Alexa Ellesse Vega (born August 27, 1988) is an American actress and singer. She is known for portraying Carmen Cortez in the Spy Kids trilogy, as well as for a variety of film appearances, including her roles in Sleepover, Odd Girl Out, Walkout and The Beautiful Ordinary. Cute and talented Alexa Vega has managed to establish a quite impressive resume at such a young age. She has worked with a slew of A-list actors such as Michelle Pfeiffer, Helen Hunt and Antonio Banderas and has managed to gain the attention of many well-known directors such as Rob Reiner, Robert Rodriquez and Christopher Columbus.
Vega began her Hollywood voyage portraying the daughter of Burt Reynolds in the laid-back television sitcom "Evening Shade" (1990). Although the series lasted for only one year, the experience proved to be invaluable to the young rising star. She made her feature debut in 1994 as the picture perfect daughter in the family comedy "Little Giants". In 1996, she portrayed JoAnne Thornton, the younger version of Helen Hunt's character in the blockbuster action feature "Twister."
Vega was born in Miami, Florida to a Colombian father and an American mother. Her sisters are actress Makenzie Vega (Saw & Sin City) and Krizia Vega (b. July 1, 1990). She has two half-sisters named Margaux Vega (b. December 25, 1981) and Greylin James (b. September 22, 2000), as well as a half-brother named Jet James (b. October 4, 2005). Vega lived in Florida until she was four years old when she moved with her family to California. She now lives in Los Angeles with her mother, Gina Rue (a model), stepfather Eric James, brother, and sisters. She enjoys freshwater fishing, can speak Spanish fluently, and is an experienced gymnast, as well as a Christian.
In 1996, Vega starred as young Jo Harding in Twister, playing Helen Hunt's character as a young girl, in the scene where the twister claims her father. She guest-starred in numerous television shows and films, including ER, Follow the Stars Home, and The Bernie Mac Show. She became known worldwide in 2001 for her role as Carmen Cortez in the Spy Kids. The first Spy Kids movie was a huge success, and subsequently two sequels, Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams and Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over were filmed. During the shooting of the three films, she performed most of her stunts. Vega would continue to rack up television and feature credits for an additional four years before receiving the role which would ultimately accredit her as a contemporary action hero.
That role came in the form of Carmen Cortez in Robert Rodriguez's blockbuster action feature "Spy Kids"(2000). Vega played one-fourth of the Cortez family who has set out to save the world. "Spy Kids" went straight to number one its first weekend out and immediate plans were made for its sequel. In 2002, Vega returned as Carmen in "Spy Kids 2 : The Island of Lost Dreams" and once again in 2003 for "Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over."
In 2003, she was named one of that year's hottest teen celebrities in Vanity Fair. In 2004, Vega finished filming two films: Sleepover and State's Evidence, and in the following year starred in a made-for-television drama entitled Odd Girl Out. She also filmed for another made-for-TV movie, Walkout. In June 2006, she finished filming The Beautiful Ordinary, scheduled to come out in 2007. She finished filming Repo! the Genetic Opera, which is due out early this year. Vega has also been confirmed as the lead role in Helix, written and directed by Aram Rappaport, which began filming in Chicago in March 2008.
She recorded three songs for the Spy Kids soundtracks (Isle of Dreams, Game Over, and Heart Drive) in which she starred in. She released her debut single, "Isle of Dreams," to coincide with the release of the second film. She also released, "Game Over," for the third film. Another song, "Heart Drive," featuring Bobby Edner charted around that same time but wasn't released as a single.
She made her Broadway debut in the musical Hairspray in the role of Penny Pingleton, replacing Diana DeGarmo. She performed on Broadway until 5 August, 2007.
