Christian Serratos biography

Christian Serratos

Date of Birth: September 21, 1990

An only child, Christian Serratos was raised in Burbank, California by her Italian/Mexican mother, a jewelry designer, and her Italian/Irish father, a veteran set construction worker. Born in Pasadena, Serratos visited her father's sets before she was even able to talk, and by three years old, she began working as an extra on shows like The Drew Carey Show and Coach.

At the age of seven, she was signed to powerhouse Ford Modeling Agency where she modeled for a series of Sears's advertisements and other commercial work. Throughout her time acting and modeling, Serratos also trained and competed as a figure skater beginning at age three and actively competed for 10 years.

Her first major role was "Suzie Crabgrass" on Nickelodeon's Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, which ran for three seasons and included a TV movie titled Ned's Movie.

Immediately following, she was cast in as Bella's high school friend—the genuinely nice and honest Angela—in the unbelievably popular film Twilight. She reprised her role in the follow up films: The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

Serratos, a full-time vegetarian, is the exotic face of PETA's controversial "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" campaign. She posed nude for PETA's anti-fur advertisements—following stars such as Christina Applegate, Eva Mendes, Khloe Kardasian, and Charlize Theron. Serratos was also recently named one of PEOPLE Magazine's 100 Most Beautiful People.

Other television credits include guest starring roles on Zoey 101, 7th Heaven, and Disney's Hannah Montana.

Serratos enjoys playing guitar and singing, and she also has an obsession with going to the beach. The star—whose favorite foods are pasta and pizza—loves to try new restaurants. She currently resides in the Los Angeles area, where she hopes to buy a home for herself and her five miniature poodles: Gorilla, Uffie, Gigi, Polar and Gibson.
