Dina is an ambitious, independent woman in the film business, but is early on tricked (by her lover Nicholas) into killing of Rogelio, as Nicholas had portrayed Rogelio as a diva to the crew on The Passions of Santos. Dina later asks Rogelio to return, as ratings have dropped following his departure. When Dina reappears in Rogelio's life, it is to help him write a scene to reconcile Jane and Xiomara. Dina seems to have foregone her scheming ways, yet is still fiercely in control of her life. She and Rogelio start up a fling, which turns into a relationship when Rogelio is interested in more and pursues Dina.
