||Adam Sandler's romantic comedy Spanglish proudly announced "Introducing Paz Vega" in its credits, but in reality the actress is far from a silver screen newcomer. Although the 2004 flick was her first major Hollywood role, she had already starred in nearly 20 films in her native Spain. Originally hailing from the historic city of Seville in the south of the country, Paz made her name as a TV star before hitting the big screen in critically acclaimed movies like Sex And Lucia and Talk To Her.
Like her glamorous compatriot Penelope Cruz, Paz is keen to continue working on Spanish films while pursuing a career in Tinseltown. Currently back home filming a thriller called Angel In The Dark, later this year she'll be teaming up with Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe in the family drama December Boys.
