Enjoying some overseas promotional duties, Genesis Rodriguez was seen hamming it up at the photocall for “Man on a Ledge” in Madrid, Spain today (March 21).

The “Casa de mi Padre” actress looked amazing as she worked her magic for the cameras at the ME Hotel in a beige top and colorful skirt.

Genesis recently shared that ditching her Telemundo contract to try for a career in film was a leap of faith- and it looks like it paid off big time.

"I took a huge risk by walking away from a steady paycheck to chase a dream. But I had always wanted to act in Hollywood films. I didn't care if I was going to be stuck playing Girl No. 2. Apart from being Hispanic, I'm also bi-cultural. I consider myself as American as a cheeseburger. So I wanted to give it a shot."

As for her “Casa” tryout with Will Ferrell, Ms. Rodriguez explained that it was full of funny moments. "During the audition, Will kept laughing when played our scenes, and I didn't know if that was good or bad, because I was trying to be dead-serious. And he literally couldn't get his lines out because he was laughing so hard. It's very surreal when you're starting out as an actor and someone like Will Ferrell validates you. It's the best stamp of approval I could hope for."
