Michaela Jaé Rodriguez: Career and Achievements

During college, Rodriguez achieved her dream of playing the role of Angel in a theater production of Rent. With the help of actress Fredi Walker-Browne, who originated a role in the Broadway version, Rodriguez secured an audition and ultimately won the part. Her performance earned her the prestigious Clive Barnes Award in 2011.


During this time, Rodriguez took a break from acting to transition and began hormone replacement therapy. She returned as an actress in 2016 and informed her representation that she would only audition for female roles. Fortunately, they supported her new gender identity. From 2012 to 2016, Rodriguez had small TV roles and made history by being the first transgender actress and character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with her appearance in Luke Cage.

Michaela gained fame through a viral Facebook video of her singing from Hamilton. She auditioned for and performed in various stage productions, as well as had a supporting role in the film Saturday Church, which earned her a Best Actress nomination at Tribeca Film Festival.

Rodriguez was cast as Blanca Evangelista in the FX series Pose, which premiered in 2018. The show is set in 1980s New York City and follows the lives of queer people of color involved with the underground ballroom scene. Rodriguez’s character forms her own “house” called the House of Evangelista after receiving an HIV diagnosis and becomes a surrogate mother to abandoned queer youth of color. Her performance has been applauded by analysts.

Rodriguez, the first openly transgender woman to win Best Actress – Television at the Imagen Awards, recently performed in a benefit concert with her Pose co-stars and played Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors.
