Alexa Vega was born Alexa Ellesse Vega in Miami, Florida on August, 27, 1988. She is a former child star best known for playing Carmen Cortez in the Spy Kids movies. She was born in Miami, but moved to California at a young age and nabbed a role in Twister shortly after. She continued acting on television, then shot to fame in 2001 with Spy Kids and its subsequent three sequels. She’s appeared consistently in film and on television since then, but nothing has had the same impact of Spy Kids. However, the films’ director Robert Rodriguez has stood by Alexa, and even gave the newly adult (and very buxom) star a plum role in Machete Kills in 2013.
