Who is Christian Serratos?

Born under the earth sign of Virgo on 21 September 1990, in Pasadena, California, USA, Christian Marie Serratos (nee Bernardi)  is a 28-year-old American actress and model, perhaps best known for her role of Angela Weber in the “Twilight” movie franchise. In recent years, she’s achieved further fame by taking on the part of Rosita Espinosa in the hit TV series “The Walking Dead”. As a child, Christian became noticed by playing Suzie Crabgrass in “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide” on Nickelodeon. She hasn’t been all that active, but most of her credits are critically acclaimed films and shows, indicating that she really has “a nose” for the right role.

Early Life and Education: Growing Up in California

Christian was born into a family of mixed heritage. Her mother is a jewelry designer, public relations expert and a marketing agent at ACSPR – she is of Mexican descent, with some Irish roots mixed in there as well. As for Chrstian’s father, he is a set construction worker, and is of Italian descent. Ever since she was a toddler, her parents supported her when it came to every idea or goal. One such thing was figure skating, which Christian took up at the age of three, and performed competitively, winning innumerable trophies and medals.

‘My coaches were talking about the Olympics, and it was really crazy. Now, I just do it for fun.’, said Serratos in an interview a few years ago. This multi-talented young lady also trained in several forms of dance, including hip hop, ballet and jazz. At the age of seven, she signed with the Ford Modeling Agency, and went on to appear in several commercials and catalogues. However, a year later, she decided this was not the vocation for her, and instead switched her focus to acting.

Career Beginnings: A Star from the Get Go

In 2004, 14-year-old Christian made her debut in style. Taking on the role of Suzie Crabgrass, in “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide” on Nickelodeon, she became an instant celebrity, as the show was watched by kids and teenagers all over the US. The show chronicles the life and times of Ned Bigby, who struggles to find his way in middle school. Suzie, Christian’s character, garnered rave reviews, and was praised as one of the most crucial roles in the entire series. Around the same time, Serratos appear in “Hannah Montana”, “7th Heaven” and even “Zoey 101”, which made her an even bigger star.

Becoming Globally Popular: The Twilight Saga, The Secret Life of the American Teenager and More

In 2008, just months after “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide” was discontinued, Christian found her place as Angela Weber in “Twilight”, based on the book of the same name by Stephanie Meyer. Her character was the best friend of Bella, the star, and again she was praised as a positive influence, mostly because of her insightful perspective and a wise approach to the problems the characters faced. While Christian’s role in the first movie was minor, she earned herself a bigger “piece of the pie” in the subsequent four movies. She was beloved by fans, and hailed as the best and purest human character in the entire saga. After “Twilight”, Serratos went on to appear in “96 Minutes”, “Pop Star”, “Flight 7500” and even the music video for “Howlin’ for You” by The Black Keys.

Recent Works: The Walking Dead

While most actors we encounter have a myriad of acting credits, this is not the case with Christian. In 2014, after a few less popular movies, she was cast in “The Walking Dead”, assuming the role of Rosita Espinosa, one of the main characters of the show. She is a part of every important plotline, and is always amongst the top of fan favorite lists of “The Walking Dead” characters. She is set to reprise her role in Season Ten of the show, which is coming soon according to reports.

Personal Life: Is Christian Serratos Married? Does She Have Any Children?

Christian Serratos is unmarried, but she is in a relationship with David Boyd, the singer of the massively popular Danish rock band “New Politics”. They began dating in 2014, and in March 2017 announced that they were expecting their first child soon, and in May welcomed their baby daughter into the world.

Serratos is a passionate fighter for animal rights, even appearing in multiple PETA campaigns. She is a proud vegan and actively promotes the lifestyle to her fans. ‘We’ve been programmed to think meat is protein and you need meat. No, we are not cavemen. There are plenty other ways’, she stated during one interview.

She also made a wise choice by accepting the part of Rosita in “The Walking Dead”. If we see her continue picking roles in such a manner, there is no telling how much her net worth will increase in the near future.

Quotes

#Quote
1I've been designing my own pieces for a long time. My mother's a jewelry designer, so we knew at some point we were going to do a line and dive into the fashion world.
2My first on-screen kiss was lame: Nickelodeon. But my first real-life kiss was super cute and nice, but still very awkward. It was with this hot skateboarder with dreadlocks. He was my little Rasta man.
3Some days, I know beauty techniques like it's my job, and other days I can't do my makeup for the life of me. So I find it easiest to just put on mineral veil and a little mascara and call it a day. I use Physician's Formula and Bare Minerals every day of my life.
4When I stopped eating meat, I noticed that it was easier for me to focus, and I was really proud of myself for being green also... I had a plethora of reasons for going vegetarian.
5You can get fake fur, which, if that's what you want - if you want that fur look - it looks just the same. It's really unnecessary to skin an animal when you can get something that looks just the same without hurting anything.
6I listen to the Mars Volta and Fiona Apple every day. I feel if you do write music, you write what you listen to, and you couldn't possibly write in another genre. So those are the two that I usually use.
7I usually go to Lush for hair products. I had no idea that this existed, but they have a shampoo rock, and it looks like a bar of soap, and I was tripping out when they told me it was a shampoo, so that's pretty sweet.
8I was a serious competitive figure skater and still ice-skate as much as I can. Anyway, I once brought a date to the rink to have him experience what I was into. So all is going fine, and then - bam! - he bit it extremely hard! Skate time was over. His bruises were scary. I felt so bad.
9I'd love to play someone who's insane or something, just so I can go flake out. I like a superhero. I know that's ironic. That's where we are, but seriously, it'd be really cool to play a superhero.
10I'm not a really big comic book person. I know the typical ones - 'Spider-Man' and 'Wonder Woman' and 'Storm' and that stuff. But don't quiz me, because I'm not good at things like that.
11Dia de Los Muertos is a holiday that pays tribute to the dead and also celebrates life. So I thought, what better of an idea to bring it in with PETA and let people know how we can respect the living and the dead. Going vegetarian could be an incredible option for people if they would just educate themselves.
12I have a lot of 'Twilight' gear. I love the hoodies that say 'vampires' and 'werewolves,' but I refuse to get one because I can't choose; I have to have them both. I have the Team Edward T-shirt, but I also have Team Jacob.
13I have a terrible, terrible fear of knives. I only buy food that I don't need to cut... I haven't cut my food in years! Like, I won't even touch a plastic knife or anything sharp. And if I'm in a kitchen and somebody picks up a knife, I leave.
14I have little weird things that aren't really specific but are just kind of odd. I write my 5's backwards, and I don't know if anyone would even care, at all.
15I know a lot of people who don't wash their makeup off of their face at night, and I think that's the worst thing ever. So my thing is, if you ever have a day that you get dolled up, you have to wash all of that makeup off.
16I make a fabulous tofurkey for Thanksgiving. My Mexican-Italian family can't tell the difference.
17I've always been opposed to slaughtering, eating, and wearing carcasses.
18It'd be fun to do a comedy with someone like Sandra Bullock.
19'Twilight' has been a great opportunity, and it's been great fun. Hey, if I'm 50, and someone still wants an autograph for 'Twilight,' OK, cool.
20We've been programmed to think meat is protein and you need meat. No, we are not cavemen. There are plenty other ways.
