Was born in Cuba and moved to Spain when she was 19.
She has central heterochromia. While both of her eyes are green, they have a brown center. In addition, her irises have small dark brown spots.
She only spoke Spanish before moving to the USA. When she arrived in Los Angeles, she was so determined to audition for parts that she pushed herself to learn English, which she managed to do within two years. Her first ever English speaking part was in Knock Knock (2015), and it all went from there.
