Mayte Michelle Rodriguez[1] (/rɑːˈdrɡɛz/; born July 12, 1978)[2] is an American actress and screenwriter. Her breakout role was as a troubled boxer in the independent film Girlfight (2000), which was met with critical acclaim and earned her several awards, including the Independent Spirit Award[3] and Gotham Award for Best Debut Performance.[4] The following year, she starred as Letty in the blockbuster film The Fast and the Furious (2001), a role she has reprised in four additional films in the Fast and Furious franchise to date. During her career, Rodriguez has played in a number of successful action films, including Resident Evil , S.W.A.T., and Avatar.

Rodriguez also branched into television, playing Ana Lucia Cortez in the second season of the television series Lost. She has also had numerous voice work appearances in video games such as Call of Duty and Halo, and lent her voice for the 3D animated film Turbo and the television series IGPX.[5] With her films grossing over $5 billion (U.S.) collectively, a 2013 Entertainment Weekly article described Rodriguez as “arguably the most iconic actress in the action genre, as well as one of the most visible Latinas in Hollywood”.[6]

Early life[edit]

Rodriguez was born in San Antonio, Texas. Her mother, Carmen Milady Rodriguez (née Pared Espinal),[a] is Dominican, and her father, Rafael Rodriguez, was a Puerto Rican who served in the U.S. Army.[7][8][9] Rodriguez moved to the Dominican Republic with her mother when she was eight years old and lived there until age 11. Later, she moved to Puerto Rico until the age of 17, and finally settled in Jersey City, New Jersey. She dropped out of high school, but later earned her GED.[10] In total, she was expelled from five schools.[11] She briefly attended business school before quitting to pursue a career in acting, with the ultimate goal of becoming a screenwriter and director.[12]

Rodriguez has 10 siblings and half-siblings. She was partly raised by her devoutly religious maternal grandmother, and was brought up as a Jehovah’s Witness (her mother’s religion), although she has since abandoned the faith.[13][14] A DNA test of Rodriguez, performed by the television program Finding Your Roots, found that her ancestry is 72.4% European, 21.3% African, and 6.3% Native American.[15] She also stated on the show that there was some racial conflict between her families, since her Puerto Rican father had a light complexion and her Dominican mother had a dark complexion.

Career[edit]

Film and television[edit]

Rodriguez at the New York Fashion Week, in 2006

Having run across an ad for an open casting call and attending her first audition, Rodriguez beat 350 other applicants to win her first role in the low-budget 2000 independent film Girlfight. With her performance as Diana Guzman, a troubled teen who decides to channel her aggression by training to become a boxer,[16] Rodriguez accumulated several awards and nominations for the role in independent circles, including major acting accolades from the National Board of Review, Deauville Film Festival,[17] Independent Spirit Awards,[3] Gotham Awards,[4] Las Vegas Film Critics Sierra Awards, and many others. The film itself took home a top prize at the Sundance[18] and won Award of the Youth at the Cannes Film Festival.

Rodriguez has had notable roles in other successful movies, including Letty in The Fast and the Furious (2001) and Rain Ocampo in Resident Evil (2002). She also appeared in Blue Crush and S.W.A.T..[19] In 2004, Rodriguez lent her voice to the video game Halo 2, playing a Marine.[20] She also provided the voice of Liz Ricarro in the Cartoon Network series IGPX.[5] From 2005 to 2006, she played tough cop Ana Lucia Cortez[21] on the television series Lost during the show’s second season (the character’s first appearance was a flashback during the first season’s finale, “Exodus: Part 1“), and returned for a cameo in the second episode of the show’s fifth season, “The Lie“, in 2009. She returned again in the penultimate episode of the series, “What They Died For“, in 2010. In 2006, Rodriguez was featured in her own episode of G4’s show Icons.[22]

In 2008, Rodriguez appeared in the political drama Battle in Seattle opposite Charlize Theron and Woody Harrelson.[23] In 2009, she appeared in Fast & Furious, the fourth installment of the The Fast and the Furious film series.[24][25] Later that year, Rodriguez starred in James Cameron’s high-budget sci-fi adventure epic Avatar, which became the highest-grossing film in history and Rodriguez’s most successful film to date. In 2009, Rodriguez also starred in Trópico de Sangre, an independent film based on the Dominican Republic’s historic Mirabal sisters.[26][27]

In 2010, Rodriguez appeared in Robert Rodriguez‘s Machete.[28] In 2011, she appeared with Aaron Eckhart in the science fiction film Battle: Los Angeles which grossed over US$200 million in the worldwide box office. In 2012, she returned to play the good clone and bad clone of Rain Ocampo in Resident Evil: Retribution. In 2013, she reprised her roles as Letty in Fast & Furious 6 and Luz / Shé in the Robert Rodriguez sequel Machete Kills. She also voiced a character in DreamWorks Animation‘s Turbo.[29]

In 2015, she appeared in Furious 7 which grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide.[30] In 2017, she lent her voice to Smurfs: The Lost Village. She also starred in The Fate of the Furious, which broke records for the largest global box office opening of all-time.[31] She’ll next be reunited with director James Cameron for Alita: Battle Angel and star opposite Viola Davis in Widows from award-winning director Steve McQueen.[32][33]

Screenwriting[edit]

As of 2013, Rodriguez stated she was working on several projects including a family adventure film, a drug drama, and a female-oriented period piece.[34]

Personal life[edit]

Rodriguez’s hobbies include tactical gun training[35], skydiving[36], and DJing.[37]

Relationships[edit]

Rodriguez in 2009

In early 2000, Rodriguez broke off an engagement to a Muslim boyfriend, citing opposition to religious requests he made of her.[38] She has since reportedly dated actors Vin Diesel[39], Olivier Martinez[40] and Zac Efron, and model Cara Delevingne.[41]

In 2013, Entertainment Weekly quoted her saying: “I’ve gone both ways. I do as I please. I am too curious to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing. So are chicks.”[6] As she explained to Latina magazine: “I’m getting older. Eventually it’s going to wrinkle up and I’m not going to be able to use it. I wanted to be honest about who I am and see what happens.”[42] The following year, she said in an interview that she hoped her actions would help others in a similar situation: “Maybe by me opening my big fat mouth like I usually do and stepping up and owning who I am, maybe it might inspire somebody else to do the same.”[43] She described herself as bisexual in another interview later that month: “Bi, yeah, I fall under the B category of LGBT“. Regarding the lack of unconventional female roles available in films, she said: “What’s wrong with being bi? I mean, we’re getting flak everywhere we go.”[44]

Legal issues[edit]

In March 2002, Rodriguez was arrested for assault after getting into a fight with her roommate, but charges were later dropped after the roommate declined to press the allegations in court.[45] In November 2003, Rodriguez went to court to face eight misdemeanor charges based on two driving incidents including a hit and run and driving under the influence (DUI).[46] In June 2004, Rodriguez pleaded no contest in Los Angeles to three of the charges: hit and run, drunken driving, and driving with a suspended license.[47] She went to jail for 48 hours, performed community service at the morgues of two New York hospitals, completed a three-month alcohol program, and was placed on probation for three years.[48]

In 2005, while filming Lost in Hawaii, Rodriguez was pulled over by Honolulu police multiple times for speeding violations and on December 1st she was arrested for DUI.[49][50] In April 2006, she pleaded guilty to one charge of driving under the influence and chose to pay a US$500 fine and spend five days in jail.[47] She cited her high doses of allergy-relieving steroids as part of the reason for her erratic behavior.[51] Because the incident was a violation of her Los Angeles probation, she was sentenced to 60 days in jail, a 30-day alcohol rehabilitation program and another 30 days of community service, including work for Mothers Against Drunk Driving.[52] Because of overcrowding, she was released from jail on the same day she entered.

In September 2007, Rodriguez allegedly violated her probation by not completing her community service and not following an alcohol education program. Her lawyer claimed it was a clerical error.[53] On October 10, 2007, following a hearing, she was sentenced to 180 days jail time after agreeing to admit to violating her probation. She was expected to spend the full 180-day term in jail, but she was released eighteen days later due to overcrowding.[54]

In January 2009, Rodriguez completed her community service and has had no other legal troubles to date.[55]

Patricia Manterola (Spanish pronunciation: [paˈtɾisja manteˈɾola]; born Bertha Patricia Manterola Carrión on April 23, 1972)[1][2][3] is a Mexican singer, actress, model, and fashion designer born in Mexico City.[4][5]

Background[edit]

Patricia Manterola Carrion was born to Jorge Manterola and Maria Dolores Carrion, the second of three children. Her brother, Jorge, is 11 months older than she, and her younger sister, Michelle, who shares the same birth date as Patricia, is eight years younger.

Paty—as she is also known—attended elementary school at “Colegio Miguel Angel” and “Franco-Espanol.” She studied at “Colegio Oxford” in Cuernavaca during her middle school years, where she lived with her extended family for a while. For high school she attended “Tecnologico de Monterey” de Cuernavaca and graduated in Mexico City at “Colegio Miguel Angel.”

In addition to her academics, Paty studied dance, voice, and music. She was the main voice in the chorus of the “Miguel Angel Institute.” Since she was a little girl she demonstrated an affinity for the entertainment world, participating in school plays, until at the age of nine, she was part of the musical comedy “Anita la Huerfanita,” (Little Orphan Annie).

Later, she was part of the festival “Juguemos a Cantar” (1982), together with her brother, Jorge, and two friends, she made it to the finals, which allowed her to record on a compilation album edited for the festival.

Manterola soon entered the world of modeling, which allowed her to meet the Mexican producer Luis de Llano, in 1989, creator of the band, Timbiriche and a successful producer of telenovelas (soap operas). De Llano eventually suggested she audition for the group, but noticing her talent, invited her to be part of a new project known as Garibaldi.

Personal life[edit]

On April 17, 1999, Paty married Javier Ortiz, a fellow ex-member of Garibaldi. Yet they divorced a little over five years later, in 2005. In a joint letter to the media, Manterola and Ortiz addressed their separation and asked for the public to respect their privacy during this difficult time.[6] She married Forrest Kolb on December 12, 2010 in Xcaret on the Mayan Riviera, Mexico. They were married in a small private wedding with 200 guests and she was dressed by her close friend, Nicolas Felizola.[7]

Acting[edit]

Manterola made her acting debut with ¿Dónde Quedó La Bolita? (1993), a comedy featuring Garibaldi. In 1994, after a Garibaldi live performance in Acapulco, Manterola launched her solo career with the release of Hambre de Amor. Paty’s newfound notoriety allowed her to make the smooth transition into acting. Soon thereafter, Paty earned roles in various telenovelas (soap opera) such as Acapulco, Cuerpo y Alma (1995) and Gente Bien (1997). She received the newcomer of the year award from the Latin American soap opera magazine, TV y Novelas for her portrayal of Lorena on Acapulco, Cuerpo y Alma.[8]

Within a few years, Manterola was a sought after star, acting in several telenovelas such as: Los Angeles de Charlie (Charlie’s Angels), Apuesta por un Amor (Gamble for Love), and Destilando Amor. She has also done cameo appearances in Ugly Betty, Muchas Muchachas and in La Fea Mas Bella. Manterola was nominated for a TVyNovelas Award for Best Lead Actress for her work on Apuesta por un Amor.

While Manterola has received greater acclaim in her native Mexico, she has also had a transnational impact by appearing in American television and films. For instance, she has appeared in HBO‘s Arli$$, Souvenir (1997), The Hazard City (2000), The Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood! (2000) and Carman: The Champion (2001).

In her role as Gabriela in the Dukes of Hazzard movie, Manterola demonstrated her bilingual ability as her character was pitted as Bo Duke’s (John Schneider) love interest. A few years prior to the movie’s release, she had enrolled at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to study English.

In addition, Manterola had roles on the movies The Singer (2008) and The Perfect Game (2009).

Garibaldi[edit]

Garibaldi was a Mexican group of young men and women, wearing a very free version of the traditional charro costume while singing modern version of traditional songs, causing some controversy. The name Garibaldi comes from Plaza Garibaldi in Mexico City where mariachi bands can be found.

The former members, and their current occupations are:

Discography[edit]

Activism[edit]

Manterola has also been a noted defender of animal rights. On her personal website, Manterola declares: “Hasta los animales mas exoticos merecen vivir en libertad.”[9] (“Even the most exotic animals deserve to live in freedom.”)

As such, in 2001 she posed nude on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). In 2004, she protested Kentucky Fried Chicken‘s cruel treatment of chickens and urged the multimillion-dollar corporation to adhere to a kinder, gentler methodology. More recently, Paty has advocated on behalf of the monarch butterflies that migrate from Alaska to the Mexican state of Michoacán. She donated personal jewelry which was sold at auction to further the cause.[10]

Manterola’s altruism is not solely restricted to animal rights and the environment. In January 2006, she personally donated 1,500 toys for the children of the Delegacion Miguel Hidalgo in Chapultepec. “No hay con qué pagar la sonrisa de un niño,” Manterola said.[10] (“A child’s smile is priceless.”) In 2007, Patricia joined the Baja Una Estrella Foundation to help in the development of education, health, and social development for poor communities in Mexico.[11]

Designing career[edit]

In 2004, Manterola planned to open a business in the Mexican city of Puebla, launching her own line of jeans, “B-good”, suitable for everybody.[citation needed]

She has appeared in feature films such as Tormented (2009), Chatroom (2010), Cleanskin (2012), Trance (2013), The Lady Vanishes (2013), The Imitation Game (2014), and Jupiter Ascending (2015), as well as in television series such as Bones (2008), New Tricks (2010), Friday Night Dinner (2011), Sinbad (2012), Spies of Warsaw (2013), and Black Mirror (2013), and Sense8 (2015).

She starred in two British period dramas screened around the same time, Dickensian (2015–16), playing Miss Havisham, and War & Peace (2016), in which she played Russian princess and villain Hélène Kuragina.

Early life[edit]

Tuppence Middleton was born on 21 February 1987 in Bristol, England, to Nigel and Tina Middleton.[1] She was named “Tuppence” after the childhood nickname her grandmother gave to her mother.[2] She was raised in Clevedon, Somerset,[3] with younger brother Josh and older sister Angel.[1]

She attended Bristol Grammar School[4], where she was involved in school plays, including Guys and Dolls, in which she played the lead role. She also attended Stagecoach, a performing arts school in Portishead. She appeared in local drama productions, including a pantomime at the Princes Hall, Clevedon, with her sister.[1]

She subsequently studied acting at the Arts Educational School in Chiswick, London, earning an honours degree in acting.[1]

Career[edit]

Middleton gained a following for her appearance in the 2009 British horror/comedy Tormented.[5] Her character, head girl Justine Fielding, dates one of the most popular boys in school, only to find that he and his friends were responsible for a classmate’s death. She has also appeared in adverts for the chewing gum Extra and Sky TV.

In 2010 she was nominated for the London Evening Standard Film Awards 2010 for Most Promising Newcomer and she starred in Samuel Abrahams‘s BAFTA-nominated short film “Connect”.[6] In 2011, she played the character Tanya Greene in the British sitcom Friday Night Dinner,[7] and Sarah in Sirens. In 2012 she appeared in Cleanskin, a terrorist thriller.[8] In March 2013 she made her professional theatre debut in The Living Room.[9] She also played a minor role in the Danny Boyle film Trance. In 2015, she starred in the Netflix Original Series Sense8 as Riley Blue.

She starred in the 2016 BBC drama War & Peace, playing Russian aristocrat Princess Hélène Kuragin.[10]

The series received critical acclaim and featured fellow young actress Lily James also known for her period dramas. The Daily Express said: “Rising star Tuppence Middleton takes on the role of the delightfully evil Helene Kuragina, who is one half of the incestuous duo. Audiences witnessed her brother getting a little too intimate with his sibling in the first episode before she turned her attentions to Pierre and dug her claws into him. She is a vile character who will use and abuse Pierre without giving him a second thought, to stop the beautiful Helena (Lily James) Pierre real love marrying him.”[citation needed]

Andrew Davies, who adapted War and Peace, described Middleton’s Hélène as “the naughtiest woman on TV at the moment”.[11]

Personal life[edit]

She has in interviews described herself as shy. “I liked to be in my own company, so when I came home from school, I’d just go up to my room and hang out by myself. I wouldn’t really have friends over or go to see friends much. I was very, very shy in public and school, and quite loud and brash at home. As I got older, I auditioned for drama school and shocked myself by getting in.”[12] She has also said she has been asked if she is related to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge: “Since Kate Middleton came around, some people think I’m related to her, but unfortunately, there’s no connection.”[13]
