“Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez had a fantastic time in Thailand training for muay thai with her boyfriend, Joe LoCicero, so much so that even after a monkey bit her, she was still all smiles.

In a new photo, the actress had on a black tank top with the word “Salty” printed across it. A monkey was hanging on to her as the actress leaned back and laughed. Her boyfriend can be seen looking down and smiling in the background.

Rodriguez then used the photo to greet her 1.4 million followers a Merry Christmas and jokingly said she needs at least four more rabies shots.

She earlier revealed to Access Hollywood that training for muay thai is related to her character Jane Gloriana Villanueva’s transformation this Season 3. “It’s for Jane. There’s a transformation that happens in Jane’s life, so I’m going to go prepare for it,” she earlier said.

But as to what this transformation might be, Rodriguez did not say. Could she possibly be considering a different job or could she be taking on the role of protector for her new family?

In Season 3, Jane was dealt with a hard blow after she almost lost her new husband, Michael Cordero (Brett Dier), after he was shot by his former partner. Thankfully, he survived the shooting. However, as eager as Michael was to return to his old job, he faced certain restrictions because of his physical condition. As a result, he quit his job.

In the promo for Chapter 52, Michael was seen trying his luck as a stand-up comedian. His wife and father-in-law Rogelio Dela Vega (Jamie Camil) were there to support him, but he looked like he was suffering from stage fright.

“Jane the Virgin” Season 3 airs every Monday at 9 p.m. EST on The CW.
