Name: Alexa Ellesse Vega
Birth Date: August 27, 1988
Birth Place: Miami, Florida, USA
Born on August
27, 1988 in Miami, Vega spent her early years
living on a nearby Florida farm. Alexa grew
up on a farm in Florida for a while, when she
was four, her family relocated to California,
where her mother got a job with a talent agency.
Her mother decided to take the four-year-old
to an audition for the Burt Reynold's TV series
"Evening Shade". On her first try,
Alexa got the role. It was the beginning of
a very successful career. Alexa landed other
small roles in ER and Ladies Man. Her film credits
include a role as Priscilla O'Shea in "Little
Giants", Gina in "Dennis the Menace
Strikes Again", young Helen Hunt in "Twister",
and roles in "Nine Months", "The
Glimmer Man", and "Ghosts of the Mississippi".
Just before she got involved in the movie that
turned her career around, Alexa was acting in
"Follow the Stars Home". Then she
went in to audition for a Robert Rodriguez movie.
She almost didn't land the role. Vega returned
to series television as Alfred Molina's daughter
in CBS' short-lived sitcom Ladies Man, before
taking center stage in Spy Kids. All the other
girls trying out for a role in Spy Kids, were
8, while she was 10. But that didn't keep Rodriguez
from spotting her talent. She was cast as Carmen
Cortez, a secret agent, in the 007 spoof "Spy
Kids". Along with co-star Daryl Sabara,
Vega insisted on doing the majority of her own
stunts, instantly becoming a hero to kids everywhere.
The movie, which also featured Antonio Banderas,
Carla Gugino, Alan Cumming, and Tony Shalhoub,
was a box-office smash. Vega returned a year
later for its highly anticipated sequel, Spy
Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams (2002), which
featured the kids traveling to a lost island
in an effort to thwart the evil plans of a mad
scientist played by Steve Buscemi. In the Summer
of 2004, Vega's first post-Spy Kids film, was
