THR's 35 Hottest Young Latinos in Entertainment
Vega, 24, launched her career at age 12 with 2001’s Spy Kids, directed by Robert Rodriguez. The franchise spawned three sequels and grossed nearly $350 million domestically. The 2006 HBO Films movie Walkout, based on the true story of a 1968 racial protest in L.A., has given her the most pride as a Latina actress. “It was really nice to be a part of a movie that can educate other people,” says Vega, whose father is Colombian. Vega’s new project is reteaming with Rodriguez for his sequel to cult hit Machete. In Machete Kills, she will play a hit woman named KillJoy alongside Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara. Says Vega, “I’ve never done anything like this!”
