She’s also appeared in popular TV shows such as “Mujeres Asesinas,” “Los Heroes del Norte,” “Gossip Girl” and her father’s “La Familia P. Luche.”

In film, she’s nabbed roles in “El Cielo en tu Mirada,” “El Atentado” and “Tierra de Sangre” to name a few. This is in addition to her acting in theater and web series.

Her newest venture, however, serves as her first big break role as a lead in a film opening in the U.S.
