Who Is Jaina Lee Ortiz?

Although Ortiz isn't exactly a household name, we're sure that things will change after the release of the Grey's Anatomy firefighter spinoff. After all, Shonda Rhimes is known for taking relatively new names and turning them into stars.

Ortiz has been the female lead of Fox's crime drama called Rosewood. She's also been involved in several small projects like The After, Shooter, Misfire, and Laid Out.
