Rodriguez says she's like her character in more ways than one.

"I'm kind of fiery and feisty, just like SmurfStorm. We're both pretty girl power-oriented. So yeah, there might be some typecasting there, but then I'm also very connected to my friends and protective of them. So in that way, SmurfStorm is just like me."
