PERSONAL QUOTES (1):

"I lost my father very young, but not young enough to not be aware of what was going on. My father and I had an amazing relationship. We were very close. I fell into a very dark place and I couldn't deal with the loss.

I started eating excessively and gained a lot of weight, and I was very sad. I wasn't in a good place. I wouldn't say I had an eating disorder, I would say I was going through depression."

She is also known for her roles as Monica "Darling" Castello in the action crime film Baby Driver (2017) and as Nyssiana in the cyberpunk action film Alita: Battle Angel (2018).

EARLY LIFE & EDUCATION

González was born on 30 January 1990 in Caborca, Sonora, Mexico, the only daughter of former model Glenda Reyna and Carlos González. Her father died in a motorcycle accident when she was 12; she has cited her father's death as a strong influence in her career. She has one brother who is 12 years her senior.

She attended two private bilingual schools, Edron Academy and the American School Foundation, both located in Mexico City. She stayed in Trento, Italy, where she has relatives, for some time when she was around 10, to learn Italian.

From 2003 through 2004, González studied acting at the M&M Studio, an acting school in Mexico City run by actress Patricia Reyes Spíndola. She completed two years of a three-year course at Televisa's acting school, Centro de Educación Artística, before she was cast as the protagonist in the 2007 teen-oriented telenovela Lola...Érase una vez at the age of 16.

CAREER

While attending school, she was first spotted by producer and director, Pedro Damián, best known for his success with Latin pop band RBD. Two years later, Damian cast González in a remake of Argentina's famous children's telenovela, Floricienta. She portrayed Lola Valente, the lead female protagonist in Lola, érase una vez.

The show began filming in late 2006, and debuted in Mexico on 26 February 2007. It was later shown in various countries throughout Latin America and the United States. Following the completion of Lola, érase una vez, González, accompanied by her mother, moved to New York City briefly in the spring of 2008 to attend a three-month course of acting classes at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. She returned to Mexico City in early fall of that same year.

In April 2009, she was cast in an episode of the popular crime drama television series Mujeres Asesinas as a supporting character for the second season. She starred alongside Mexican actress Susana González in the episode "Tere, Desconfiada", playing the teenage antagonist, Gaby. González has said that she was told about the casting call while she was preparing to release her first solo album Contracorriente.

In 2010, Nickelodeon announced that González would be starring in teen sitcom Sueña conmigo, where she played the characters of Clara Molina and Roxy Pop. For the role, González traveled to Buenos Aires to film in April 2010. She lived in Buenos Aires for a year, traveling back to Mexico City on breaks during the production of the series.

In 2012, González starred in the Televisa series Amores verdaderos, a remake of the TV Azteca television series Amor en custodia. The show premiered on 3 September 2012. Originally, Mexican producer Pedro Torres offered González the lead role of Sofía López-Haro in his television show, Gossip Girl: Acapulco, the Mexican remake of the hit American television series, Gossip Girl. González considered accepting the role, but declined, due to her rigorous filming schedule for Amores verdaderos.

In late August 2013, González moved to Los Angeles to pursue her acting career.

In September 2013, González was cast in director Adrian Cervantes' film, All Hail the Squash Blossom Queen. The film was slated to star Bonnie Wright of the Harry Potter film franchise, and González was expected to play Brittany in the movie, but she was later dropped from the project when the role was recast in 2015.

In November 2013, González was announced as a cast member for producer Robert Rodriguez's television series, From Dusk till Dawn: The Series. González played Santanico Pandemonium, a role portrayed by Salma Hayek in the original film. The role was González's first English-speaking part, and she also featured prominently in print advertisements for the series.

The show was produced by Rodriguez for his El Rey network. González relocated to Austin, Texas, to film the program's first season. Following its U.S. debut, the show became available for streaming internationally on Netflix in the UK, Canada, Australia, Europe and Latin America. On 26 March 2014, the series was renewed for a second season on El Rey.

On 12 August 2014, she hosted the MTV Millennial Awards at the World Trade Center Mexico City in Mexico City. In March 2015, González and the cast of From Dusk till Dawn: The Series returned to Austin, Texas, to begin filming for the show's second season.

She also revealed that she planned to spend the remainder of the year working on new music and would not return to film or television projects until the album was completed.
