media accounts and of course Derek’s scene on the show! 🙂
