ABOUT CHRISTINA VIDAL MITCHELL

Christina Vidal Mitchell was born and raised in Whitestone, Queens, New York. Vidal began acting by chance when her elementary school teacher gave her a flyer for an open audition in the film “Life with Mikey.” Eventually, she landed the lead role with Michael J. Fox and achieved two milestones: her professional debut and becoming the first Puerto Rican child actress to play a lead in an American film.

She has since appeared in many television series and specials, holding both series lead and series regular roles. Vidal is often recognized for her performance in the title role of Nickelodeon’s “Taina,” which ran for two seasons and was a cult favorite for tween and teen girls. She later went to star in “Freaky Friday,” opposite Lindsay Lohan (2003), and “See No Evil” (2006). More recently, Vidal starred in the pilot “Curse of the Fuentes Women,” and also held roles in “Code Black,” “Limitless” and “Blue Bloods.”

Vidal starred alongside the late great Bill Paxton in the CBS drama “Training Day,” inspired by the iconic feature film starring Denzel Washington. She appeared as Valerie in the Amazon Original series “Sneaky Pete,” as well as Detective Ayala in ABC’s “Grand Hotel.”

A woman of many talents, Vidal is also known for her musical inclinations. She has collaborated with such artists as Will Smith, Jade Villalon and Sabrina Bryan of the Cheetah Girls. She has also contributed songs for the soundtracks of “Freaky Friday” and “Taina.”

Vidal lives in Los Angeles with her husband, actor/producer Marcus Mitchell, and their young daughter, Willa. In her spare time, she enjoys salsa dancing, cooking for her family and interior decorating.
