Her Early Life

Charlotte Vega was born on February 10, 1994, in Madrid, to a British mother and Spanish/British father.  After ten months, they moved to Barcelona, where Charlotte grew up.  Her multicultural background has enabled her to speak both English and Spanish as a native and work in both languages from the early stages of her career.  Her grandparents on her father’s side were Spanish, from Andalucia.

“I feel very Spanish at times and then other times I’ll feel very British.  Sometimes Spanish people can be very touchy and overly friendly and I can feel a bit more distant.  Other times, I’ll be with British people and think, oh they’re very cold and distant and need some more Spanish in them!”Charlotte Vega

After taking improv classes and enjoying them, she left equestrian school at the age of seventeen to focus on her career as an actress.

Career Journey

Charlotte made her cinematic debut in 2012 as Dama de Honor 2 in Paco Plaza’s Spanish action horror thriller “REC 3: Genesis,” starring Leticia Dolera and Diego Martin – it was speculated that Charlotte would repeat her role in the film’s fourth installment, but she was not invited to join the cast.

In 2013, she participated in two films: “Los Inocentes,” in which she played Eve, and “Another Me,” a psychological thriller starring Sophie Turner, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Claire Forlani, and based on Catherine MacPhail’s eponymous novel.

Facts and Trivia

Yup, Charlotte is from an equestrian school but gave that up to be a full-time actress…

“I haven’t done any horse riding since I was about 18.  Now, it’s more just a love for horses.  But I wouldn’t want to do any more riding.  I have a different take on it now.  I appreciate them as beautiful beings, as beautiful creatures. I think horse riding is over for me, sadly.”
