Eiza González is a Mexican actress and singer who has featured in a handful of movies and television series like From Dusk Till Dawn, an American horror series (2014 to 2016), and the crime film titled Baby Driver (2017). Her transition into the American entertainment industry has been successful as she has gone on to earn some acting roles.
González also boasts of two studio albums and has been nominated in several awards in various categories. She has had an interesting dating history with popular men within the entertainment circles. And all of this has in a way contributed to the relevance she has maintained over the years.
Eiza’s Background Prepared Her for a Career in Showbiz
Eiza González Reyna was born in Sonora, Mexico on the 30th of January, 1990. She hails from Mexico and her mother is Glenda Reyna, a Mexican model and founder of the Glenda Modeling Training Agency. Models who have been signed to the agency include Heidi Balvanera, Celina del Villar, and Elsa Benítez, among others. Her father died when she was just 12 years old, which left her quite depressed. Eiza González also has a sibling named Yulen González Reyna.
The actress has since referred to her father’s death as an inspiration. She attended two private bi-lingual schools which are Edron Academy and the American School Foundation both in Mexico City.
Likewise, she did two years of a three-year course at Televisa’s acting school, Centro de Educación Artística. She wanted to learn more about acting, so she went to M&M Studio in the year 2003, to improve her acting skills.
She Began Acting when She was Young
Eiza González started taking the quest to build a career in the entertainment industry seriously at a young age when she was told after a school audition that she was born to sing.
She believed that with all her heart and ran with it. As fate would have it, she had her start when she was spotted by a producer named Pedro Damian while attending Centro de Educación Artística.
The producer took a liking to her talent and it inspired him to cast her as Lola for the remake of Argentina’s famous children’s Telenovela, Floricienta. Following that appearance, González was cast in an episode of the Mujeres Asesinas as a supporting character in the second season. This marked the beginning of good things to come.
The Genesis of Her English-Speaking Roles
In order to break into the Hollywood industry, she took English classes, motivated by her removal from the cast of a movie because of her inability to speak English fluently.
Having completed her classes, she moved on to Los Angeles to broaden her opportunities in the entertainment industry; this was in August 2013.
Soon enough, she got noticed and was cast in All Hail The Squash Blossom Queen and by November 2013, she got her big break in Hollywood with her feature in the American horror series From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series; it aired from 2014 to 2016.
How has She Fared in Hollywood?
She later appeared in Baby Driver in 2017 as Darling. Eiza is indeed talented and it has helped her book roles in popular projects like Alita: Battle Angel, Bloodshot, She’s Missing, Hobbs & Shaw, and Cut Throat City.
