Did you have a crush on Alexa Vega back in the day?
I’m old enough to be her older brother, so I can’t say that I was a fan when she broke into the business.
I do clearly remember working at a video store in New York City as the world rolled into the 21st century, and there were some youngsters who would repeatedly come in asking to rent Spy Kids. Or grandparents came in looking for Spy Kids, because their grand kids were coming over for the weekend.
Apparently Vega was a tween of impressive skill. A super spy with stellar locks and looks potential.
Now she’s all grown up, and playing the roll of Killjoy in the Machete sequel, Machete Kills. Perhaps stating that she’s all grown up at 24 years old, is a bit of an understatement. Vega has already worked into and out of her first marriage. So, she’s single, fellas.
She has always been a favorite of Robert Rodriguez, creator and director of the Spy Kids franchise, and it will be interesting to see if this role will parlay into more opportunities.
Machete Kills stars everyone from Jessica Alba to Sofia Vergara to Mel Gibson, Lady Gaga, Cuba Gooding Jr. and even Charlie Sheen. And of course Danny Trejo as Machete.
