We still can’t get over that Jane the Virgin season finale! But even more impressive is Yael Groblas’ awesome performance as both Petra and Aneska.

So here’s a few things you may not know about the breakout actress:

1. She’s half Austrian, half French.

But she was actually raised in Israel! And while she currently resides in LA, she still cooks her favorite Israeli dish, shakshuka. “It’s a perfect homesickness remedy,” she told GrubStreet.

2. Team Michael or Rafael? No way, she’s team Petra!

“There are so many theories of Jane and Petra running off together, seriously, to raise their children by themselves. I thought that would be great,” she recently told Vulture. We love that idea!!

3. She’s a crazy cat lady.

She admitted that she’s always had at least 4 cats since she was born. So cray!

4. Aneska’s mannerisms were actually inspired by her cats.

No, seriously! “A lot of her voice, her yelps, her scratches, her body language, I call it ‘getting the fear.’ So she gets the fear sometimes, you know? She’s based on a few of my cats,” she said. lols!

5. She didn’t grow up thinking she’d become an actress.

Yael, who started off as a dancer and model, said she never considered going into acting until her father encouraged her to take a class. “I’d never considered it, but a light bulb went on,” she said after her dad brought it up.

6. She’s besties with her co-stars!

It’s true. Yael is always spotted hanging out with costars Diane Guerrero (Lina) and Yara Martinez (Luisa) off set. How cute!
